Volvo Penta adds two dealers

Volvo Penta of the Americas announced the appointment of Stewart & Stevenson FDDA LLC and the Pacific Power Group as Volvo Penta authorized power centers.

FDDA, a wholly owned subsidiary of Stewart & Stevenson, is an authorized distributor of diesel engines with a strong presence in both the pleasure craft and commercial marine markets. The company has been in business for more than 50 years and has more than 250 employees in nine Florida locations.

FDDA will provide parts and service support for Volvo Penta marine products from its Miami, Jacksonville and Fort Pierce locations and will be responsible for direct engine sales throughout Florida and the Bahamas.

Established in 1958, Pacific Power Group is a privately held company primarily engaged in the sales and service of new and remanufactured engines, marine power solutions, power generation products, commercial trucks and commercial turf equipment.

The company operates 13 sales, service and parts warehousing facilities in Washington, Oregon, Alaska and Hawaii and provides extended service to eight additional Western states. Pacific Power will represent the Volvo Penta marine product lines in Washington, Oregon and Alaska and will work closely with Coastal Marine to serve the needs of Volvo Penta customers in the Pacific Northwest.

“The appointment of FDDA and Pacific Power Group as Volvo Penta power centers is part of our long-term strategy to expand our marine commercial expertise and serve the needs of commercial operators with exceptional products, innovative solutions and unparalleled customer service,” Volvo Penta North American marine sales vice president Marcia Kull said in a statement.
