the History of regional truck and trailer

Regional has more than 145 full-time employees and keeps average inventories of $11,000,000 including trucks, trailers, and parts as well as providing warranty and collision repair. The dealership has primary locations in Rochester, Buffalo and Geneva, NY and affiliate location in Jamestown, Portville, Painted Post and Dansville. As Western New York’s best truck and trailer provider of the top brands on the market today including International, Jerr-Dan, and Wabash, we feel it is important to let our customers know our roots.
Regional establishes Regional Defense, LLC, providing heavy trucking parts and vehicle solutions for military accounts.
Our Buffalo location underwent an extensive remodeling process to make the dealership a state of the art facility.

Regional becomes an authorized Jerr-Dan dealership, establishing itself as a premier supplier of tow and recovery vehicles in the upstate NY area.
Regional purchased Hanson International in Buffalo, which services Erie and Niagara counties. Renamed Regional International of Western New York Inc., this location now gives Regional complete access to all of Western New York.
Regional expanded its territory for International Truck product sales to include six more counties in Western New York and four counties in Pennsylvania. Associate Dealer alliances were formed with Boyles Motor Sales, Main Tire Exchange, and Portville Truck and Auto to effectively service the needs of our expanded customer base.
The Rochester dealership moved to its present location in Henrietta, NY, the former Fruehauf Trailer service location. Approximately 15 minutes from downtown Rochester, a 30,000 sq. ft. facility located next to the NYS Thruway. Purchase of the location also propelled Regional into the trailer market.
Regional International Corp. (DBA, Regional Truck & Trailer) was formed following the purchase of Malcuria Brothers Motor Truck Corporation, continuing operations in Rochester and Geneva. The work force was expanded to include outside parts salespeople, a used truck sales department and the new truck sales department was expanded. New personnel, capital, and philosophies were brought in by Jim Carello, the Dealer Principal. Regional was very successful in targeting municipal and fleet customers in the truck sales department and soon the dealership was positioned for growth.
Malcuria Brothers Motor Truck Corporation was formed as an International dealership by Sam Malcuria. It originally operated exclusively from a small facility located in Geneva, New York. From 1979 to 1985 the International brand had no specific representation in Rochester or the surrounding area.

International Harvester had been operating a factory store in the Rochester, New York area until the recession of 1979; at that time International Harvester closed the Rochester location in favor of servicing the entire region from a factory store in Syracuse, New York.
