McNeilus Reinvents Parts Brands to Better Meet Replacement Parts Needs for All Fleets
Street Smart Parts Gets New Logo, Focuses on Competitor Parts for All Makes and Models
Dodge Center, MN (Jan. 13, 2022) – McNeilus Truck and Manufacturing, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK) company, is repositioning its replacement parts business to offer two distinct options for getting customers the parts they need, when they need them – no matter the makes or models in their fleets.
Street Smart Parts™ and McNeilus® Genuine Parts both offer quality parts, vehicle lifetime support, and 24/7/365 online ordering. The difference: Street Smart Parts provides replacement parts designed to fit all makes and models of concrete mixers and refuse collection vehicles, and McNeilus Genuine Parts provides replacement parts specifically for McNeilus-manufactured vehicles.
McNeilus’ mission is to ensure it keeps customer fleets up and running. Both of these parts brands deliver on that goal, especially at a critical time when supply chain issues can mean that customers may seek to repair, rather than replace, their vehicles.
“Our customers need a partner that can help them keep their business running – without the middleman or the runaround – and they have that in McNeilus,” said Matt McLeish, Vice President of Sales and Marketing-McNeilus Refuse Collection Vehicles.
“And they’re getting full lifecycle support, not just for the McNeilus trucks in their fleet but for their entire fleet, with our two replacement parts brands,” added Peter Gallette, Vice President of Sales and Marketing-McNeilus Mixer Platform.
