Freightliner dealership in Queens, NY
Diehl & Sons, Inc. has been providing transportation solutions to the people of the NYC-Metropolitan area for over 100 years. Always ahead of the game in terms of technology and innovation, it’s no surprise that drivers continue choosing Diehl & Sons after all these years. Despite how much transportation has evolved in the last 100 years, the outstanding customer service you can expect from Diehl & Sons has remained the same.
When the Diehl family immigrated to the United States from Germany, they put their craftsman skills to use and founded Diehl & Sons, Inc. in 1889. They originally specialized in building horse-drawn wagon bodies in Queens, New York, but eventually, around the turn of the century, the Diehl family adapted to the changing technology and began building truck bodies. Then, in 1940, they made the transition to a full-service truck dealership for selling and servicing vehicles.
Since then, the Diehl family sold their business to Bob Austin, who brought years of experience and insight regarding truck manufacturing. Bob Austin eventually passed on the dealership to his son, Doug Austin, who is currently the dealer principle. Through the years, Diehl & Sons continued evolving and adding inventory, such as Mercedes-Benz, Isuzu, and Mitsubishi Fuso trucks, until 1989, when Freightliner trucks were first made available at the dealership. Then, in 2001, Diehl’s Truck World introduced the Freightliner Sprinter to the United States, becoming a leader in the industry.
