The states cannot be imagined without American Peterbilt trucks. Truck tractors Peterbilt - shining in chrome, have an incredibly powerful engine. The wheelbase of the "American" is six by four, and just a gigantic berth cannot ignore not only the inhabitants of America.
After the First World War, the demand for trucks increased dramatically in the United States. This is largely due to the increase in the network of good roads. In 1919, Cummins organized a diesel engine company that still bears his name to this day. He made a lot of efforts to popularize the diesel engine and in 1931 made several advertising runs across the country in trucks and buses equipped with his engines. As a result, more and more manufacturers prefer diesel engines. At the same time, the popularity of cabover tractors began to grow. Trucks are replacing horses everywhere, with the exception of a few delivery services in major cities. We can say that by the beginning of the second quarter of a century, the transportation revolution took place in America.
The popularity of trucks continued to grow in the 1930s. Although sales fell, the Great Depression affected truck manufacturing less than other businesses. New models were constantly entering the market, but nevertheless, many firms could not avoid bankruptcy, as, for example, happened with the California company Fudgeon Motors, which, after 17 years of manufacturing heavy trucks and buses, went under the hammer in 1932. The new owners of the company - Vaukesha Motors Company and the Central Bank of Oakland - operated it until 1938, after which it was sold in April 1939 to T.A. Peterman, a timber merchant in Tacoma, Washington.
Peterman needed trucks to transport the logs. Previously, for this purpose, he altered decommissioned army vehicles, but now he decided to start his own production himself. The new company was named Peterman Manufacturing Company, and the machines were named Peterbilt (this was the name of the wooden doors produced by one of Peterman's companies). In the same year, 1939, the first 14 trucks left the gates of the plant.
While Henry Ford assembled hundreds of cars a day, T.A. Peterman didn’t build as many even a year, focusing on quality over quantity. This approach very soon gave a positive result. In the 40s, sales began to grow rapidly. Already in 1940, 82 cars were assembled, in 1941 - 89. And over the next 10 years, more than 2000 trucks were sold.
The fact that Peterman owned a plywood factory was reflected in the first trucks: inside the cabin was trimmed with plywood. However, later this idea had to be abandoned. "Quality and durability have been a feature of the Peterbilts from the beginning," current general manager Nick Lanza said at the anniversary celebrations. "These characteristics remain at the heart of the firm today. In every truck we design, test and manufacture." The state military order for 225 vehicles in 1944 especially helped "Peterbilt". In 1945, things went even better, and in the end 324 cars were sold.
After that, "Peterbilt" had to withstand many blows of fate, the first of which was Peterman's death in 1945 from cancer. The company is owned by Peterman's widow, Ida, who soon sells all the factories, leaving the land on which they were built as her property. The new owners of "Peterbilt", seven managers of the company, plan to maintain and develop the company, changing its name, but in 1958 Mrs. Peterman announced her intention to build a shopping center on her land. Peterbilt faces a dilemma of where to get $ 2 million for the construction of a new plant, and since the owners of the company are quite elderly people, in the face of impending old age they did not want to incur long-term debt, it was decided to put the company up for auction. Paul Pigot from Pacific Car and Foundry immediately became interested in her. On June 24, 1958, he acquired the firm. A year later, construction began on a modern plant in Nework, California. In total, about 2,000 cars were produced in the 50s.
In August 1960, Peterbilt moved to new territory in new buildings and became a division of the company, which in 1972 became known as Pakkar. At the same time, Peterbilt kept its name, traditions, lineup and continued to be one of Kenworth's main competitors, despite the fact that both companies had one owner.
During the first year, Peterbilt builds more than 800 trucks at the new plant. In total, about 21,000 cars were produced in the 60s. Very soon, the capacity of the plant is no longer sufficient for the needs of the company, and in 1969 Peterbilt opens a plant in Nashville, Tennessee. In the 70s, 72,000 cars were produced. In 1980, a third plant opens in the Texas city of Denton. In 1986, production in Nework is phased out, but managers and engineers remain there. In the 1980s, about 100,000 Peterbilt trucks rolled off the assembly line.
Every year "Peterbilt" underwent changes, they also affected the logo. It is considered traditional to write it without a rim. The legend has survived that Peterman sketched it on a napkin during lunch.
On November 2, 1944, the badge was placed in a rectangle.
February 16, 1953 - the third type of trademark is born. It now looks more like the old one, but the inscription has become smoother and is located in the red oval badge, which has been a distinctive feature of Peterbilt trucks for almost 50 years.
Peterbilt owns many innovations in the field of the truck industry. Here is some of them.
1945 year. Peterbilt pioneered the use of aluminum to reduce frame weight and increase payload.
1949 year. Introduced an engine for a cabover tractor pending the introduction of road train length restrictions on motorways. In 1950, the first cabover tractors 280/350 (two- and three-axle) were demonstrated. The cockpit could tilt forward, but this procedure was quite lengthy. Such machines were produced for 5 years.
1959 year. The company introduces a 90-degree tiltable bonnet that makes service easy.
1965 year. Creation of the first all-aluminum tilt hood.
In the early 70s, Peterbilt began to manufacture garbage collection trucks. The first model "SV300" is produced together with "Kenworth" in the Canadian city of Montreal. The model "310", presented in 1978, broke the "SV300" record. In January 1987, garbage truck production was relocated to Denton, Texas. At the same time, production of the "320LCF" model begins.
The production of the "362SOE" cabover is still ongoing. The very first "362" was introduced in 1981 and remains popular to this day. There are options with and without a berth.
