Belgrade truck company rolling out mobile COVID-19 vaccination trailers

BELGRADE, Mont. – Acela Truck Company went from building fire trucks, to mobile morgue units and now custom-built trailers to help in the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines in the country.

David Ronsen, president of Acela, said the truck manufacturer is a combination of two older truck companies in the Gallatin Valley but started under their current name Acela four years ago.

The niche for their sales is bringing military type vehicles and turning them into emergency and commercial trucking uses and started receiving government requests for specialty trailers.
