April 2006

For April, we feature Associate Member George Hallahan Jr., President of Drive Train Truck Parts in Holtsville, NY as our Member of the Month. George oversees the day to day operations of the company and was responsible for the expansion and the construction of new 40,000 sq. ft. building they now occupy. The state of the art facility houses a 10 bay service shop complete with a chassis dynamometer, a Rebuilding shop which includes a transmission dynamometer and valve body testing machine for Allison Transmissions, a test machine for testing steering gears, a transmission dynamometer for testing standard shift transmissions and equipment for balancing and repairing drive shafts.

As a young kid, George Jr. spent his days off from school and parts of his summer vacations going to work with his father, George Sr., at John's Truck Parts in Brooklyn, NY. George Sr. was the Manager before he left and started up Drive Train Truck Parts in 1984 then located in Ronkonkoma, NY. In 1988, the company moved to their present location in Holtsville.

George Jr. learned the trade from the ground up in the family business. Under George Jr.'s leadership, sales have doubled over the past six years. The company became an authorized Allison dealer and is Cummins authorized for warranty work. Sister companies include Fleet Truck Parts which is responsible for buying and selling used trucks and equipment and Hallahan Truck Sales which is an Autocar Dealer selling new trucks. In the coming years, George hopes for expansion into the Tri-State area.

George was born in Rockville Centre, NY in 1970 and graduated from Bayshore High School. He is married to his wife, Karena, since 1991 and has two sons Jack, 7 and James 6. George enjoys spending time with the family and his hobbies include fishing, playing cards and golf. The Hallahans reside in South Hampton, NY.

In December 2005 George took over the Associate Member representation from his father who had been an Associate Member since 1992. He has been a very active Member and very supportive of the events that we hold.
