Wastequip acquires Wastebuilt Environmental Solutions

Deal expands parts catalog and service offering in key geographic areas.


Wastequip, Charlotte, North Carolina, has acquired Wastebuilt Environmental Solutions LLC (Wastebuilt), a provider of parts, equipment and services for refuse and specialty fleet applications.

Based in Bolingbrook, Illinois, Wastebuilt operates 12 facilities in major metropolitan areas throughout the U.S. and provides parts for refuse bodies, chassis, containers, hoses and fittings. Going forward, Wastequip’s Go To Parts brand will be discontinued and will operate under the Wastebuilt brand.

Wastebuilt will continue to operate as its own entity, with personnel reporting to Chris Nicolazzo. Nicolazzo, who previously served as Wastequip’s vice president of operations for tarps and parts, has now been named president of tarps and parts.

According to the company, the acquisition of Wastebuilt broadens Wastequip’s parts catalog, technical support and distribution in markets across the U.S. It also expands its parts coverage nationwide and across six parts families: refuse bodies; fluid conveyance; containers; chassis; maintenance, operation and repair, and safety and automated side loader arms. Additional Wastebuilt offerings include a refurbishment program for automated side loader arms. The combination of Wastebuilt’s parts catalog, expertise and distribution infrastructure with Wastequip’s financial strength, sales and marketing expertise will further market leadership and service and product offerings for its customers, Wastequips says.

“We are excited to welcome the Wastebuilt team to the Wastequip family of brands,” Marty Bryant, CEO of Wastequip, says. “The addition of Wastebuilt aligns with our strategy of pairing the industry’s top brands—like Galbreath, Amrep, Pioneer and Toter—with an expanded parts catalog and distribution network to provide a one-stop shop for the waste industry. Strengthening our parts offering, along with the continued expansion of our Wastequip WRX service network, provides customers with a single, convenient and reliable source from equipment to parts to service.”
