Johnson & Towers / Johnson Truck Center Acquires Dovell & Williams
Johnson & Towers, Inc. is pleased to announce the acquisition of Dovell & Williams with its two dual Isuzu and Mitsubishi Fuso truck dealership locations in Glen Burnie and Frederick MD. This strengthens the industry footprint in the Mid Atlantic region for the JT related companies. Johnson & Towers with its Detroit Diesel and Allison transmission OEM representation has full service shops in Mt. Laurel and Egg Harbor Township, NJ as well as 90,000 square acres under roof in Baltimore, MD. Johnson Truck Center represents Freightliner, Western Star, Autocar and Mitsubishi Fuso out of locations in Landover, MD and Gainesville, MD. When you combine the existing truck sales penetration in the Class 5-8 markets with the introduction of the new Detroit 5 liter mid-range diesel engine, the JT family of companies will provide industry-leading coverage for parts and service.
This new relationship with Dovell & Williams, a company with a similar tradition of providing superior parts and service support for over 75 years, expands the Class 5 coverage for JT. It also meshes nicely with our historic support of Allison transmissions and Detroit engines. JT already has strategic buying relationships with most of the premium suppliers of medium and heavy duty truck parts and components. Leveraging these purchases now across a growing network of 7 locations in NJ, MD and No. VA, positions JT with an impressive inventory and attractive pricing.
JT recently launched a Fleet Services division to offer scheduled mobile PM services as well as more comprehensive maintenance agreements providing customers with KPI reporting, uptime improvement and scheduling efficiency. We are growing our capacity in terms of mobile vehicles, service bays and trained technicians to provide you with the total range of services from vehicle design and procurement, Fleet Maintenance and vehicle disposition.
Johnson and Towers is still the same “Go To” Detroit and Allison resource we have always been, you just don’t have to go anywhere else to get the balance of your vehicle cared for.
