Peterbilt Motors Company is an American truck manufacturer. It was founded in 1939 and has its headquarters in Denton, Texas. Peterbilt also has a manufacturing plant in Quebec, Canada. In 1958 ownership moved to Paccar (Pacific Car & Foundry Co) when the shareowners did not agree with Ida Peterman, the wife of the founder.
There are several photos of Peterbilt based fire appliances (mostly pumpers / engines) on the Fire Engine Photos web site.
