Ed, Paige and Eddy Stahl, Dealer Principals of Stahl Peterbilt in Canada, and Bob Hunter, Dealer Principal of Hunter Peterbilt, were honored during Peterbilt's annual dealer meeting.
The Stahls, who own three Peterbilt dealerships in Edmonton, Grande Prairie, and Fort McMurray in Alberta, Canada received the award for their Edmonton location. Since joining the Peterbilt dealer network in 2003, the Stahls have consistently provided excellent customer service that has resulted in year-over-year increased sales. Their philosophy of meeting and exceeding customer expectations has fueled the dealership's success.
The Stahl's Edmonton facility is one of the premier truck dealerships in North America. In 2005, they relocated to a new 75,000-square-foot building, which includes an indoor truck display large enough for two trucks, 2,200 square feet of parts retail display area, 25 service bays and an 8-bay body shop.
Hunter Peterbilt was selected as the medium-duty winner based on their consistent support of the Peterbilt Medium Duty product throughout the year, resulting in increased sales volume and market share for Peterbilt. The Hunters' exceptional marketing efforts, strong customer relationships, and utilization of the St. Therese, Canada manufacturing facility all contributed to their selection as this year's Peterbilt Medium Duty Dealer of the Year.
The Hunter family has owned and operated Hunter Peterbilt since 1984. They have 12 locations in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York.
