Tallman Buys Woodbine Truck Centre
MISSISSAUGA, ON — Tallman Truck Centre has stretched further into the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) with the acquisition of Woodbine Truck Centre, located in Markham.
“This acquisition is consistent with our strategy to grow and expand our dealership service capability throughout the GTA,” says Kevin Tallman, Tallman Truck Centre president.
Tallman has nine full-service dealerships in Ontario, three of which in the GTA. Woodbine Truck Centre will be re-branded as Tallman Truck Centre – Markham and is located at 8240 Woodbine Avenue in Markham. Woodbine is also the Kalmar Ottawa Shunt Tractor distributor for Ontario.
“We are very excited of the addition of the Markham location and we also look forward to representing Kalmar Ottawa Shunt Tractors in Ontario,” Tallman says.
William Galante will serve as general manager of the new Markham facility. Galante has over 30 years of experience in the full service lease and fleet management industry. Before working at Tallman, Galante held management positions with both PHH Arval and Ryder.
