STREATOR, Ill. (Feb. 11, 2016) – Vactor Manufacturing and parent company Federal Signal Corporation recently announced the acquisition of Westech Vac Systems, Ltd., a leading provider of rugged, high-quality vacuum truck-mounted solutions.
The acquisition helps to bring about technology and innovation that can be leveraged by Federal Signal’sEnvironmental Solutions Group in both the U.S. and Canadian markets. As a Federal Signal subsidiary, Westech will continue to operate in Nisku, Alberta, Canada, as Westech Vac Systems.
Engineered for a variety of industries and uses, Westech’s Hydrovac excavation truck is specified with a TC407 rating (hazardous goods transport capable).
The Vactor HXX HydroExcavator provides up to seven hours of continuous operation with the on-board water. The standard variable flow water systems allow lower water flow, resulting in less operator fatigue and a cleaner, more precise digging process. The systems also allow for up to 25 gpm for those projects requiring higher water flow capabilities.
