March 26, 2012: Universal Truck and Trailer Awarded Mitsubishi Fuso Dealership for New Brunswick
Universal Truck and Trailer (UTT) is pleased to announce that it has been appointed the authorized dealer of Mitsubishi Fuso trucks in New Brunswick. As the largest truck and trailer dealership in the region, UTT offers a new product with the sales and service of the full line of Mitsubishi Fuso medium-duty cabover work trucks.
The Mitsubishi Fuso line is targeted at the 17,995 GVW and under market and is a segment not currently serviced by UTT today at their operations in Dieppe or Quispamsis. “Our experienced staff offers exceptional sales and service to our customers,” said Andrew Fisher, General Manager of UTT. “They are looking forward to serving a new customer base with the new line of Mitsubishi Fuso trucks,” Fisher said. "The first product will be on the lots and available for sale in late April; but orders can be taken immediately, and trucks can be sourced for customers through leveraging our relationships with partner dealerships." With 38 service bays, 41 truck and trailer technicians and apprentices, and hours of operation from Monday to Saturday, the UTT facilities offer exceptional support to our customers, who we know depend on us to keep them operating.
“The addition of the Mitsubishi Fuso truck line will help to further strengthen our presence by expanding our product line to our customers throughout Atlantic Canada,” said Wayne Power, Vice President of UTT. “We are proud to be part of the Mitsubishi Fuso family as we continue to build our business with solid brands like Freightliner, Western Star, and Great Dane.”
For Mitsubishi Fuso, this is an important expansion of their dealer network. “We welcome UTT to our dealer group,” said Mike Rumsey, Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America Vice President, Sales Operations. “They offer the service and expertise our customers expect from our dealers, and they’re positioned to help us increase our penetration of Atlantic Canada.”
