With the addition of Action, the number of Reading's distribution and upfitting sites increases to 12 facilities nationwide.
"We are excited to acquire the strategic assets of Action, which will further Reading's goal to establish a national organization for growth. The addition of these new capabilities and location will expand Reading's presence in the South East region of the country and broaden its product offering," said Alan Farash, president of Reading Truck Group.
In addition to expanding Reading's national footprint and product portfolio, the acquisition of Action also increases Reading's chassis pool allocation and produces a wide range of logistical service and freight benefits for Reading customers in the region.
