Peterbilt Motors Co. announced the construction of a 54,000-square-foot Montana Peterbilt dealership facility in Lockwood. Kevin Gustainis, Montana Peterbilt owner and president, hosted the groundbreaking ceremony that was attended by numerous state and local dignitaries.
“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 truckstops on the Interstate 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. And, with increased demand from the area’s oil industry, this new facility can provide the support levels they require.”
The new facility, schedule to open May 2013, will feature 26 full-service bays for truck maintenance and repair operations, and a drivers’ lounge with wireless connectivity. In attendance along with Montana Peterbilt owners Kevin and John Gustainis and their senior staff were Montana Congressman Denny Rehberg, Billings Mayor Tom Hanel, Yellowstone County Commissioner John Ostlund and Montana District 44 State Rep. Jonathan McNiven.
