The purchase includes dealerships in Amarillo, Lubbock and Odessa, Texas that offer Peterbilt trucks, parts and service; a parts and service facility in Dalhart, Texas; and a parts facility in Hereford, Texas.

All will operate in their current locations as Rush Truck Centers, the company said.

“The acquisition of West Texas Peterbilt expands the company’s representation of Peterbilt in Texas to include the entire state,� the company said.
