Velocity Vehicle Group (VVG) announced it has acquired Great West Truck Center in Kingman, Ariz.

VVG says the deal will extend its reach to the intersection of Interstates 40 and 93, positioned midway between VVG’s other locations in Flagstaff, Hesperia and Las Vegas, Ariz., giving service to VVG’s customers in the Southwest. The move also provides VVG access to more than 1,400 potential prospects operating more than 17,000 vehicles within 100 miles, according to RigDig Business Intelligence.

“I am very proud of the organization we have built here in Kingman. I know our customers and employees will continue on with great success under VVG. Great West will continue our endeavors in commercial tires and heavy towing, and I can’t think of a better fit for our organization in terms of the focus on customers and employees that I see at VVG,” says Great West Truck Center’s LaMont Wolsey.

Brad Fauvre and Conan Barker, VVG co-presidents, say, “We are excited to be able to add the Kingman location to our network in the Southwest. We want to thank LaMont for working together with us to acquire Great West Truck Center and we wish him the best in his future endeavors. We look forward to offering the high level of VVG support and service are customers expect in this critical interstate location.”

Scott Zeppenfeldt, VVG senior vice president of operations, adds, “We enthusiastically welcome the Great West employees to the VVG family, and we look forward to implementing our industry-leading processes to support our company’s three pillars of speed, value and trust as we expand our coverage to Kingman, Ariz.”
