Specific Item Information: FLEXI-VAN 40' Container Chassis 2-Packs: #1010, #1011
New Jersey-based Flexi-Van is the preeminent container chassis lessor in North America. With the acquisition of the marine chassis fleet of TIP (a GE Capital company) in 2002 and the chassis fleet of XTRA in 2004, the Flexi-Van fleet swelled to a whopping 157,000 chassis!
These lease fleets permit shipping lines to concentrate on the shipping and leave the chassis management to someone else.

Road Name History:
FlexiVan has been the premier intermodal chassis lessor since it was established in 1955. Recognized for dependability and great service to its customer base, the company also has a proven track record of profitable and stable operations. Headquartered in Kenilworth, New Jersey, FlexiVan is an affiliate of Castle & Cooke, Inc. and sister company to Dole Food Company.
After over 60 years of service, FlexiVan is one of the largest chassis providers in North America with a current fleet of approximately 125,000 units. FlexiVan currently employs more than 250 associates at 12 locations in North America.

Brand/Importer Information:
DeLuxe Innovations is a "wholesale manufacturer" of model trains. We manufacture scale replica train models and sell them to hobby shops and distributors worldwide. 2013 marked the 20 year anniversary of DeLuxe Innovations brand trains. There are over 25 body styles in our product line and all of the cars in our single and multi-car packs have different road numbers. DeLuxe Innovations, Inc. is owned by Dave Ferrari, founder of Squeak N Products. We are located in Midland Park, New Jersey. When Dave purchased the business it was located in Burbank, California which would have been a bit of a long commute so the move to the East Coast was planned. Our first East Coast location was in Whippany, NJ along the Whippany River.

The business was started in 1993 by George Johnsen and Roberta Liebreich in Burbank, California. They had a philosophy that just wouldn't allow using a coal car as a "stand in" for a woodchip car, or printing any and all boxcar paint schemes on a PS-1. Starting with the release of the first ever etched metal parts for a ready to run car (1994's Twinstack's metal walkways) through the full dimension underframe and etched metal roofwalk (1996's 1944 AAR Boxcar) to the challenging RoadRailer system (2000), our products have been accurate to target the modeler or enthusiast.
