GARY, Ind., Jan. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- TransChicago Truck Group — owned and operated by President and CEO Doug Cayce — has now expanded to three full-service dealerships in the Chicagoland and northern Indiana areas. For more information visit http://www.transchicago.com/
"Expanding into northern Indiana makes perfect sense for us," said Cayce. "Our new Gary location will allow us to better serve our customers more consistently throughout the greater Chicagoland area. Our local customers will have more options for continued support by our truck sales, parts, and service operations, and we are now even better able to assist our on-highway customers with an additional easy-to-access location for parts and service."
TransChicago Truck Group's total number of employees now nears 260. "We are fortunate enough to have been able to keep almost all of Truck City's former employees and look forward to a smooth ownership transition with continued — and expanded — customer service."
The TransChicago Truck Group history began with Northwest Ford Truck Center, where initially Ford and then Sterling Trucks were sold and serviced. In 2002 Cayce expanded further into the medium to heavy truck industry with the purchase of its Elmhurst, Illinois Freightliner, Sterling and Western Star full-service dealership, and then in 2011 expanded to Shorewood, Illinois to better serve all customers based in — or passing through — the Chicagoland area.
TransChicago Truck Group's product portfolio includes Freightliner and Western Star Trucks at all three of its locations. Its Shorewood, IL location also provides Isuzu Truck and Capacity Yard Spotters, and all three locations carry all-makes used trucks and an extensive line of all-makes parts. State-of-the art service is provided by certified technicians, with an ongoing priority for continuing education and re-certification.
"We look forward to bringing the TransChicago tradition to our new location in Gary, Indiana," said Cayce. "In 2014, we grew our parts and service operations in our Shorewood, IL location by tripling the size of that facility and are about to kick off a major renovation to our Elmhurst location with a total overhaul to the entire building, benefiting all departments. Our goal is to provide an exceptionally high level of support to all customers located or traveling throughout Chicagoland. This growth and expansion of our Elite Support certified locations allows us to do just that."
