Tampa Truck Center and Fort Myers Freightliner, both wholly owned by Tampa Truck Center LLC, have changed their names to Southport Truck Group, a re-branding that precedes the completion of new 26,000 square foot dealership facility at 16110 Lee Road in Fort Myers and part of a broader growth strategy on the part of the executive team.
“We almost did this 8 years ago when we acquired the Tampa location,” says principal owner Cary Addison. “We thought then, and know now, we don’t want to be constrained by a geographic orientation in our name, and we want our associates and customers to know we’re all on the same team.”
The Fort Myers facility will be the most modern commercial truck dealership in the area consisting of 17 service bays, a 5000 sq. ft. parts warehouse, sales offices and ample parking for tractors, trailers, and RVs. The location is ideally suited with easy access from Interstate 75 via the Alico Road exit and is projected to be fully operational by March 2018.
