Volvo Penta adds Mid-Atlantic distributorPosted on
Volvo Penta of the Americas chose Johnson & Towers as an authorized power center for the Mid-Atlantic states.
Volvo said Johnson & Towers is a family-owned business that is focused on the distribution and service of heavy diesel engines and transmissions for on-highway, off-highway, marine and power generation markets.
The company will be responsible for sales and service of Volvo Penta leisure and commercial marine engines in New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, eastern Pennsylvania and Bermuda.
“The addition of Johnson & Towers to our growing distribution network is a reflection of our focus on creating a strong leisure and commercial marine presence in key geographical markets,” Volvo Penta North America vice president of marine sales Marcia Kull said in a statement.
“The company has a strong technical background and deep understanding of the diesel engine business. With its Marine Division centers in Mount Laurel and Egg Harbor, N.J., Johnson & Towers is well-positioned in close proximity to a major boatbuilding center, commercial marine operation base and one of the top boating markets in the country.”
“Volvo Penta is an important addition to our diesel product lines,” Johnson & Towers senior vice president Bob Shomo said. “Volvo Penta has an outstanding reputation for product excellence and innovation in the marine marketplace, and we look forward to working closely with Volvo Penta’s sales and service teams to strengthen technical support in this key region.”
