New Way Trucks Announces Appointment of Iser Equipment as its Ohio Market Area Distributor Partner


Scranton, IA - New Way Trucks, the largest privately held refuse equipment manufacturer in North America, has a reputation of partnering with the strongest distributors in the solid waste industry. With industry leading products like Sidewinder, the most popular automated side loader, and its Cobra/Viper line of best-selling medium duty rear loaders, New Way leads the pack with product adoption and innovation. It’s the New Way distributor network that is the final key to success.

Building on that foundation, New Way is pleased to announce the appointment of Iser Equipment – a new business entity founded by Josh and Katie Iser – as its exclusive distributor partner for the state of Ohio. The Iser Equipment sales team has a combined 50 years of refuse equipment experience within the state of Ohio, including 8 years of direct representation of the New Way Trucks brand.

“We are grateful to Josh for his years at New Way developing the Ohio market area and are pleased to be partnering with his new company to continue to offer New Way and K-PAC products to our existing and new Ohio customers,” said Don Ross, New Way’s Chief Sales Officer.

Josh Iser has 20 years’ experience in the waste and recycling equipment industry including warehouse management and aftermarket parts sales, territory sales management and distributor development in a combined total of 28 states. Iser most recently served as a Regional Sales Manager for New Way Trucks. “Our industry experience allows us to offer a complete portfolio of refuse industry-related products,” said Josh Iser, Iser Equipment President, “while our existing customer relationships will streamline our path to success for not only our company, but for New Way as well.”

“Josh has done excellent work for us at New Way, and I couldn’t be happier to support him and Katie’s new business venture with the distributorship,” said Mike McLaughlin, New Way CEO. “As much as we are sorry to see Josh leave the company, we know that he will still be part of the New Way family as our new Ohio distributor.” Iser Equipment of Lancaster, OH will assume responsibility for New Way’s Ohio market area effective January 1, 2024.
