Gabrielli Truck Sales has become Mack Trucks’ first certified electric vehicle dealer in New York, it was announced July 28.

Located near John F. Kennedy International Airport, Gabrielli Truck Sales is now fully equipped to service and support the Mack LR Electric for the New York City region and the New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY).

“Mack Trucks is pleased that Gabrielli Truck Sales made the investment to become a certified EV dealer,” said Jonathan Randall, senior vice president of sales and commercial operations at Mack Trucks.



“Gabrielli and Mack are well-equipped to help EV customers, as well as all customers, receive the sales, service and support they expect from Mack," he added. " Mack is committed to helping customers achieve sustainability goals, and we look forward to continuing our collaboration with Gabrielli.”

Mack Trucks dealers must meet various safety, charging, training, infrastructure and tooling requirements to become EV-certified. Gabrielli Truck Sales worked through a process to meet those requirements and now has two EV-certified technicians and one service bay dedicated to servicing electric vehicles.

“Gabrielli Truck Sales chose to upgrade the JFK facility to ensure that we were ready to meet the future needs of Mack customers like DSNY that choose to purchase electric vehicles, like the Mack LR Electric refuse vehicle,” said Andrew Kanas, director of business development at Gabrielli Truck Sales. “Working hand-in-hand with Mack Trucks, Gabrielli is committed to be on the leading edge of the EV movement, and we plan to certify all of our dealerships in the future.” — Transport Topics
