About Specialty Transportation: People and Company (STN) is a market research firm dedicated to providing proprietary business analysis to the medium/heavy vehicular, body, engine, equipment, trailer, component and transportation industries worldwide. Our specific niche is the analysis of equipment and body fabrication areas that define the final vocational truck.

STN's publications address the business information needs of executives in strategic, marketing, acquisition/merger and related managerial positions in the above industries, through the development of customized publications or consultation on a project-specific basis. The firm is led by Mr. Brij Madan and is operated by highly qualified principals with outstanding associate and support staff.

Brij Madan is a graduate of the London School of Economics (“LSE”) and of the Graduate Business School at Columbia University, New York, where he received his Masters in Business Administration (“MBA”).

His early work experience was with boutique firms in a thriving European consulting environment, including the business research unit of the famed British political economy magazine “The Economist”. From the London hub he managed global consulting projects serving blue chip clients in the industrial, vehicular, machinery and related industries, in particular leading a pioneering effort to quantify the diesel engine market in every country, resulting in the development of a world-wide industry database. Using this knowledge, a consortium in which he participated executed a Leveraged Buy-out acquisition of a leading diesel engine camshaft manufacturer—that was profitably divested a few years later.

Following on the credentials of this unique combination of analytical and practical experience, he joined Racor Industries in California, a world leader in specialty diesel fuel filtration, as Vice-President of Business Development. Brij assisted in small product acquisitions to add external earnings, as well as in preparing and presenting the company for divestiture to various parties—resulting in the firm being eventually acquired by the U.S. industrial conglomerate, Parker Hannifin Corporation (NYSE:PH).

Brij has overall carried out numerous strategic and business assignments in his area of expertise in global transportation and industrial market segments.

His wide experience has spanned over scores of projects, ranging from extensive market analysis to M & A buy-side work for corporate “bolt-on” acquisitions, as well as sell-side assistance to owners of mid-market companies to divest to large corporations.

Over time his business interests have included a number of entrepreneurial ventures, including high-end market research publications, private asset management for overseas investors, hotel ownership and hospitality management for third party hedge funds and private equity investors. Brij serves as a Director on the board of a number of small and mid-size companies, where his services are valued as Finance, Strategy and Market Planning adviser.

Associate staff are attached to STN for specific work when required. We have an extensive network of senior managers that includes CEOs from top corporate firms in the industry, and dedicated researchers and analysts with many years of experience.

STN's forte is excellent interviewing, research and analysis skills, which are essential for virtually any assignment. Often we are able to solicit difficult information that is not available elsewhere.

For the modest investment put into STN's services, our clients have achieved profit goals and developed strategic direction with a payback of many times the cost of our services.
