One of the largest truck dealerships in the country has been opened by Jackson Group Peterbilt in Salt Lake City. The newest Peterbilt dealership in the company’s 270-plus dealer network is a 128,000-sq. ft. facility with 2,500 sq. ft. of retail display space and 70 service bays, including six that are certified for maintenance and repair of natural gas vehicles.
Jackson Group Peterbilt’s new flagship store is one of nine Peterbilt dealerships in Colorado, Idaho, Nevada and Utah operated by the company. A 10th is expected to open soon in Salina, Utah. The company was founded in 1977 by Eric C. Jackson with the purchase of a dealership in Salt Lake City and is now run by his son, Blake Jackson, dealer principal.
“On behalf of our entire team, we are extremely proud that we are open for business at the new, state-of-the-art facility,” Blake Jackson said. “This purpose-built dealership allows us to serve customers with greater productivity and efficiency, including natural gas fleets, which are a growing industry segment.”
