JOST International announced Tuesday its fifth wheels will be available as factory installed options on International trucks manufactured by Navistar effective immediately.
Published JOST data book assemblies will include their cast iron, lightweight, cab actuated release and low lube product offerings, the company says.
JOST says its fifth wheels can now be spec’d as a factory installed option on all major U.S. heavy truck brands.
JOST manufactures fifth wheels for the North American market at their Greeneville, Tenn. facility to OEM standards.
“With JOST now available on a major market share manufacturer in Navistar, this completes the puzzle for making JOST a simple choice for national fleets who want to standardize on JOST throughout their purchases,” Rich Carroll, vice president sales and marketing for JOST says. “For our fleet customers that prefer the International brand, we’re pleased that they now have a seamless, cost effective means of specifying our fifth wheels when they purchase the vehicle.”
