Kansas City Peterbilt Plans St. Joseph, Missouri, Operations-Maintenance Complex

Kansas City Peterbilt, Inc., a locally-owned branch of the highway, vocational, and medium-duty truck manufacturer, will establish a new services and maintenance facility in St. Joseph, Missouri. The $4.9 million project is expected to create four jobs.

“Saint Joseph Peterbilt’s team is excited to be a part of the St. Joseph community,” said Mark Thomas, General Manager of Kansas City Peterbilt. “We are looking forward to entrenching ourselves even more in this wonderful city. Thank you to all city members, the chamber, DED, our dedicated customers, Peterbilt, and all others who made our new location a reality.”

For this expansion, Kansas City Peterbilt will benefit from the Missouri Works program, a tool that helps companies expand and retain workers by providing access to capital through withholdings or tax credits for job creation.

“We’re glad to assist Kansas City Peterbilt as it brings a new location and investment to St. Joseph,” noted Maggie Kost, Acting Director of the Department of Economic Development. “To encourage economic growth, it’s important to support Missouri’s existing businesses. We appreciate the contributions of our partners who worked to help make this expansion a reality.”

Kansas City Peterbilt, founded in 1975, was the first and only locally-owned Peterbilt dealership within a 100 mile radius of Kansas City, Missouri, and remains the only locally-owned Peterbilt dealership in the Kansas City region. The company has supplied the commercial vehicle market at a high standard for more than 80 years, supported through a network of independent dealerships across the U.S.

“St. Joseph is excited about Peterbilt’s new facility here,” added Natalie Redmond, President and CEO of the St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce. “The capital investment is significant and we’re happy to add new jobs with the project.”
