CSM Companies Inc. acquires three Florida Kenworth locations

CSM Companies Inc., a network of commercial vehicle and automotive dealerships, has acquired three Kenworth of Central Florida locations.

This acquisition will allow CSM to provide better service to existing customers transporting in Florida, the company says. These locations will be renamed “Florida Kenworth” effective immediately.

The Tampa and Orlando locations are full-service dealerships with truck sales, parts, service and body shops, while the Lakeland location offers parts and service only.

The acquisition of these dealership locations became official on October 31. All three now operate as a part of CSM Companies. CSM Companies also has facilities in Wisconsin, Michigan, Nebraska, and South Texas. This acquisition brings their total number of Kenworth locations to 21.
