Trey Murdaugh, President of TL North America, made the announcement at EAA AirVenture stating “we are excited to offer a nationwide network of sales and service dealerships that will continue to grow here in the U.S. “This expansion positions TL North America with regional dealership coverage in Arkansas, Florida, Illinois, Kansas, Maryland, South Carolina, and Texas.
