Navistar: Five dealer network changes ‘will significantly strengthen’ company
Navistar, Inc. announced today that it has made five changes in its dealer network that the company says “will significantly strengthen its already industry-leading distribution and service channel.”
“As conditions in the truck market continue to put more pressure on our customers, we are committed to providing them with North America’s most complete and capable dealer network,” said Jack Allen, president of Navistar’s North American Truck Group. “Through the addition of these five new dealers, we are demonstrating our commitment to bring the best talent available into the International dealer channel. With a growth-oriented business plan, great products and the best after-sales support network, we’ve been able to attract and maintain the best dealers in the industry.”
Through the combination of several dealerships in southern Georgia and West Virginia, the pending ownership change in Utah/Idaho and the addition this week of new dealers in Arizona and Indiana, Navistar is changing the game in its level of distribution and customer support in these markets.
