Both dealerships, formerly owned by Utility Trailers of Indianapolis, Inc., doing business as Utility/Peterbilt, officially begin operating as JX Peterbilt – Fort Wayne and JX Peterbilt – Indianapolis on Oct 10. Between the two new locations, JX Enterprises gains responsibility of more than 48 counties and nearly half of Indiana. Additionally, the acquisition includes the dealerships’ assets and expands the company’s JX PacLease rental and lease fleet to approximately 800 vehicles.
“These two new locations allow us to extend our best in class products and support more comprehensively throughout the Midwest, providing customers with more convenient access and greater choices,” says Eric Jorgensen, president and CEO of JX Enterprises. “We continue to strategically grow our business, adding locations, expanding our lineup of services and further positioning our company as a complete solutions provider for the transportation industry.”
The company also said it plans to retain nearly all 90 of the current employees of the two dealerships.
Highlights of the new locations include:

In addition to the two largest cities in Indiana, the new territories are home to customers engaged in a wide variety of applications which we are well equipped to support through vehicle sales and aftermarket support,” says Kurt Jorgensen, JX Enterprises’ vice president of sales.
