BELLEVUE, Wash. — Paccar says it will increase Peterbilt Class 8 truck production by eight per cent, effective July 16.
The company will also be increasing the build rate of its Class 6 and 7 trucks manufactured at its Ste-Therese, Que., facility by 22 per cent, effective Aug. 6.
“The build rate increases reflect increasing customer demand for our industry-leading products,” says Mark Pigott, Paccar chairman and chief executive officer. “Kenworth and Peterbilt Class 8 trucks continue to have the highest resale values in North America, which is especially important to our customers during the industry slowdown.”
Kenworth and Peterbilt medium-duty conventionals have earned the J.D. Power and Associates’ top honor for the last two years.
