Andrew Taitz

Andrew Taitz, Founder, Chairman, and CEO

Andrew Taitz is the Founder, Chairman, and CEO of GVW Group, LLC, which encompasses affiliated domestic and international operating companies in the heavy-duty commercial vehicle manufacturing, distribution, engineering and IT industries.

GVW Group continues to seek and invest in new advanced technology opportunities that either support affiliates or would enable penetration of new markets for which GVW Group brings unique value.

Consistent with all of Andrew Taitz’s efforts for almost three decades (including his past investments and dispositions of Workhorse Custom Chassis and Union City Body Co.), GVW Group™ companies seek the best people, who are then empowered to create value for customers – often by doing things differently.

By understanding customers, their markets, and their true drivers of value and sustained competitive advantages, GVW Group companies meet customer needs in ways more fundamental and aligned toward forward-looking growth and profitability.

Mr. Taitz and the GVW Group companies have also been industry leaders in furthering and promoting sustainable, environment-friendly products and services. The GVW Group companies continue to seek and advance such opportunities as core to their key growth initiatives.
