Pozzo Truck Center Inc. recently achieved a milestone in its history of serving Mack customers as it celebrated its 95th year as a Mack Trucks dealer, the truck maker said. Founded in 1921 by William Pozzo Sr., the business was opened after a Mack parts and repair facility in Gary, Indiana, closed. Pozzo, an Italian immigrant who was a mechanic at the facility and also raced with the Fiat team at the Indianapolis 500, built a new building for his new business and financed it through the sale of bonds, Mack said. “Mack is synonymous with tough, reliable trucks and integrated powertrains,” Jud Salmon, who owns the dealership with wife Linda, William Pozzo’s granddaughter, said in a statement. “The integrated powertrain was a great selling point because Mack could control the quality of the components in the truck with its balanced design. Mack’s reputation helped our reputation as a dealer.” The dealership continues to be headquartered in Gary and has locations in South Chicago Heights, Illinois; and South Bend, Indiana. “Pozzo Truck Center has been serving Mack customers almost as long as Mack Trucks has been in business,” Jonathan Randall, senior vice president of sales for Mack Trucks North America, said in a statement. “On behalf of the entire Mack family, congratulations to Pozzo on this impressive achievement.” Mack Trucks is a unit of Sweden-based Volvo Group.
