Velocity Truck Centers (VTC), the leading group of commercial vehicle dealerships in the Southwest, is pleased to announce that the company has acquired Central California Truck and Trailer Sales, Inc. (CCTTS), the leading independent used-truck and new/used trailer retailer in California. Warren Auwae, CCTTS’s founder, has joined VTC and will be responsible for the combined trailer and used truck operations of CCTTS and VTC.
With the combination of CCTTS’ 6 locations in California and VTC’s 9 locations, the group will becomes one of the largest volume retailers of used trucks in the west with 15 total locations across California, Arizona and Nevada. CCTTS also brings expertise in new and used trailer sales to the VTC family. In addition CCTTS will now be able to offer financing through VTC’s sister company, Crossroads Equipment Lease and Finance, bringing many more options for the CCTTS customer base to acquire equipment.

Warren and his sales team are best-in-class in all metrics and will bring additional skills and perspective to the Velocity network.
