Nextran Corp. has purchased Premier Truck Centers, with locations in Birmingham, Tuscumbia and Madison, Ala. The Nextran Truck Center Birmingham business has been moved to the former Premier Birmingham location, which now provides truck sales, parts and service support for Volvo, Mack, Mitsubishi and UD Trucks, as well as being a service provider for GMC medium-duty trucks. The Nextran Truck Center Madison and Tuscumbia dealership locations will continue to sell and support Mack, Volvo and UD Trucks from the former Premier locations in Madison and Tuscumbia.
“I am very proud to add these locations to the Nextran family,” says Jon Pritchett, Nextran president and chief executive officer. “Founded in 1992, we have grown to 14 truck centers located on major routes throughout Florida, Georgia and Alabama. We are delighted T. J. Willings, president of Premier, will continue in the commercial vehicle business with Nextran as vice president of Alabama operations. The former Premier employees joining Nextran will enhance our many years of experience delivering outstanding customer service. They are a welcome addition to the Nextran family.”
