    Press Release from Lonestar Specialty Vehicles

    On February 9, 2021 Lonestar Specialty Vehicles delivered their fully electric S12 terminal tractor to Southeast Industrial Equipment in Duncan, SC. The deployment of this vehicle was a strategic partnership with Southeast Industrial Equipment providing sales and service support and thyssenkrupp Supply Chain Services operating the vehicle at a large manufacturer in the Greenville-Spartanburg area.

    Lonestar Specialty Vehicles embarked on a mission in 2019 to provide a solution to internal combustion terminal tractors. Observing the amount of downtime customers were encountering with Tier 4 emissions equipment, a solution had to be provided. This was the driving force behind the development of the Lonestar Specialty Vehicle Reman line of electric terminal tractors. Lonestar Specialty Vehicles deployed the first electric T22 November 25, 2019 and continues to be an industry leader in electric terminal tractors.

    “We are excited about this partnership with Southeast Industrial Equipment and thyssenkrupp. Each company brought all of the right pieces to the table to make this happen for our mutual customer. The strategic partnerships with these companies will also allow Lonestar Specialty Vehicles to expand its distribution and service support along the east coast.”, said Blake Yazel, Lonestar Specialty Vehicles General Manager.
