Arrow Truck Sales Inc, a Kansas City MO-based pre-owned truck dealership with 17 nationwide locations, plans to expand its Canadian sales efforts and open a new sales facility in Calgary, Alberta by the end of 2002. In conjunction with this expansion, Arrow Canada will be refocusing its efforts at its current Toronto, Ontario, location. This will include improving inventory selection of all makes and models, specifically Volvo and Mack. The Toronto facility also will be renovated.
To support this initiative, Frank Oliveira has been named vice-president — Arrow Truck Sales Canada, and David Hemphill has been hired as branch manager for the Calgary office.
Oliveira, a native Canadian, worked for Freightliner LLC and its subsidiary corporation, Freightliner Market Development Corp, as national used-truck manager — Canada for more than four years. Hemphill has worked for Kenworth Truck Co and was on the Used Truck Advisory Council as Canadian representative for seven years. He was used-truck manager of Greatwest Kenworth in Alberta for eight years. For the past two years, he operated DLH Enterprise (Canada4Trucks.com).
