Volvo Penta of the Americas says it has appointed Johnson & Towers as an authorized Power Center for the U.S. Mid-Atlantic region. The company will be responsible for sales and service of Volvo Penta leisure & commercial marine engines for New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, eastern Pennsylvania and Bermuda.

Johnson & Towers is a family-owned business focused on distribution and service of heavy diesel engines and transmissions for on-highway, off-highway, marine and power generation markets since 1926.

"“The addition of Johnson & Towers to our growing distribution network is a reflection of our focus on creating a strong leisure and commercial marine presence in key geographical markets,”" said Marcia Kull, Volvo Penta Vice President Marine Sales, North America. “"The company has a strong technical background and deep understanding of the diesel engine business.
