Peterbilt Motors Company has broken ground on a 102,000-square-foot expansion to its heavy-duty truck manufacturing facility in Denton, Texas.

The new building will be located just north of the plant and provide additional capacity for production and testing.

“This expansion is Peterbilt’s largest facility investment since the construction of the Denton plant and it will make a significant impact on our operational efficiencies,” said Darrin Siver, Peterbilt General Manager and PACCAR Vice President. “Peterbilt is committed to ongoing investment in its facilities, people and products. This expansion ensures Peterbilt’s ability to continue to provide customers with the industry’s top performing, highest quality trucks well into the future.”

The expansion is expected to be operational in January 2017.

Last year Peterbilt began a multi-phase plant improvement project that increased receiving capacity on the east side of the plant and added an expansion to the west side of the plant. The third phase, which will be completed in October, creates a new painted parts storage and retrieval system on the second level of the building.
