Dario Diesel Service Inc. celebrated a grand re-opening and official unveiling of its new Volvo and Hino truck dealership after the company’s previous facility was destroyed by a three-alarm fire in July 2016.
The new 24,000 sq.-ft. dealership facility located on Route 20 in Worcester, Mass., features a 12-bay repair garage with heated floors, LED lighting and a heavy-duty chassis dynamometer. The facility also includes a parts retail showroom and parts warehouse, drivers’ lounge and truck sales offices. Rockland Trust provided $2.5 million in funding for the construction, according to an announcement.
“We are immensely grateful to Rockland Trust for helping make our beautiful new facility possible,” says Dario Sabatini Sr., Dario Diesel owner. “You can never predict these kinds of circumstances, and we’re grateful no one was injured in the fire. It’s been a long road to recovery.”
Dario Diesel Truck Center, established in 1959, is a family-owned, full-service dealer for Volvo and Hino trucks and OEM parts. Dario also is a service dealer for Cummins and Caterpillar, providing parts and repair services for a wide-range of makes and models of medium- and heavy-duty trucks.
“Dario Diesel has been a pillar of the community for more than 60 years and we commend their resiliency after the fire,” says Terry Katsaros, Rockland Trust commercial lending officer.
