PACCAR Parts marks its 50th anniversary this year as a distributor and marketer of aftermarket products for medium- and heavy-duty trucks, trailers, buses and engines. The company’s first Parts Distribution Center (PDC) opened in 1973 in Renton, Washington.
Today, PACCAR Parts operates 18 PDCs on four continents, providing 3.4 million square feet of distribution capacity. The newest PDC in Louisville, Kentucky, started shipping in August 2022, increasing parts availability for dealers and customers in the central, mid-Atlantic and southeastern regions of the U.S. Along this same timeframe, the dealership networks expanded from approximately 180 locations in 1973 to more than 2,300 locations today.
