June 30, 2015 – Peterbilt Motors Company says it hosted dozens of medium-duty fleet owners and managers at the PACCAR manufacturing facility in Sainte-Thérèse, Quebec earlier this month, giving tours of the plant, educational seminars and test drives of the company’s Class 6-7 lineup in various configurations.
“This year we’re excited to showcase our latest product line enhancements, including the new compressed natural gas powered models 337 and 348,” said Robert Woodall, Peterbilt assistant general manager of sales and marketing.
Among the vehicles on display, Woodall added, were the cabover Model 220 in pickup and delivery and beverage distribution applications; the Model 330 in a security transport spec; the Model 337 in CDL and non-CDL configurations; and vocationally spec’d Model 348s.
The PACCAR facility in Ste-Thérèse—which opened in 1999 and has produced more than 100,000 vehicles, according to Peterbilt—manufactures Peterbilt’s Class 5-7 conventional models. Peterbilt’s Class 6-7 cabover Model 220 is manufactured at the PACCAR plant in Mexicali, Mexico.
Peterbilt is a PACCAR Company, traded publicly on the NASDAQ as PCAR.
