Mack Dealer Bruckner’s Truck and Equipment becomes certified EV dealer

Mack Trucks announced that Bruckner’s Truck & Equipment in Fort Worth, Texas, is now a Certified Electric Vehicle (EV) Dealer, making this the first Mack dealership to be EV-certified in Texas. The designation means Bruckner’s Fort Worth will now be able to service and support the Mack LR Electric, Mack’s first fully electric Class 8 refuse truck.

Bruckner’s Fort Worth, located at 1200 NE Loop 820, has 22 service bays, two of which are dedicated to electric vehicles. The location has 25 technicians, 12 of whom are master techs, and two of whom are EV-certified. The branch has three full-service field trucks and offers $3 million in parts inventory.

To become EV-certified, dealers must meet numerous stringent safety, charging, tooling, training and infrastructure requirements. The facility also must be upgraded to accommodate electric vehicles. Mack and Bruckner’s met frequently to ensure they met all standards for EV certification.
