Freightliner of Grand Rapids was formed in January 1978 to represent the Freightliner brand for West Michigan. In 1985 the operation moved to its present location, a 13-acre tract of land on Clay Avenue.
Freightliner of Grand Rapids made a bold move in the fall of 1994 with the addition of our new branch off Sprinkle Road in the heart of Kalamazoo. Freightliner of Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo was born.
To accommodate growing success, we relocated our Kalamazoo branch in November 2005 to a 25-acre multimillion-dollar complex in the village of Mattawan, just 15 miles from Kalamazoo.
Freightliner of Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo continues to make great strides in offering exceptional customer service, knowledge, and value in our service and parts departments. Between our two locations, we currently employ more than 115 specialists and stock over $4 million of Freightliner, Western Star, and all-makes parts inventory. Our service technicians have a wealth of expertise averaging well over ten years of experience each. Our staff is well trained to service and repair your fleet or answer any questions you may have.
From the beginning, one of our goals was to provide our customers with an expansive inventory of used trucks. Today, Freightliner of Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo is known for having one of the largest and most diverse used truck inventories in the United States, with more than 100 units in stock between our two locations. In 2008 we added the SelecTrucks franchise to our Kalamazoo location allowing us to offer terrific discounts and the best buyer’s assurance program in the industry to our customers.
In 2020, we were honored to have been selected to add the Western Star brand for our area of responsibility providing our customers with another quality brand to fit their individual business needs. In a very short period of time, we were able to assemble a knowledgeable, friendly, and experienced staff to provide a high level of support for Western Star trucks in the West Michigan area. With this addition, we now represent the complete line of products offered by Daimler Trucks North America.
Our philosophy is simple: We want to contribute to your success. We know trucks, and we know drivers. We pride ourselves on being more than a typical dealership. Our work is fueled by loyalty, integrity, and experience.
We look forward to working with you.
