Workhorse Group Inc. has engaged Burr Truck and Trailer Sales as its first distribution and service partner in New York state, making it the initial Workhorse dealership in the northeastern United States.
Founded in 1967 and headquartered in Vestal, New York, Burr Truck is a third generation, family-owned commercial truck dealership offering services, sales and leasing of Class 3-8 medium- and heavy-duty trucks.
Workhorse’s partnership with Burr Truck represents a critical step forward in supporting greater access to zero emission transportation technology in an extremely challenging supply chain market.
“As we continue to produce and deliver a growing number of Class 4 and other last-mile delivery products, we are also actively building out our national distribution capabilities,” said Workhorse CEO Rick Dauch. “This partnership with Burr Truck gives us a pivotal foothold in the northeastern U.S. and aligns our sales efforts with an established name brand in the region. We look forward to growing our partnership with Burr Truck as we ramp our production capacity and accelerate vehicle deliveries over the coming months.”
Chuck Burr, President of Burr Truck and Trailer Sales added: “The Workhorse W4 CC and W750 fit well with our current medium and heavy-duty product line, giving our company the opportunity to expand our service offering to a larger demographic in a state that is at the forefront of EV adoption. We look forward to partnering with Workhorse to help drive commercial fleet electrification.”
