Volvo Trucks Dealer Group Vanguard acquires Advantage Truck Centers

Volvo Trucks North America announces Vanguard Truck Centers, a multi-regional, full-service commercial truck dealer group and leasing operation, has acquired Charlotte-based Advantage Truck Centers and Advantage Truck Leasing. Vanguard Truck Centers is one of Volvo Truck’s leading sales and leasing dealer groups, Volvo says, with locations in Georgia, South Carolina, Texas and Arizona. The acquisition of Advantage expands Vanguard’s authorized Volvo Trucks dealership footprint from 20 to 23 locations, adding three Volvo locations in North Carolina, including sales and service operations in Charlotte, Greensboro and Hickory. The expanded group now has approximately 900 employees, a total of 360 dedicated Volvo Trucks service bays, an extensive parts inventory and is one of the largest leasing operations in the Volvo Trucks dealer network, Volvo says.

Vanguard was founded in 1989, acquiring its first Volvo Trucks dealership in Atlanta in 1994.

Founded in Charlotte in 1995, Advantage is a highly respected Volvo Trucks dealer group that built a consistent track record of growth and success in the Southeast region. Last year, Volvo Trucks recognized Advantage as the 2020 Volvo Trucks North American Dealer of the Year.
