TRP parts store proves successful in St. Louis market

Updated Aug 3, 2018

The Larson Group (TLG) Peterbilt recently addressed the initial success of its TRP parts store, which opened near St. Louis, in Fenton, Mo. last year. While the current Peterbilt North American Dealer of the Year did not offer specific numbers, sales after the first quarter of 2016 indicate that TLG management was correct in projecting that a TRP store would thrive in the St. Louis metropolitan area, the company says.

The first TRP parts store in the area, TRP Fenton is located at 108 Matrix Commons Drive, near the junction of U.S. Interstates 44 and 270.

“We chose this location to correct the general void of support for the transportation industry in and around St. Louis,” says TLG Parts Controller Jack Hartnett.

“TLG’s relationships with fleet owners and drivers in the Midwest has also shown us there is a strong population of second and third owners as well as small fleet companies that will benefit from our TRP store.”

Because TRP is a leader in providing all-makes parts, TRP Fenton serves all drivers and fleet owners. Given that TLG specializes in Peterbilt parts, the new TRP store is especially convenient for Peterbilt customers. Together with TLG’s Peterbilt locations in nearby Sauget, Ill., and O’Fallon, Mo., the TRP store lets TLG give customers not only easy interstate-access to new and used truck sales, leasing and service but also quick access to even hard-to-find aftermarket parts, the company says.

The TRP store has a 3,200 sq. ft. high bay warehouse with room for its extensive inventory of parts. Customers who drop by the TRP store will find a showroom spanning nearly 2,000 sq. ft. — ample space to feature the wide selection of quality parts for all makes of trucks, trailers and buses.

The store also offers customers outside sales and professional all-makes part support through local parts delivery, including the added convenience of delivery to truck stops in the area.
