Peterbilt Motors Company celebrated a significant milestone at the company's Denton manufacturing
facility with the completion of its 300,000th production truck.
Delivery of the Model 387 aerodynamic truck to Witte Brothers Exchange, Inc. was done at the Denton, Texas plant amongst Peterbilt employees, local government officials and the media.
"Peterbilt is proud to celebrate this important milestone with Witte Brothers Exchange, as both of our companies share an unwavering commitment to the transportation industry, our employees, and a superior
product," says Bill Jackson, Peterbilt General Manager and PACCAR Vice President. "The 300,000th truck produced, a Peterbilt Model 387, signifies the attributes of Peterbilt past, present and future through
its fuel efficient design, while not comprising the Class and Style that have become synonymous with the Peterbilt brand."
In August of 1980, Peterbilt Denton's first truck rolled off the assembly line - a white Model 359. In the 29 years since, the Texas manufacturing facility has continued to evolve with a constant dedication to building the best truck in the industry by continuously improving quality, performance, reliability and customer satisfaction.
Today, all seven of the company's heavy-duty truck models are manufactured at the facility.
"Witte Brothers is proud to partner with Peterbilt Motors Company. Our company's rich history dates back to before 1950 when the company canvassed the Midwest United States hauling livestock and grain," said
Brent Witte, President, Witte Brothers Exchange, Inc. "It is a honor to take delivery of Peterbilt Denton's 300,000th produced truck - it represents our dedication to excellence, which is evident to our
