Ransome, a Bensalem, Pa.-based Caterpillar dealer for nearly 80 years, now has been appointed by Navistar International to handle International truck sales, parts, service, leasing, rentals and engine overhauls in Philadelphia, Delaware and Chester Counties in Pennsylvania and in southern New Jersey.
“Our established expertise in truck and engine service makes this a sensible fit for us and for International, but especially for truck owners,” says Wayne Bromley, Ransome president. “We now handle truck sales, leasing, rentals and warranty service for International trucks, as well as maintenance and repairs for all other trucks and truck engines, regardless of make.”
Ransome’s facilities are located in Allentown, Whitehall, Fleetwood, Bensalem and West Chester, Pa.; Bear, Del.; and Toms River, Hammonton and Swedesboro, N.J. The company’s main truck facilities are located in West Chester and Swedesboro, while used truck sales, rentals, service and engine work also are performed at the other locations.
“Among our 550 employees, nearly 100 are highly trained truck technicians, qualified to service nearly every make and model of truck found in the U.S.,” says Lee Pearson, Ransome corporate marketing manager. “It’s almost a certainty that with our addition of International Trucks, we’ll be adding technical staff at several locations.”
