International Truck showcased its Diamond Partner Program as well as two International HV Series refuse products, including one painted pink to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research, at the 2019 Waste Expo in Las Vegas.
“We have so many exciting things going on at International Truck, especially with our outstanding, recently refreshed lineup of vocational products,” said David Hillman, general manager, Vocational Trucks, Navistar. “With this new lineup, along with our strong focus on creating mutually beneficial relationships across the industry, International Truck is making great strides in becoming the premier partner for vocational truck owners.”
An International HV 607 was on display, featuring a 25-yard body, a 15,000-pound reeving cylinder, and a third-eye rear vision camera for maximum visibility. To raise awareness of breast cancer research, this vehicle’s cab was painted pink. After the show, 100% of the first month’s rental fee for the vehicle will be donated to a breast cancer awareness foundation.
The second HV 607 on display featured a drop frame body, designed to reduce the loading height for manual collection, and a cab engineered with several DriverFirst features to provide maximum driver comfort.
In addition, International Truck is showcasing its Diamond Partner Program, which was first announced two months ago at the Work Truck Show and already has more than 100 members. The program focuses on building stronger relationships and communication between truck equipment manufacturers (TEMs) and International dealers, and providing TEMs with a wide range of benefits aimed at streamlining installation, offering best-in-class body builder resources and providing spec optimization.
