Company History:

Allegheny Trucks, Inc. was founded September 1, 1978 by Larry M. Hale. Previously, Larry joined International Harvester in 1965 in Pittsburgh, PA and served in management positions in Linden, NJ, Boston, MA and Vorhees, NJ.

In 1978, Larry Hale and partner George Riley bought the International Harvester factory branch in Altoona, PA. In 1982 Peterman's Garage GMC dealership was purchased and Allegheny Trucks, Inc. moved to the Greenwood road location where it remains today.

Over the years Allegheny Trucks, Inc. has had GMC light, medium and heavy duty truck franchises and also Volvo at this location, but now is exclusively International. In the early 1990's Larry Hale became sole owner.

In 1991 Chris Hale, Larry's son joined the dealership focusing on fixed operations. In 1996 Parts and Service departments started operating 7 days a week, a commitment to providing excellent customer service. September 1998 the Tire department was formed as a Goodyear Tire dealer. 2002 The Wrecker department was started with our first truck built here at the dealership. Late 2002 a 15,000 square foot addition was added to accommodate the steady growth.

By 2006 the Wrecker department had grown to four heavy duty tow trucks and a 53' Landoll tractor trailer making Allegheny Trucks, Inc. a major player in towing and recovery in central Pennsylvania. In August 2011, after 46 years of tirelessly working in the heavy duty truck business, Larry M. Hale died unexpectedly from complications of pneumonia. Today all 50+ employees of Allegheny Trucks, Inc. are committed to “Keep on Truckin”.
