Volvo Trucks announces 2022 Dealer Group of the Year winners

Volvo Trucks announced award winners at the company's annual dinner in Las Vegas.

Volvo Trucks North America named two of its dealers as U.S. and Canada Dealer Groups of the Year. Massachusetts-based Ballard Truck Center was named the 2022 U.S. Dealer Group of the Year and Sheehan’s Truck Centre in Ontario was named the 2022 Canadian Dealer Group of the Year. The award recognizes exemplary performance across several key areas, including reaching sales targets, business growth, and customer satisfaction, the company says.   

Sheehan’s Truck Centre was founded in 1989 by Pat and Gayle Sheehan. Pat was a former truck driver and is considered a true trucking ambassador in the industry, the company says. Their children, Kelly and Dennis, took over the dealership in 2000, growing it into one of the largest used truck dealers in Canada, the company says. The Sheehan’s chose to locate the dealership’s headquarters in Burlington, Ontario to serve the Toronto market and purchased Beaver Truck Centre in 2017 to add facilities in Winnipeg and Brandon, Manitoba. The dealership was a 2020 Volvo Trucks North America Used Truck Dealer Group of the Year award winner and continues to make investments in state-of-the-art facilities and services, the company says.

Ballard Truck Center is a fifth-generation family-owned business operated by co-owners John Picking and Steven Grahn and headquartered in Avon, Massachusetts, located to support and service customers in the Boston market and throughout the Northeast from its seven locations, spanning three states. Ballard Truck Center was awarded top U.S. dealer in Customer Satisfaction in 2019 and recently became the first Volvo Truck Certified Electric Vehicle Dealer in Massachusetts at its Tewksbury location. 

The Dealer Group of the Year Award winners were announced at Volvo Trucks’ recent annual awards dinner in Las Vegas. 

Volvo Trucks’ 2022 Regional Dealer Group of the Year Awards recipients include: 

  • Central Region: Gateway Truck & Refrigeration, Inc. 
  • Northeast Region: Ballard Truck Center 
  • Southeast Region: Action Truck Center 
  • Southwest Region: Bruckner’s Truck & Equipment
