Gordon Truck Centers (GTC) has recently acquired of the Redding and Eureka Freightliner locations in California. Coupled with the company's acquisition of TrailerCraft/Freightliner of Alaska locations in Anchorage and Fairbanks, Alaska, in April, GTC has now added four stores this year.

With the addition of the Redding and Eureka locations, (GTC) now operates 19 stores across Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Alaska, California, and Hawaii doing business as Freightliner Northwest, Western Star Northwest, TrailerCraft and Freightliner of Hawaii. 

"The acquisition of the assets of Redding Freightliner adds another full-service Freightliner and Western Star dealership to our service center network as well as a parts store in Eureka," says GTC President Scott Gordon. "The territory is contiguous to our existing Pacific Northwest geography and a natural fit. We are excited to welcome the entire Redding Freightliner team to the GTC dealer family. We would also like to thank the Shufelberger family for supporting the commercial trucking industry over the years and congratulate the family on the sale."

The Redding and Eureka locations are doing business as Freightliner Northwest as of July 1, 2023.

Regarding the prior acquisition in Alaska, Gordon says, "We are very excited to welcome the TrailerCraft team to the Gordon Truck Centers dealer family. TrailerCraft has been serving the light and heavy commercial truck industry since 1969. We are honored to carry on the TrailerCraft legacy in the nicest commercial dealership facilities in all of Alaska. Congratulations to Lee and Paulette McKenzie and the whole TrailerCraft team for building such a fantastic company."

Both state-of-the-art Fairbanks and Anchorage locations provide parts and service for light-, medium- and heavy-duty trucks as well as service for buses, Sprinter vans, snowplows, RVs, travel, camper, boat, equipment and utility trailers. The talented technicians at TrailerCraft are factory certified in Freightliner, Detroit, Western Star, Thomas Bus, Sprinter, Cummins, Allison, and SnowEx, GTC says.
