Brink's and Navistar International Corporation Celebrate 100 Years of Business Together
Companies Meet in Chicago to Commemorate Historic Partnership and
Announce New Hybrid Armored Truck
Brink's and Navistar, Inc., announced the 100th anniversary
of their business partnership. Both industry-leaders in their markets,
the two companies hosted a celebratory event last week at the Brink's
Museum in Chicago to honor their working relationship and longevity.
Brink's and Navistar credit this successful partnership to a foundation
of trust and innovation. The companies have worked side-by-side to
develop the state-of-the-art International® DuraStar® hybrid armored
truck, designed specifically to reduce emissions and improve fuel
efficiency in an ongoing commitment to the green initiative.
"This momentous event is as much about history as it is about the
companies. It reflects the entrepreneurial spirit of drive and
determination," said President of Brink's U.S. and Executive Vice
President North America, Lawrence (Larry) F. Rodo. "At the end of the
day, our companies possess specialized expertise that can easily be
leveraged into value. In turn, we deliver that value to our people and
to our customers. A true testament is the introduction of the hybrid
With Navistar's diesel fuel hybrid technology, Brink's can achieve its
green initiative goals by improving uptime, reducing operational costs
and providing a cleaner environment.
Features of the International DuraStar hybrid truck include: 65%
reduction in hydrocarbon emissions, 58% reduction in carbon monoxide and
41% reduction in nitrogen oxide emissions; up to 60% improvement in fuel
economy compared to traditional diesel engines; and, reduced noise
pollution with an optional electronic power take-off, which keeps the
engine off during stationary work.
"Our strategic partnership makes both companies stronger in the
long-run," said Rodo. "When you compare Brink's and Navistar, our core
values are virtually identical. Terms like integrity, professionalism
and innovative thinking are the very backbone of our organizations.
Ultimately, we work together to ensure our customers receive integrated,
best-in-class transportation and secure solutions."
The first Brink's hybrid truck will be released in Los Angeles, CA, and
then will be distributed throughout the United States.
"Our partnership with Brink's has remained a success because we share
the same vision," adds Dan Ustian, President, Chairman and Chief
Executive Office, Navistar. "We capitalize on the strengths of each
other, and leverage our complementary skill set to add value and to
achieve synergy. More than 100 years ago, the right foundation was laid.
Today as we celebrate our meaningful partnership, and in the years to
come, we will focus on the most valuable initiatives that support our
customers, our people and our companies."
