Rush Enterprises said it has acquired West Texas Peterbilt, a dealership with five locations in Texas, for $25 million.
The purchase by San Antonio-based Rush will extend the companyâ€™s reach to the entire state, Rush said in a statement.
Rush, which operates 70 locations in 14 states, is the only major publicly traded U.S. truck dealership, specializing in Peterbilt and Navistar Class 8 tractors.
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.
â€œThe acquisition of West Texas Peterbilt expands the companyâ€™s representation of Peterbilt in Texas to include the entire state,â€� the company said.
