M&K adds 9 dealerships
M&K Truck Centers of Byron Center, Mich., has purchased nine dealerships, an e-commerce parts sales operation, and a fire and rescue products company, the firm announced recently.
M&K employs more than 900 people across 29 locations in Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
All of the new dealerships and business operations were previously owned by Legacy Truck Centers. The acquisition was completed Dec. 31, 2021, and expands the company’s footprint to 29 locations in five states, according to the company.
M&K will offer Mack, Volvo and Isuzu products and all support services out of the new Pennsylvania locations in Altoona, Bedford, Brookville, Erie, Harrisburg, Milesburg, New Stanton and Somerset. Products and services also will be offered at the Wheeling, W.V., location.
The e-commerce operation comes with an online parts sales presence via the www.class8truckparts.com website. The Fire and Rescue Products Company (FRP) sells KME Fire Trucks in addition to clothing products for firefighters, breathing apparatuses, and emergency extraction tools.
M&K Truck Centers kept nearly all Legacy Truck Centers employees, including the previous owners, Matt Niebauer and John Niebauer.
“Our leadership team is thrilled to welcome both Matt and John to the M&K family in addition to more than 200 talented new employees, and we look forward to an exciting 2022 as we work together to integrate these operations,’’ said Ron Meyering, M&K’s chief executive. “We are focused on ensuring all our customers’ needs are met and providing excellent customer service throughout the transition and for many years to come.’’
M&K Truck Centers, founded 32 years ago, has a long history as a dealer of Mack, Volvo and Isuzu Trucks, company officials said.
“From preventative maintenance to major repairs, M&K has the experience, technicians, capacity and parts to keep trucks on the road,’’ the company said in a press release.
