Vactor Introduces TRUVAC Brand

Vactor Manufacturing, Inc. introduced its new, TRUVAC brand of premium vacuum excavator trucks designed specifically to satisfy the safe-digging requirements of businesses or organizations that locate and verify underground utility lines and pipes.

“With more than 19 million miles of buried utilities in the United States alone, the risks of utility strikes caused by poor excavator digging practices are too great to ignore,” said Nick Bruhn, product manager at TRUVAC. “Incidents of gas line explosions, power outages and burst waterlines causing injuries, fatalities and property damage continue to occur at an alarming rate.”

The TRUVAC product line includes the versatile Paradigm sub-compact vacuum excavator, the Prodigy offering power and performance in a smaller footprint, and the HXX series of full-sized vacuum excavators designed to tackle the biggest digging projects.

While TRUVAC focuses on vacuum excavation, the Vactor brand continues to focus on equipment solutions for cleaning and maintaining sewers and catch basins.

“The TRUVAC brand is new, but the products, technology and quality are well-established by the Vactor brand,” said Sam Miceli, vice president and general manager of Vactor Manufacturing, Inc. “Vactor brings more than 100 years of operator-focused innovation excellence, more than 50 years of experience building equipment that combines high-pressure water and vacuum technology, and more than 20 years of experience manufacturing vacuum excavators.”

A carefully selected and expansive network of dealers sell TRUVAC machines across the United States and Canada. Additionally, a team of dedicated, experienced sales managers, product management, service/support personnel and marketing staff is concentrating on the growth, expansion and operations of the brand.

Vactor Manufacturing, Inc., a subsidiary of Federal Signal Corporation, has headquarters and production facilities in Streator, Ill., where TRUVAC machines are built.
