US Truck Parts & Sales was started by Vaughn Thompson in 1978 but the Thompson family’s history in the truck industry began much earlier. In 1949 EV “Sonny” Thompson started a used truck parts business in Corpus Christi, TX along with AA “Slats” Allen, John Plant, and Raymond Jowers. EV Thompson eventually moved to several locations around the state and in 1974 he started Central Truck Parts located in Dallas at the corner of Irving Blvd. and Mockingbird Ln. His three sons, Vaughn, Brian, and Raymond, all worked at that location with him to learn the business. In 2016 Sonny Thompson, Raymond’s son, made the decision to move away from a franchised truck sales corporation and take US Truck Parts into the 21st century. He purchased the company from Vaughn to pursue his vision.
Over the years, US Truck Parts & Sales, LLC has made the necessary changes to support customers at the highest possible level with a focus on rebuilt transmissions & differentials, pull-out engines, engine parts and body parts. Bruckner’s is pleased to announce that Sonny Thompson, Ace Allen and their team will continue in their roles as they are true subject matter experts in their field.
Brian Bruckner, President, stated, “We are excited to expand our presence in the DFW area with the acquisition of US Truck Parts & Sales, LLC. They have a history of providing great customer service and a ‘do what it takes’ attitude. We will continue to provide that same level of service with the existing team.”
US Truck Parts & Sales will continue the same hours of operation: 8:00am – 5:00pm, Mon – Fri.
Contact information will also remain the same: www.ustruckpartsandsales.com and (972) 557-7979.
About Bruckner Truck Sales
Bruckner Truck Sales has been committed to keeping drivers and business on the road since 1932. B.M. “Benny” Bruckner Sr. started a tradition by selling and servicing Mack Trucks in Amarillo, Texas. The culture of hiring “good people” dedicated to service was a practice kept by Bennie’s son, Ben Bruckner Jr. until his passing in 2012. That same promise is kept alive and well today by Ben Jr’s sons – Chris and Brian Bruckner. The landscape of the company has expanded in scale with 28 locations in 6 states representing American built brands, Volvo and Mack Trucks. Because of their people, Bruckner Truck Sales is a leader in sales, service and value throughout the Southwest United States.
