LEWISVILLE, Texas — Summit Truck Group LLC announced Sept. 15 that the company has assumed responsibility for the International Truck franchise in Jonesboro, Arkansas. Located about 75 miles northwest of Memphis, Tennessee, Jonesboro is closest geographically to the Summit dealership in Memphis, as well as to other Summit locations in Little Rock, Arkansas, and Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
Summit has leased a facility at 5711 Commerce Square in Jonesboro that will be the site of Summit of Jonesboro. From this location, Summit is authorized to sell International trucks, IC Bus school buses and Isuzu trucks, as well as used trucks. In addition, the facility will provide parts, and service to support customers in the Jonesboro market.
“Summit already has some fleet customers in the Jonesboro area who have purchased trucks from Summit in the past,” said Justin Fink, CEO of Summit. “We look forward to opening up our new facility in Jonesboro, so that we can support those customers more fully.”
Summit intends to hire additional employees to operate the new Jonesboro location and expects to open the facility in October.
Previously, Heartland Equipment operated an International Truck dealership in Jonesboro. Heartland will continue to own and operate a farm equipment, construction equipment, and land leveling equipment operation at its existing facility.
