Peterbilt’s Texas manufacturing facility is celebrating a major achievement – the production of its 750,000th truck. The milestone truck, a Model 579, recently rolled off the assembly line since the plant’s establishment in 1980.

In a special ceremony at the Denton plant on November 14, Peterbilt presented TMC Transportation Inc. with the keys to the Model 579. TMC, the largest privately held flatbed carrier in the nation, is based in Des Moines Iowa and exclusively operates a fleet of Peterbilt trucks.

Peterbilt highlighted TMC’s reputation as a top flatbed carrier, emphasized by their highly skilled drivers, meticulously maintained equipment, and unwavering commitment to exceptional quality and customer service.

“TMC demands excellence when it comes to our equipment. Peterbilt trucks are meticulously specified for high performance and driver comfort to meet that demand,” said Jason Webb, TMC Transportation’s executive vice president of asset management. “It’s a great honor to receive this Model 579 and 750,000th truck assembled at the Denton manufacturing plant. We celebrate this significant milestone with Peterbilt and Allstate Peterbilt Dealer Group, our outstanding partner.”

The Model 579 is a perfect blend of technology, style, and functionality. It boasts unrivaled comfort, enhanced aerodynamics, and impressive fuel efficiency.

“Peterbilt and our world-class employees are proud to present TMC with the 750,000th truck built at our Denton factory,” said Jason Skoog, general manager of Peterbilt and vice president of PACCAR. “We recognize the importance of providing products tailored to meet our customer’s unique specifications with the highest levels of quality and craftsmanship. Delivering this Model 579 to TMC for their all-Peterbilt fleet is a special recognition of our multi-decade partnership.”
