Kriete Group honored for 60 years as Mack dealer

Jan. 16, 2013

The Kriete Group, a Milwaukee, WI-based dealer, was recently honored by Mack Trucks for 60 years of dealer service to the Bulldog.

Kevin Flaherty, president of Mack Trucks North American sales & marketing, and David Barletta, Mack Central Region vice president, hosted Kriete chairman Roger Kriete and CEO and dealer principal David Kriete at a special event at the Mack Customer Center in Allentown, PA.

The Kriete Group was founded in 1951 by Henry Kriete, Roger Kriete’s father.

“Being a Mack dealer brings our family and our employees great pride,” said David Kriete. “We are honored that Mack recognized the 60 years of service that we’ve committed to being a Mack dealer, and we are looking forward to another 60 years.”

The Kriete Group is a family-owned group of heavy and medium-duty truck distributorships that has grown to five locations throughout the state of Wisconsin. The company operates facilities in Fond du Lac, Madison, Green Bay and Racine, in addition to the original Milwaukee dealership as well as a lease and rental organization.

Mack selected the Kriete Group as Mack Distributor of the Year for the Central Region of the U.S. five times during the last 60 years. Mack also twice named Kriete as the Mack Trucks United States Distributor of the Year in 1999 and 2005. 

“Partners like Roger and David Kriete have made Mack one of the most successful truck brands in the market,” Flaherty said. “It was a privilege to honor the Kriete Group, which has been strengthening customer relationships and providing excellent service and support to Mack customers for six decades.”
