FRANKFORT, Ky. (June 2, 2015) – A Glasgow truck assembler plans to nearly triple its workforce. Gov. Steve Beshear today announced that D & B Trucks and Equipment Sales is expanding its operations in Barren County.

D & B Trucks, which builds and sells truck gliders, plans to add up to 50 new jobs and invest $575,000 into the project.

“The evolution of D & B Trucks and Equipment in Glasgow is a great success story in south central Kentucky,” said Gov. Beshear. “Over the past 14 years, the company has blossomed into a booming truck glider assembly business. I congratulate D & B for this expansion and for creating dozens of jobs in the region.”

D & B purchases old or wrecked semi-trucks, deconstructs them to the framing and re-assembles them on a new chassis and shell with rebuilt engines, transmissions and clutches. These gliders are also customized with more user-friendly components than brand new trucks, which give them a competitive edge.

Because of high demand, D & B plans to add 9,600 square feet to its current 15,440-square-foot operation on Burkesville Road. The expansion, which will be completed this fall, will allow to the company to more than double its monthly production.
