"My vision for Bruckner Truck Sales is that we are a 'gritty' organization with a lot of 'gritty' people on our team. Often, we are faced with great challenges and difficulties, but people with character have the will to meet the challenge and overcome it," says Brian Buckner, president. "Grit is a description that fit my grandfather and my father very well. Not to mention that they were both passion and perseverance." 

Buckner represents Volvo and Mack Trucks in eight states.
