Peterbilt of Bristol Becomes Authorized East Trailer Dealer

Peterbilt of Bristol, Inc., serving a nine-county region in the Bristol, Virginia, area, was recently named an authorized dealership for East Manufacturing, offering the company's full line of flatbeds, dump trailers and accessories.

"East has a good name and a strong, loyal following," said Rick Boardwine, dealership president. "They've been around for more than 40 years, and their quality products have stood the test of time. It just made sense to add the East line to compliment the Peterbilt trucks we sell."

He added that the dealership can offer customers individual products or a full truck and trailer package.

With 31 employees in a 27,000-square-foot facility on approximately 3.5 acres, Peterbilt of Bristol has a 22-bay repair shop and also builds custom trucks. Established in 2002, Peterbilt of Bristol is located at 33392 Lee Highway, P.O. Box 160, Glade Spring, Virginia, 24340 and can be reached at 866-669-2511. Boardwine noted that the company does a majority of its business via its Web site at, selling to customers as far away as Maine, Florida, Oregon, California, Canada and Puerto Rico.
