Freightliner of Savannah celebrated its 25th Anniversary on Nov. 8 with a Southern-style barbecue lunch for more than 300 guests and fleet customers, vendors, dignitaries and business friends on the grounds of their dealership at 301 O’Leary Road.

Corporate and sales executives from the regional headquarters of Freightliner, a subsidiary of Daimler, together with the mayor of Port Wentworth and suppliers such as Cummins, Detroit Diesel and others recognized company president Jason Williams and his staff with honors for their longevity and the quality of their service.

“Freightliner has been an extraordinary example of both a successful operation in Port Wentworth and a model community-minded business” said Mayor Glenn Jones, who presented Williams with a city proclamation honoring the business in the name of Williams’ father, John Williams, who opened the business 25 years ago. “We’re thrilled to have seen them grow here in our city, be a great corporate neighbor, and I wish Jason and his team continued success.”

More than a dozen vendors and aftermarket truck suppliers displayed their products during the event, and Freightliner of Savannah has its latest lineup of truck models on hand.

“We’ve been blessed with great customers, great suppliers and great business partners,” Williams said. “We’ve always tried to work very hard at really delivering great customer service every single day, and I think that’s why we’ve been successful”.

William Stiles, executive director of the Old Savannah City Mission, said the company’s success may go beyond that.

“They’re good corporate citizens, too. They’re one of those unsung heroes in our community who regularly give back and help us meet our goals, but you’d never know it.”
