American Trailer Rental Group

Leading provider of short-term trailer rentals for storage, cartage and over the road applications

American Trailer Rental Group (“ATRG” or the “Company”) is a Kentucky-based leading provider of trailer rental solutions to manufacturing, distribution and 3PL customers. The Company owns and manages a fleet of over 16,000 units including dry van trailers, containers, flatbeds, and chassis, operating via 19 branches throughout the Midwest, South and Southwest U.S. ATRG goes to market under five distinct brands, including Meisler, FITS, Fleet, Advantage, and Arizona Storage, providing customers with flexible trailer rental solutions to help manage inventory, reduce storage costs, and drive efficiencies across supply chains.

Wind Point acquired ATRG in June 2021. Our value creation plan focuses on building ATRG’s dry van trailer fleet, branching out into new markets via greenfields, and executing against a robust M&A program to develop a national provider of trailer rental services.

Wind Point acquired ATRG in partnership with incumbent management, led by CEO John Brooks. Mr. Brooks joined ATRG in 2017 and brings a wealth of experience in the equipment rental sector. Most recently, Mr. Brooks served as CFO of Nesco Specialty Rentals, a PE-backed rental provider of specialty equipment to the electric utility, telecom, and rail industries. Prior to Nesco, Mr. Brooks served as CFO of SENCO, a designer, manufacturer, and marketer of branded fastening tools, and as CFO of Kuhlman Electric, a manufacturer of high-quality transformers for the industrial and electric utility sectors. 

Wind Point also partnered with six executives who helped evaluate the business and have since joined the Board. Those executives include Tracy Leinbach and Greg Muldoon, both of whom are Wind Point Executive Advisor Partners (“EAPs”) and involved across several current and former Wind Point investments, as well as Kevin Shuba, Paul Svindland, Mark Holden and Jim Martell. The group brings more than 100 years of relevant industry experience to the ATRG partnership, including entrepreneurial, C-Suite and Board level roles held across various public and private organizations in the transportation, logistics, and route-based industries. Ms. Leinbach will serve as Board Chair and brings over 30 years of experience in the transportation and logistics industry, most recently as Executive Vice President of Fleet Management and CFO at Ryder Systems (NYSE: R), North America’s largest provider of fleet management and logistics solutions.
