GreenPower Motor Co. Inc. recently announced the appointment of Plainfield-based H.K. Truck Center as its dealer for medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles in the central New Jersey market.

H.K. Truck Center has been a leading provider in sales, service, parts, leasing and rentals for truck owners and operators throughout the Northeast for more than 40 years. The company strives to build excellent client relationships in all areas of its quality-conscious operations, including offering new and used commercial medium-duty truck sales, repair and maintenance.

“We are excited to begin our partnership with an organization such as GreenPower Motor Co., as they align so closely with our values. GreenPower is engineered to be the strongest, safest and most durable product on the market, and we stand behind any company that provides reliable, safe, efficient and green vehicles,” Henry Knabe, general manager of H.K.
