Volvo Trucks North America announced that its independent authorized dealer Vanguard Truck Centers recently acquired Nacarato Truck Centers. This acquisition makes it one of Volvo Trucks’ largest dealer groups in North America.
The acquisition expands Vanguard’s presence to 28 Volvo full-service and parts-and-service-only locations across 11 states. Vanguard assumed full ownership of the Nacarato locations, including all existing stock and parts.
Vanguard says it plans to retain all existing Nacarato employees, with CEO Mike Nacarato continuing to lead Nacarato Truck Centers under its existing brand name.
“Over time, the groups will look for ways to leverage the combined scale of our network and strength of our teams to achieve more together for our customers and employees,” said Tom Ewing, president and CEO of Vanguard Truck Centers. “For now, our primary goal is to support the Nacarato team as they continue to grow while providing excellent customer service.”
“This acquisition is not just about numbers – it’s about joining two exemplary dealer groups to implement best practices, bolster synergies and continue growing customer satisfaction, expanding customer access to the seamless support and services they have come to expect from both dealer groups,” said Peter Voorhoeve, president of Volvo Trucks North America.
