TransEdge Truck Centers Celebrates 25 Years of Selling Mack Trucks

TransEdge Truck Centers, one of the largest Mack dealers in the Northeast and winner of many awards for excellence, will celebrate 25 years of operation Aug. 25 with an open house at its flagship location in Allentown, Pa. The dealer also has operations in Pittsburgh, Blue Mountain, and Stroudsburg, Pa.

“Customers know they can rely on TransEdge to provide the best truck for their needs as well as exceptional service and support after the sale,” said Stephen Roy, president of Mack Trucks North America. “Mack Trucks is proud to join TransEdge in celebrating this milestone.”

TransEdge opened in 1990 when current owners Bob and Judy Dwyer, along with three other partners, purchased the company-owned Mack dealership in Allentown. Bob Dwyer had worked for Mack Trucks since 1978 and previously served as branch manager at the Allentown facility before the purchase. Mack Trucks has operated an Allentown dealership since the 1920s.

In 2014, TransEdge was named the Mack Leasing Dealer of the Year and also received the Mack Trucks 500 Group recognition and the Born Ready Award, recognizing the dealer most committed to the brand’s strategy. TransEdge was also the Mack Dealer of the Year for North America in 2011 and earned the Parts Dealer of the Year Award for North America in 2007.

At the open house event, which will be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 25customers can test-drive a Mack Pinnacle daycab and sleeper — both equipped with the Mack mDRIVE automated manual transmission — and a Mack Granite tri-axle dump truck equipped with the mDRIVE HD.

The complete lineup of current Mack trucks will be on display, along with several antique models. Mack Trucks executives will be available to meet customers throughout the day, and a representative from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation will provide safety training covering the essentials of passing safety inspections and how to appeal a violation. Visitors can also tour the facility and register for door prizes.

In addition to offering new and used Mack trucks for sale, TransEdge has a complete service department, a vehicle modification center, a full parts department and a full service truck leasing department which was recently renamed TransEdge Leasing Group. The six-acre Allentown facility, located at 1407 Bulldog Drive, has a 26,000 square-foot shop with 18 service bays and 35 technicians.
