Citing impressive growth in medium- and heavy-duty truck sales, parts and service growth, and the addition of three new locations, Peterbilt Motors Company named The Larson Group its 2015 North American Dealer of the Year.
“On behalf of everyone at The Larson Group Peterbilt, we are honored to receive Peterbilt’s highest dealer recognition,” said Glenn Larson, President and Dealer Principal of the Larson Group, which operates 16 locations in seven states. “Every member of our team strives each and every day to exceed our customers’ expectations and provide unparalleled satisfaction. Throughout every area of our operations we focus on continuous improvement and embracing the full range of Peterbilt and PACCAR products and services.”
Peterbilt announced the award during its annual Dealer Meeting in San Diego. The two-day business meeting included presentations and breakout sessions, including focused overviews of the new PACCAR MX-11 engine and SmartLINQ connected truck technology. Accepting the award were Glenn Larson and Vice Presidents Kevin Larson, Kory Larson and Kyle Larson.
“The Larson Group Peterbilt is consistently one of our top performing dealers and we are pleased to recognize them as our 2015 North American Dealer of the Year,” said Darrin Siver, Peterbilt General Manager and PACCAR Vice President. “Not only did they add three new dealerships, they added the first dedicated TRP parts store and were among the first dealerships to embrace Peterbilt’s Rapid Check expedited diagnostics program and the SmartLINQ onboard diagnostic telematics technology.”
