Heavy-duty Truck Company

Jack McDevitt Sr. and Mack AC23

Other things may change us but we start and end with the family.

The McDevitt Family celebrates 45 years of service to New England’s transportation industries in 2019. Although most usually identified with heavy-duty vocational trucks serving the construction, refuse, and petroleum segments, the Family is very heavily vested in the highway, regional distribution, and pickup & delivery segments also.

Through constant evolution in response to changing customer needs and the demands of its manufacturers, the McDevitt Family markets it products and services with two distinct, but related, brands:

McDevitt Trucks: Mack, Western Star, and Isuzu Trucks.  Manchester and Lancaster, NH

McDevitt Trucks is also a 50% shareholder in Advantage Truck Group: Freightliner and Western Star Trucks. Seabrook, NH, Shrewsbury and Westfield, MA, and Westminster VT.
