M&K Truck Centers has announced continued growth in the Midwest with the planned acquisition of three Mack and Volvo dealerships.
The soon-to-be acquired locations have operated as family owned dealerships by Pozzo Truck Center for 97 years. The Pozzo locations M&K will acquire are in Chicago Heights, Ill., and Gary and South Bend, Ind., increasing M&K’s footprint to 21 locations in four states: Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
Additionally, M&K Truck Centers is expanding at current facilities. In Scranton, Pa., a 15,000 sq.-ft. addition is in progress and in Romulus, Mich., a new 60,000 sq.-ft. facility is under construction.
The expansion through the Pozzo Truck Center acquisitions will be beneficial to customers as M&K Truck Centers will provide resources for parts, service, rentals and leasing service from the Canadian border in Michigan through Indiana and the Chicago market. M&K has executed four other acquisitions in 2018 — two in Pennsylvania and two in Michigan — bringing this year’s acquisition total to seven new locations, according to the company.
Professionally trained staff, including diesel mechanics, parts specialists and salespeople will be retained. With the Illinois and Indiana acquisitions, M&K now employs more than 900 people, including over 300 trained technicians available for service at 350 service bays.
Completion of the acquisition is scheduled for Dec. 3, 2018. At that time M&K Truck Centers will begin operations at 94 E. Sauk Trail, South Chicago Heights, Ill. (Mack sales, parts and service), 3001 E. 15th Place, Gary, Ind. (Mack and Volvo sales, parts and service) and at 3152 Mary Court, South Bend, Ind. (Mack and Volvo sales, parts and service). In addition to truck sales, parts and service, M&K will offer rental and leasing options at these locations.
“M&K Truck Centers is honored to represent Mack trucks and Volvo trucks in these additional Illinois and Indiana markets. We look forward to providing Pozzo customers with exceptional customer service and are committed to industry best practices,” says M&K President Ted Pilecki.
