Longtime Mack and Volvo Trucks dealer Nextran Truck Centers has acquired Westfall-O’Dell Truck Sales, making the acquisition one of the largest by a Mack or Volvo Trucks dealer in the past five years.
Established in 1993, Nextran Truck Centers is a full-service commercial truck dealership operating primarily along major highway routes in Alabama, Florida and Georgia.
The acquisition of Kansas City-based Westfall-O’Dell will expand Nextran’s national footprint from three states to seven and grow its Volvo Trucks dealer network to 15, including five new locations in Denver, Colorado; Grand Junction, Colorado; Kansas City, Missouri; Kansas City, Kansas and Cheyenne, Wyoming.
The acquisition adds three Mack locations to the Nextran footprint, bringing Nextran’s Mack facilities total to 20.
The acquisition is part of Nextran’s strategic growth plan, which saw two other acquisitions within the past three years, resulting in the addition of Mack locations in Fort Myers, Florida and Tallahassee, Florida.
“Five years ago, we outlined an ambitious strategic plan that focused on expanding our footprint and facilities, while also investing heavily into our employees, OEM partners and customers. The acquisition of Westfall-O’Dell demonstrates our steadfast commitment toward that goal,” said Jon W. Pritchett, president and CEO of Nextran Truck Centers. “As the top-selling Mack Trucks dealer in North America, we look forward to using our extensive knowledge and expertise to help even more customers across the U.S.”
With the addition of the Westfall locations, Nextran now offers $27.4 million in Mack parts inventory throughout all locations, features 394 service bays and grows its total employee count to more than 1,200, extending its service and support in the Southeast and Midwest convenient to customers.
