Utility trucks: Fontaine Modification, a North American provider of truck modification services for OEMs, dealers and fleets, has established two new business units: Fontaine Modification Fleet Services and Fontaine Modification Vocational Services. The move is designed to enable Fontaine Modification to respond more nimbly to its customers’ needs in these key market segments.

“We strive to provide outstanding service to our customers,” says Paul Kokalis, Fontaine Modification president. “By separating the two sides of the business, we sharpen our focus on each distinct market and provide tailored solutions more efficiently to all of our customers. Our fleet and vocational customers have unique engineering, product, and support needs, which we will focus on with greater effectiveness.”

Fontaine Modification Fleet Services will handle all on-highway truck modifications to ensure trucks are “road ready” to the fleet’s exact requirements. Jamil Young, as President ­ Fontaine Fleet Services, will lead the business unit. He joined Fontaine Modification in 2009 and most recently served as Fontaine Modification vice president and general manager of southern region operations. He also has served as senior operations manager and as general manager of Fontaine’s Garland, Texas, modification center.

Fontaine Modification Vocational Services will provide specifically engineered modifications required by customers in markets such as auto transport, street sweeping and refuse. Steve Boyer will lead the business unit as President ­ Fontaine Vocational Services. He was formerly vice president of new product development and executive vice president of sales for Fontaine Modification. He also has been with Fontaine since 2009.

“Establishing Fontaine Modification’s new business units is made easier because we have excellent, experienced individuals capable of running each new business,” says Kokalis. “Jamil’s focus on customer service in the southern region makes him ideally suited to head up Fontaine Fleet Services, and his experience in setting up our inline processes is an outstanding asset. At Fontaine Vocational Services, Steve’s extensive engineering experience makes him uniquely qualified to take the lead. He has a deep understanding of the needs of the various vocational segments we serve.”

The two new business units became operational on Jan. 1.
