Summit Truck Group expands reach in Missouri

Posted online

Lewisville, Texas-based Summit Truck Group LLC, a company that’s operated in Springfield for two decades, is growing its reach in the Show-Me State with two recent acquisitions.

Summit Truck Group this month entered agreements to purchase the majority of the assets of Sedalia-based Trans Central Suppliers Inc. and Cape Girardeau-based Wiethop Truck Sales Inc. Terms were not disclosed in news releases announcing the acquisitions.

In the city of Sedalia, located about 120 miles north of the company’s Springfield facility, Summit Truck Group is adding Trans Central Supplier’s 14,000-square-foot building.

The deal is expected to close Oct. 1, when the former Trans Central will begin doing business as Summit Truck Group of Sedalia, according to the release.

The acquisition in Cape Girardeau, about 270 miles east of Springfield, is expected to close Nov. 1 for Wiethop Truck Sales, creating Summit Truck Group of Cape Girardeau, according to a separate release.

Summit Truck Group, which operates around 25 truck dealer, service and repair shops in seven states, has a 62,000-square-foot facility in north Springfield at 2635 E. Diamond St. in the New Prime subdivision, according to Greene County assessor records.

Summit Truck Group previously was known locally as Diamond International of Springfield until a name change in early 2014 — brought on by a merger with Roberts Truck Center LLC, according to past Springfield Business Journal reporting.

The company also has Missouri locations in Joplin, Kansas City, St. Joseph and West Plains, according to its website.
