The newest location of Portland, Ore.-based TEC Equipment’s network of 26 dealerships is the largest Mack dealership in North America, Mack says. The new TEC location in Fontana, Calif., at 14400 Randall Ave., near the San Bernardino Freeway and across the street from the Auto Club Speedway of California, is a $30 million full-service dealership, well-positioned to serve long-haul customers traveling through southern California.

The 174,000 square-foot facility houses the dealership with shop capacity to service up to 102 trucks and a 2.2-acre parts warehouse that stocks $5.5 million in parts inventory, with an additional 40,000 square feet of mezzanine space available. Customers will find a complete suite of services at the dealership, with teams handling new truck sales, financing and insurance for Mack trucks.The 174,000 square-foot facility houses the dealership with shop capacity to service up to 102 trucks and a 2.2-acre parts warehouse that stocks $5.5 million in parts inventory, with an additional 40,000 square feet of mezzanine space available.

The Fontana dealership is the latest addition to the more than 430 Mack Trucks dealer locations in North America. Since 2010, Mack dealers have invested more than $680 million in facilities, resulting in a 55 percent increase in service bay capacity, 124 percent more technicians, a more than a 65 percent increase in service capacity with 248 percent more master technicians as well.

TEC Equipment Director of Business Development David O. Thompson said that this new facility, five years in the making, will provide the technology, the processes and the capacity to satisfy customer expectations for efficient, quality service. “We are proud to unveil this mega-dealership in Fontana,” Thompson said. “This new dealership serves to strengthen our position as the leading truck dealership in the West, providing quality service and differentiating ourselves with a unique customer experience.”

TEC Equipment’s President and CEO David A. Thompson opened Thompson Equipment Company in Portland, Oregon, in 1976, originally buying and selling used trucks. Now, TEC Equipment employs 1,300 employees serving customers in Washington, Oregon, Nevada, California and Arizona.
