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

The expansion includes a new building that will increase the plant's production and testing capacity and is expected to be operational in January 2017. It is part of a multi-phase plant improvement project that already has increased receiving capacity on the east side of the plant and added an expansion to the west side of the plant.

The third phase will be completed in October, creating a new painted parts storage and retrieval system on the second level of the building.

“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.
