Peterbilt plant marks 25 years

Peterbilt’s Denton, Texas, manufacturing facility, which has produced more tha 238,000 trucks, is celebrating its 25-year anniversary.

When the Denton plant opened, it focused on producing one model, the Model 359, at an average of 15 units monthly. Today, all seven of the company’s heavy-duty truck models are manufactured at the facility. “The tools and technologies used to build the trucks, the logistics, the capacity and efficiency, have all dramatically improved through the years,” says Dan Sobic, general manager of Peterbilt and Paccar vice president. “And these will continue to change and improve in the years ahead.”
