Paccar Parts celebrates its 40th anniversary on May 1, marking four decades in commercial vehicle parts and service.

In 1973, Paccar Parts opened its first parts distribution center in Renton, Washington. Today Paccar Parts’ worldwide network spans 15 PDCs on five continents.

Paccar Parts increased its global reach in the 1990s, expanding to Australia, Mexico and throughout Europe and South America. As the division grew, its focus on technology continued, including an advanced electronic catalog system and groundbreaking inventory-management systems.

The exclusive TRP line of all-makes aftermarket parts was launched in Europe, and has become a worldwide brand.
