Mack and Volvo truck dealership chain TEC Equipment, based in Portland, OR, has signed a dealership agreement with Cottrell Inc. to sell Cottrell-brand auto transport equipment and related parts at TEC’s Portland location, as well as offer service and repair at the same location.

TEC said it plans to expand Cottrell sales and service to one or more of its seven other dealerships in Oregon, Nevada and California. TEC noted it opened as full service auto transport equipment division in 2001, growing rapidly into one of the largest auto transport equipment dealerships in North America for all makes of equipment, including Cottrell, Boydstun and Sun Valley.

“With the addition of the Cottrell product lineup, our auto transport equipment division has come full circle,” said David Thompson TEC’s president and CEO. “The relationship allows us to expand market presence while opening the Western U.S. market to Cottrell parts, service and sales.”
