Mitsubishi Fuso expands dealership footprint in Georgia

Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America recently added a second location for its Peach State Truck Center dealership in Norcross GA.

The new location will provide sales, service and parts for Fuso trucks, and the secondary location in Forest Park GA will remain a service point for Fuso trucks, the company said.

Peach State Truck Centers, with more than 40 years of sales and service experience, boasts multiple locations throughout central Georgia and Alabama. The dealership has been selling Fuso trucks from its specialty vehicles location in Forest Park, but, because of location and customer convenience, the dealership will shift Fuso sales activities to the Peach State Norcross Freightliner location. This move will better support Fuso truck owners operating in the Atlanta metro area, Fuso said.

This location is one of the largest of the Peach State dealerships, is the headquarters and is recognized as an elite support location by Freightliner trucks, a sister brand of Mitsubishi Fuso.

“Atlanta is a very important market for Fuso, and we are proud to partner with an outstanding dealership location in Norcross,” said Justin Palmer, president and CEO of Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America. “The Peach State Truck family already is successful with the Fuso product in Forest Park, and we are pleased with their decision to move sales operations closer into Atlanta, a win-win for our customers.”

Peach State Truck Centers Norcross will offer all makes and models of Fuso products, including its newest gasoline-powered truck, Fuso said. This expansion of product will complement Class 6 and 7 Freightliner vocational trucks and Freightliner Sprinter vans already sold at the location. Fuso offers a complete lineup of Class 3 to 5 medium-duty trucks in diesel and gasoline powertrains. These trucks can handle payloads up to 12,490 pounds in the Class 5 diesel-powertrain model.

“Fuso trucks, especially the all-new FE GAS models, have done well at our Forest Park location, and we know that more Fuso customers operate closer into the city which is why we are expanding our Fuso operations into our main Norcross location,” said Rick Reynolds, president and owner principal at Peach State Truck Centers.

“We can now pride ourselves on having Daimler brands representing each class of commercial truck business.”
