MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Tallman Group has announced it has acquired Tru-Nor Truck Centres, with locations in Sudbury, Timmins and Sault Ste. Marie.
The deal closed Aug. 1. The Truck-Nor Truck Centres International dealers have been in business for more than 25 years.
“This acquisition aligns with our strategy to grow and expand our geographic footprint throughout Ontario. With the addition of three dealerships in Northern Ontario we now offer customer support from a total of 14 locations and eight associate stores. We are very pleased to be adding such a highly regarded dealership group as Tru-Nor Truck Centres to Tallman Group,” said Kevin G. Tallman, president of Tallman Group.
“We wanted to find the best possible company to carry our business succession forward. It was important that we found a company who shared the same values and beliefs from an employee and customer standpoint and we feel very strongly that Tallman Group is a great fit. We look forward to the many value-added services that Tallman Group can bring to our customer base here in Northern Ontario,” added Terry Descoteaux, general manager of Tru-Nor Truck Centres.
Descoteaux has been named vice-president of Tru-Nor Truck Centres, which will continue to operate under that name as a wholly owned subsidiary of Tallman Truck Centre.
