We will continue to go to market with our existing and well- known brands.

This merger brings together two very strong and successful family organizations sharing the same foundation in the diesel engine business. Our companies have known each other for many years and hold similar values and philosophies including honesty and integrity, excellent customer service, and treating our valued employees with care and respect.
This creates a very exciting opportunity for both companies, our employees, and our customers. It gives us an East Coast marine footprint from NY to South Carolina where we represent MTU and/or Volvo Penta and a seven state, 19 location network to leverage and grow our On-Highway brands and a robust Fleet Management business. Additionally, our MTU Power Generation business will enjoy a 9-state network to service stand-by power generation.
We’re truly excited about this merger of long-standing family businesses and we look forward to being able to service our existing and new customers across an expanded geography with increased resources.
