Augusta-based Matthews Motors has become an authorised Dennis Eagle dealer providing sales and aftermarket services for the ground-breaking ProView truck.
The family-owned business has been operating for more than 30 years and is centered on a 42-bay service repair shop with full sales facilities. It has already established an outstanding reputation as a one-stop shop for truck sales and repairs in the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA) on the borders of Georgia and South Carolina.
The company joins a network of dealerships across North America selling the ProView and providing outstanding support to our customers.
“We are extremely excited to become part of the Dennis Eagle family,” said Bob Matthews, CEO of Matthews Motors.
“Dennis Eagle is the industry leader for quality and durability with some of the most innovative refuse vehicle chassis designs in the industry.”
The ProView has been designed for refuse collection operations in the North American market by Dennis Eagle and is built at its new factory in Summerville, South Carolina.
It offers outstanding safety features including a low-entry cab and outstanding vision for the driver with excellent space and comfort for up to three crew.
This will be the first heavy-duty truck in Matthews Motors’ inventory, adding to the medium-sized trucks it already distributes. But the company believes it not only has excellent credentials for the refuse collection industry but also for applications beyond that.
Aaron Matthews, an owner and Chief Financial Officer of the company, said: “The cab on the ProView line offers excellent visibility, while the chassis has been improved for greater strength and safety. It is powered by a 9L Cummins engine for outstanding performance and this will be a really popular vehicle.
“We have a couple of demonstration trucks coming in and customers really need to see them for themselves. If they call us, we can arrange a demo. We are already reaching out to body builders and we’ll also be taking the truck to shows in the months ahead.”
Interim President of Dennis Eagle Inc Geoff Rigg said: “Matthews Motors fits perfectly into our expanding network of dealerships.
“The company is well established but always looking to improve what it offers to customers. It has already established a reputation for providing excellent service and this, combined with the outstanding performance, safety and durability of the ProView, is the hallmark of Dennis Eagle.”
