Custom Truck One Source Featured on AMC's NewsWatch TV Program

February 27, 2019 - Custom Truck One Source (Custom Truck), Kansas City, Missouri, and its wholly-owned subsidiary Load King were featured on February 25, 2019, on an episode of NewsWatch, a nationally televised weekly program on the AMC Network.  

Custom Truck’s unique, single-source equipment offerings and Load King’s recent expansion of its manufacturing portfolio made the companies of interest to the consumer-oriented television program. 

The segment featured footage of Custom Truck’s Kansas City headquarters and an interview with Fred Ross, Custom Truck’s chief executive officer.  

While Ross’ commentary touched on several important aspects of the industry, he focused specifically on how Custom Truck and Load King are American brands: domestic manufacturing, in-house upfits, expanded American employment, and products designed specifically to maintain our country’s infrastructure. 

The episode aired February 25, 2019, on the 6:00 a.m. CDT NewsWatch segment on the AMC Network. It will also run on future airings of the show. The spotlight is also available on the Custom Truck and Load King websites, social media profiles, and Youtube channel.
