Company History

Baltimore Potomac Truck Centers operates five full-service commercial truck dealership locations throughout Maryland and Virginia, featuring franchise locations for Mack, Volvo, and Hino Trucks.

The corporation, founded in 1973, is third generation family owned and operated. At its inception it was a single location Mack truck dealership in downtown Baltimore (which later moved to its current location in Linthicum, MD). Over the years the footprint has expanded to the Washington, DC market, and Potomac Mack Sales & Service was established as the second location in 1982. The reach has since expanded even further to include locations in Hagerstown, MD and Gainesville, VA, as well as a second facility in Linthicum, MD dedicated to the Volvo truck brand. Our portfolio has also grown, and now includes franchises for Volvo and Hino trucks at many of our locations.

In 2014, the Baltimore Potomac Truck Centers was formed as a holding company to coordinate the management and operations of all locations with a singular approach. Subsequently, the dealerships were renamed to either Baltimore Truck Center or Potomac Truck Center.

Also in 2014, a new division was formed as Potomac Truck Leasing, which serves as our dealer-owned truck leasing and rental company.

Baltimore Potomac Truck Centers takes great pride in the people in our organization and the customers that we serve. We hope that you will consider becoming our business partner in the commercial truck industry.
