(PRWEB) December 18, 2017
Tampa Truck Center and Fort Myers Freightliner, both wholly owned by Tampa Truck Center LLC, have united under a common brand name—Southport Truck Group. This re-branding precedes the completion of new 26,000 square foot dealership facility at 16110 Lee Road in Fort Myers and is part of a broader growth strategy on the part of the executive team.
Principal owner, Cary Addison puts it this way, “We almost did this 8 years ago when we acquired the Tampa location. We thought then, and know now, we don’t want to be constrained by a geographic orientation in our name, and we want our associates and customers to know we’re all on the same team.”
The Fort Myers facility represents a significant commitment to the commercial truck & RV customers of Southwest Florida. It will be the most modern commercial truck dealership in the area consisting of 17 service bays, a 5000 sq ft parts warehouse, sales offices, and ample parking for tractors, trailers, and RVs. The location is ideally suited with easy access from Interstate 75 via the Alico Road exit. It is projected to be fully operational by March 2018.
Mr. Addison explains, “Southport Truck Group will allow us to continue our growth strategy under a unified name. We are always looking for opportunities to expand and improve our ability to serve commercial truck and RV users.”
