Total Fleet Solutions and The Miner Corporation join forces

Total Fleet Solutions (“TFS”) and The Miner Corporation (“Miner”) announced that they have merged to form a leading provider of facilities services and asset management solutions for retail, distribution, manufacturing, health care and hospitality companies. The combination of the companies creates the largest one-stop shop for on-site maintenance, on-call repair service, planned maintenance support and lifecycle management solutions for a broad range of assets including material handling equipment, mobile industrial equipment, doors, docks and waste management equipment.  The combined company manages 20,000 pieces of material handling equipment and fields over 40,000 customer calls annually.  Terms of the transaction were not disclosed. Brent Parent, founder and chief executive officer of TFS, who will retain his title in the combined entity, said, “Miner’s service lines are complementary to the services offered by TFS.  Miner’s specialties are emergency repair services and planned maintenance support for doors, docks and waste management equipment, while TFS focuses on procurement, leasing and fleet management for lift trucks. The merger brings the best of both companies to their respective customer bases.  At the core, TFS and Miner have exceptional people who relentlessly serve customers and focus on cost savings for them.”  Phil Miner, Miner’s founder and Chairman, who will remain active in the business and assume the role of vice chairman of the combined company, said, “This combination creates a platform for growth with best-in-class services.  Nearly every manufacturer, distributor and retailer today is exploring the outsourcing of non-core activities in an effort to reduce costs and improve the productivity and safety of their employees.  Our combination of people and intellectual property will further enhance the suite of services we deliver to our customers throughout North America.”
