Volvo Trucks named General Truck Sales of Muncie, Indiana, its 2018 Dealer of the Year for North America.

The annual award recognized General Truck Sales and its employees for outstanding performance in a number of key areas, including growth of new truck sales, parts sales, customer satisfaction, dealer operating standards, franchise investment and support for other dealers.

“General Truck Sales consistently proves to be one of Volvo Trucks’ best all-around performing dealers and 2018 was no exception,” said Bruce Kurtt, senior vice president of U.S. sales for Volvo Trucks North America. “Dealer principal Steve Bassett and the whole General Truck Sales team’s continued commitment to customer success is unmatched in the industry and they are the ultimate ambassadors of the Volvo brand.”
