Northeast Great Dane

History of Northeast Great Dane

Northeast Great Dane is a third generation family trucking business. It is headed by its' President, Tom Leuner and his business partner, John Gendelman, the company's Executive Vice-President. The first generation was started by Tom's grandfather when he was providing contract hauling for A&P in 1916. Tom's father joined the business upon completing his tour in the US Navy and helped grow the business to 75 tractors and 150 trailers by 1970.

 Knowing the need for diversification the business began selling what they were accustomed to buying, Great Dane Trailers. The family started Northeast Great Dane in Florida, New York, in 1973. It quickly added a location in Marathon, New York and then another Massachusetts.

 After a fire destroyed the company's headquarters in Florida, New York, in 1995, the company relocated to Hillsborough, New Jersey. It also rebuilt its' Florida, New York location and currently has additional locations in Lancaster, New York, Syracuse, New York and Auburn, Massachusetts.
