HISTORY OF ZACHERL MOTOR TRUCK SALES

 

  • On September 10, 1940 Mike and Marie Zacherl opened Zacherl Motor Truck Sales on the River Hill in Clarion, Pennsylvania.  This was only the beginning of what has become one of the oldest continuing businesses in the Clarion area.

 

Breaking ground at Greenville Pike location - 1946  
  • Six years later in 1946, ground was broken near the owners' home on Route 66 (now Greenville Pike) to place a World War II surplus Quonset hut on a larger piece of ground. 
  • In 1967 a new 8 bay service department and a much larger parts department was added to the front of the Quonset hut. 

 

Original  WWII surplus building - 1946  
  • On March 12, 1974, Mike Zacherl sold the business to his daughter and son-in-law (Rose Marie and Donald Kahle), his son (Donald Zacherl), and his nephew (Joe Groner).  On June 1 of the same year, Donald Kahle became president of Zacherl Motor Truck Sales.

 

The original crew at Greenville Pike - 1946  
  • In 1977 additional space was added to the service department to create a fuel system inspection and repair center and to create more office space.

 

The new 1950 models and founder Mike Zacherl - July 1949  
  • In 1987 a brand new 8 bay service department and parts warehousing facility was constructed beside the original 1946 facility to add more area for both the service and parts departments.
  • Ten years later, in 1997, additional office space was added to allow for expansion of the Sales department and more cohesion between the parts, service, and office employees.
Welcoming home WWII Troops - 1945  
  • With a customer base that spans all counties in northwest and central Pennsylvania and a dedicated group of employees, today's Zacherl Motor Truck Sales will continue to grow and prosper with one goal in mind... customer satisfaction.
Long time parts manager Buck Fike - 1968
