“This is a special moment for Kenworth, MHC Kenworth – Tulsa and Melton Truck Lines as we reflect on an important relationship that has been established with Bob Peterson and his staff. The number 5,000 is daunting when you consider that truck No. 1 – a Kenworth T600 – was delivered to Melton many years ago,” said Kevin Baney, Kenworth assistant general manager for sales and marketing, who presented the new T680’s keys to Peterson. “We thank you for your business on behalf of Kenworth; your dealer, MHC Kenworth – Tulsa, and the entire MHC organization; and our Kenworth Chillicothe (Ohio) plant employees who build your trucks. We take pride in the quality of our trucks, and we have that same pride when we look at Melton Truck Lines. We look forward to continuing to support the Melton team and delivering many more Kenworth trucks to come.”

During the ceremony, Peterson was joined by Melton’s Robert Ragan (executive vice president and chief financial officer); Russ Elliott, (executive vice president and chief operating officer), Jeff Robinson (senior vice president of maintenance); Jason Cruce (director of maintenance), and Bradley Bournes (warranty and outside repair supervisor). Kenworth participants also included Laura Bloch (general sales manager – West) and Tom Platts (fleet sales director).
