Our History

A Vision for Excellence

Growing up on a farm, John Sr. understood machines. In his first job, at a farm dealership, he began his career as a mechanic. His very first shop was so small, it only accommodated cars and pickups. 

Central Automotive Services grew and for more than 27 years as he repaired every kind of truck. 

In 1993, in his mid-fifties, he accepted the offer to become a Mack dealer – that changed everything.

In 2008, John Sr. passed the responsibility to his son, John. He inspired the next generations to continue his legacy 

of working hard, leading by example and living generously.

Today, Vision Truck Group looks forward to driving forward, expanding and continuing to build on a 

foundation of excellence.
