CSM Companies, Inc., a network of commercial vehicle and automotive dealerships, announced the acquisition of three Kenworth of Central Florida locations. This acquisition will allow CSM to provide better service to existing customers transporting in Florida, while adding an excellent customer base in Central Florida.
The Tampa and Orlando locations are full-service dealerships with truck sales, parts, service and body shops, while the Lakeland location offers parts and service only.
“Growing the CSM footprint is important, but only if it means that we can serve our customers better, and this acquisition does just that,” said Bill Kozek, CEO of CSM Companies. “Florida is a key region for us, since many of our valued customers have operations in Florida. We’re happy to formally welcome the new staff—and new customers—to the CSM team.”
The acquisition of these dealership locations became official October 31. The three now operate as Orlando Florida Kenworth, Tampa Florida Kenworth, and Lakeland Florida Kenworth as a part of CSM Companies. CSM Companies also has facilities in Wisconsin, Michigan, Nebraska, and South Texas. This acquisition brings its total number of Kenworth locations to 21.
