LOUISVILLE, KY – November 26, 2019 – Kentucky Trailer, a subsidiary of Alleghany Capital Corporation, has aligned the brands of its mobile medical subsidiaries, AMST and SMIT, creating a streamlined global presence in the mobile medical market.

The alignment includes a new, joint website for AMST-SMIT, new logos for both companies and a new name for AMST, formerly Advanced Mobility. In addition, a new mobile medical production facility with expanded capacity is under construction in University Park, IL. The new plant will open in Q2 2020.

“We have a global focus and have invested significantly in our mobile solutions to help bring medical care to communities all over the world,” said Kentucky Trailer President and CEO Gary A. Smith, Sr. “By aligning AMST and SMIT under one umbrella, we are unifying our position in the industry and setting ourselves up for continued growth in the mobile medical market.”

Kentucky Trailer acquired Advanced Mobility & Shelter Technologies, LLC, in 2014, including its manufacturing and field service operations. Headquartered in Illinois, AMST designs and builds custom trailers and specialty vehicles for the mobile medical market. The name change from Advanced Mobility to AMST reflects a need to emphasize the company’s expanded global capabilities and avoid confusion with the field of durable medical equipment.

Based in the Netherlands, SMIT Mobile Equipment B.V. is a global provider of specialty trailers and mobile solutions in the medical sector. Kentucky Trailer acquired SMIT B.V., and its service organization SMIT UK, in 2015.

“At AMST-SMIT, our goal is to deliver exceptional quality and service anywhere in the world. This brand alignment will allow us to better serve our partners worldwide, including both original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and mobile medical imaging service providers,” said Bob Bachman, president of AMST-SMIT.

Both AMST and SMIT will maintain their independent manufacturing and field service operations.
