PHOENIX, Ariz. (November 23, 2020) – Strehl, LLC, a leading manufacturer of aerodynamic components for trailers, is pleased to announce it has purchased the assets of Rocketail, LLC. Commenting on today’s announcement, Richard Senatro, President of Strehl, said, “We are extremely pleased to welcome such an outstanding product into our suite of aerodynamic solutions for the trucking industry. Through exhaustive research and determination, the team at Rocketail successfully developed a tail-aero system that finally delivers on the elusive promise of a practical solution for reducing drag at the rear of the trailer. Rocketail will transform the space.”

INTRODUCING FLEETAERO

Strehl will combine its TrailerBlade line with Rocketail and other products in the Strehl pipeline to form FleetAero. As the name implies, FleetAero is comprehensive suite of products designed to optimize aerodynamic performance, thereby reducing fuel costs and lowering carbon emissions. FleetAero products will be offered both as a customized packaged or individual components, according to a fleet’s specific needs and equipment.

“Fleets are much more sophisticated about aerodynamics than they were just five years ago. They want complete, customized solutions that will fit their operations and achieve their goals for both fuel savings and carbon reduction. Consolidating our brands under the FleetAero umbrella reflects our commitment to helping our customers achieve these goals,” added Senatro. “This year has brought tremendous changes. Even more are coming soon.”
