DISCOVER OUR VALUES

WE WERE TRUCK DRIVERS FIRST

Before becoming a trucking industry titan, our owners ran their own family truck line in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Claire Larson and his six sons hauled grain and livestock for more than 20 years, and four of those family members are directly involved with TLG Peterbilt today.

FROM DRIVERS TO DEALERS

In September 1987, co-owners Claire Larson and his son, Glenn, were given the opportunity to run a Peterbilt dealership in Springfield, Missouri. Pictured at left: Claire Larson meets with Peterbilt Motors Company to celebrate becoming a dealership owner. And the journey to come was better than they initially anticipated. 

TRUE TO OUR ROOTS

The momentum continued and TLG essentially grew overnight. With our farming and truck operating roots, TLG has an understanding of both driver and business needs that led to numerous accolades and company expansion. As we acquired additional Peterbilt dealerships, the Larson brothers worked side-by-side with our growing workforce to maintain a culture crafted from our values that include meaningful customer relationships and family.

EXPLORING OPPORTUNITY

It wasn't long before the Larson family took their services to Joplin, Missouri with their first satellite store. And not too long after, they expanded into Arkansas. TLG Peterbilt – Joplin, Fort Smith (Van Buren, AR) and NW Arkansas (Lowell, AR) are still owned and operated by the Larsons today.

BIGGER FOOTPRINT

The Larson Group gradually made its way beyond just the Midwest. North and South Carolina welcomed TLG with open arms in 2015, and we even had the honor of opening Peterbilt Motors Company's 400th Peterbilt dealership in early 2020. This marks a total 21 TLG Peterbilt locations today.

TRUCK COMPONENT SERVICES OPENS

The Larson Group took ownership of a 25-acre truck salvage yard, stocked with over 200 salvage trucks in 2011. Truck Component Services, located in Strafford, MO and is close to TLG's flagship dealership, specializes in refuse vehicles and salvage parts, and offers a variety of shop services.

DEALER OF THE YEAR

Peterbilt Motors Company announced TLG Peterbilt as the North American Dealer in February 2020. This was TLG Peterbilt’s 6th Dealer of the Year award, adding it to their awards in 2015, 2009, 2006, 2003 and 1998. TLG also expanded its footprint again in 2020 to Dunn, NC where it opened its 21st location and Peterbilt's 400th in history.
