ELKHART, Ind., March 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- NTEA Work Truck Show -- Booth #1811 -- Truck Accessories Group, LLC (TAG) extends its lead as the fleet industry's most innovative and expansive manufacturer of caps and covers for national and regional fleets. Whether it's specialized utility bed covers from Pace Edwards or the proven line of LEER® caps, the TAG consortium of companies delivers the aesthetics, fuel-cost reductions, durability and performance fleet customers value.

Manufactured in plants throughout the U.S., Pace Edwards and LEER covers meet exacting fleet standards. Customization is a hallmark of the LEER line of fleet products. Buyers are able to specify caps and tonneaus that fit their specific requirements, and have the same product built under demanding specifications at three different locations. Multi-location manufacturing makes TAG uniquely able to fabricate custom-order products, and deliver them more quickly and at less cost than any other company.

On display at this year's NTEA Work Truck Show are:

180CC Fiberglass Cap from LEER

The LEER 180CC fiberglass cap, mounted on a 2015 Chevy Canyon, is designed to enclose approximately 20% more interior space than traditional cab-high caps. The added space delivers extra room for more cargo, translating into fewer trips and lower fuel costs, ultimately contributing to the bottom line. The aerodynamic shape of the 180CC cuts through the wind far more efficiently than traditional truck caps, reducing the coefficient of drag, a key component of highway fuel mileage.


The LEER DCC cap, displayed on a 2015 Ford F-150, is built with strong, lightweight TIG-welded aluminum frames and tough .035 aluminum exteriors, making it one of the most durable work caps on the market. The DCC cap comes in three configurations: 1) a cab-high model matching the height of the truck's cab; 2) a wedge, offering additional capacity ranging from 20" to a full 36"; 3) a high-rise version with 30" and 36" capacity to accommodate large loads.

Retractable Utility Bed Cover from Pace Edwards

The Retractable Utility Bed Cover (RUBC) from Pace Edwards is a workhorse in the service industry. Available in both manual and electric-powered models, the RUBC is a lightweight, hard tonneau delivering secure, convenient storage for tools and a wide variety of equipment. To maximize access to the truck bed, the cover retracts into a front canister. The cover fits most 8-foot and 9-foot pickup models, with longer lengths available.

"TAG's dedicated fleet manufacturing, sales and support teams are proving to customers around the country that we have the product and uncompromising service standards they can absolutely rely on," said Jim Blayne, director of fleet sales, TAG Commercial Division. "We're unequivocally demonstrating our value as a long-term partner to regional and national fleet managers."

As the company anticipated, national operators in growing vertical markets are leading the way in terms of adoption of new TAG products. Freeway maintenance, pest control and telecommunications are three of the business sectors that have enthusiastically adopted products from one of the TAG brands.

TAG complements its extensive lines of fleet caps and covers with premium accessories. The slide-out Bedslide bed storage platform can handle up to 2,000 pounds of equipment. The Bedslide's poly-coated deck won't absorb oils or fluids and is fully adjustable. TAG also offers the DECKED floor-mounted system with pull-out drawers for organizing tools and equipment.
