Tri-State Peterbilt sold to Georgia automotive group

Jason Cannon April 8, 2013

Georgia-based Prince Automotive has acquired two Tri-State Peterbilt locations from Beck Motor Company.

According to Prince management, the businesses will be branded Peterbilt of Albany and Peterbilt of Tifton.

The acquisition adds to Prince’s existing line of heavy- and medium-duty trucks, increasing the company’s market share of trucks on the highway, Prince officials said.

Prince currently sells Volvo trucks from a truck center in Tifton. With the addition of Peterbilt, Prince officials expect the two locations to service nearly one-third of the trucks on the highway.

Both locations will house service and parts departments.

All Albany personnel will be retained, management said, and about six new jobs at both locations are expected to be created.
