Our History

Vacuum Truck Services, LLC (VTS) was formed as a Limited Liability Company in January 1998 in Jackson, Mississippi by B.T. Steadman and Payton Lockey in response to the market conditions in the area. Prior to establishing VTS in the environmental service business, B.T. and Payton discovered a market (vacuum truck rental) that was untapped and that appeared to offer tremendous growth potential. Vacuum Truck Rentals, LLC (VTR) began operations in January 2001.

Outstanding growth has led VTR to research further growth expansion opportunities in the Gulf Coast region as well as continued expansion nationally. After several months of careful planning and developing new alliances with manufacturers and customers, VTR had developed a plan for significant growth expansion.

As part of this plan for growth, B.T. and Payton established Vacuum Truck Sales and Service, LLC (VTSS) in 2006 to meet customer demands in the selling and servicing of used vacuum trucks and equipment. VTSS opened its first office in the Baton Rouge, Louisiana area as a central location to best serve the highest metropolitan areas in Louisiana. Being part of this organization gives both companies many valuable resources to ensure its competitiveness and longevity in the municipal, industrial and environmental contractor markets.

VTSS has grown to be recognized as the dominant vacuum and environmental equipment supplier in the state of Louisiana. This leadership was attained through superior merchandising of the finest available products and services in the market it serves. VTSS has partnered with superior companies such as Johnston North America, Ledwell, Madvac / Expolink, Rapidview / IBAK, StoneAge, Vacall and many other premier companies.

VTSS serves customers in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida and Arkansas.
