Michigan-based dealer purchases 4 Chicago-area dealerships

Oct. 4, 2012

M&K Quality Truck Sales has become the largest Mack and Volvo truck dealer in the central region after its acquisition of four Chicago-area businesses. M&K has acquired Chicago Mack Sales & Service, Summit, IL; Mack of Joliet, Channahon, IL; Chicago Truck Sales & Service, Alsip, IL; and Truck Lease Chicago, Summit.

“This acquisition creates a terrific market area for our collective customers,” said Ron Meyering, president & CEO of M & K Quality Truck Sales. “We will now be able to provide unparalleled service to customers operating in the upper Midwest.” 

M & K currently has locations in the Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, and Holland, MI, as well as in Indianapolis, IN, and a captive customer shop in Columbus, MS.

Chicago Mack and Chicago Truck offer Mack and Volvo vehicles. Both locations, as well as Mack of Joliet, will also continue to sell and service Hino and Isuzu trucks.

Truck Lease Chicago will join M&K’s NationaLease network, adding 150 trucks to the 350-truck fleet.

“The combined strength of the NationaLease network and our continued membership in the Mack and Volvo Truck Leasing Systems will allow us to improve service for the current Truck Lease Chicago customers and expand the business significantly in the short term,” said Mark Igyarto, vice president of Truck Lease Chicago.

Each entity will continue to operate under its current name and management structure.
