Glover’s is central Arkansas’ most complete Western Star truck dealership, located in North Little Rock, Ark. Truck Centers of Arkansas says this purchase represents a unique and significant opportunity to enhance the growth of the company, and advance the company’s strategic focus on growing its heavy-duty truck business.

The Glover’s Truck location will remain open and focus on transmission and rear end repair. All Glover’s employees affected by the sale have been offered positions at Truck Centers of Arkansas, the company says.

“As a locally owned business, we understand and value the success of Glover’s Truck. We are excited to welcome the Glover’s team of dedicated employees to the Truck Centers of Arkansas family. This investment also illustrates our confidence in the future of the Western Star franchise and the growth of the heavy duty truck industry,” says Rick Vassar, vice president and owner at Truck Centers of Arkansas.
