About Us…

Grand Traverse Diesel Service

Grand Traverse Diesel Service Inc. was incorporated in 1986 and moved to its current location in 1993. In 1998 we became a Freightliner, Sterling and Western Star Parts Service and Warranty dealer. As a dealer, we have become certified in Detroit Diesel engines (including the new DD15 family), Cummins engine and Allison Transmissions.
