DENTON, Texas — Peterbilt Motors Company announced the construction of a 54,000-square-foot Montana Peterbilt dealership facility in Lockwood, Mont.
Kevin Gustainis, Montana Peterbilt owner and president, hosted the ground breaking ceremony, attended by numerous state and local dignitaries. The new facility, schedule to open May 2013, will feature 26 full service bays for truck maintenance and repair operations, and a spacious drivers’ lounge with numerous amenities including wireless connectivity.
“We are proud of Montana Peterbilt and the entire Peterbilt dealer network for the continued investments in facilities, technology, and services,” said Bill Kozek, Peterbilt General Manager and Paccar Vice President. "The new Montana Peterbilt facility is ideally located to provide excellent parts and service support for our mutual customers.”
Located near two major truck stops on the I-90 and I-94 corridor, the new Peterbilt Montana will have a premier location according to Gustainis.
"We want to grow our business while continuing to care for our local customers, and to do that we need a bigger facility that provides convenient access to operators running the major interstate corridor," said Gustainis. “And, with increased demand from the area’s oil industry, this new facility can provide the support levels they require.”
