Truck Accessories Group Changes Name to LEER Group

Truck Accessories Group Changes Name to LEER Group | THE SHOPTruck Accessories Group (TAG) will begin operating under the new name, LEER Group, effective immediately, the company announced.

LEER Group is a collection of companies that manufacture fiberglass and aluminum truck caps, tonneau covers and accessories. These recreational and commercial/fleet products include LEER, SnugTop, Century, Pace Edwards by LEER and BEDSLIDE brands.

“As we looked to the future of the company and the industry, it made sense to lead with a brand that has decades-strong recognition among truck owners,” said Peter O’Connell, president of LEER Group. “LEER Group is comprised of some of the most valued brand names in the industry.”

O’Connell added that while the group name is changing, the names of individual brands including LEER, SnugTop, Century, BedSlide and Pace Edwards by LEER would remain. “Together, our brands aim to cover a truck owner’s needs by enhancing the use of the truck and enabling the owner to get the most out of every experience.”

LEER Group is a Business Unit of J.B. Poindexter & Co. (JBPCO), a larger, privately held portfolio of manufacturing businesses that provide transportation goods and services, the company said. J.B.Poindexter & Co. includes brands such as Morgan Truck Body, Masterack, Morgan Olson, Reading Truck Group and the newest JBPCO business unit, EAVX.

“Each of our Business Units is an established leader in their respective markets, and LEER Group is no exception,” said Norb Markert, president and COO, J.B. Poindexter & Company. “With eight manufacturing plants and more than 1,300 independent dealers across North America, LEER Group is well-positioned to continue making a sizable impact on the industry, increase market share, and produce quality accessories that consumers are wanting for their trucks.”
