Fontaine Fifth Wheel to be Standard on All Summit Stock Orders
December 20, 2017 – Summit Truck Group is pleased to announce that they have entered into a strategic partnership with Fontaine Fifth Wheel. Fontaine is now Summit Truck Group’s preferred vendor for fifth wheels for all new, stock units ordered by Summit. As a priority customer of Fontaine, Summit will receive prioritized parts and service support, along with training for Summit’s dealership technicians and technicians employed by Summit’s end customers. For Fontaine, this partnership will expand their sales footprint into the areas in which Summit operates.
Summit and Fontaine are like-minded in their efforts to provide 100% uptime to their customers, and this partnership will strengthen each company’s relationships with those customers. “Fontaine has a strong reputation for providing a high level of customer service,” said Steve Dupuis, Summit Chief Operating Office. “They take care of their customers the way we strive to take care of ours — by fixing the customers’ vehicles and getting them back out on the road as quickly as possible. We are excited to join with Fontaine to provide our customers with a quality product backed by great customer service.”
