DSU Peterbilt & GM, Inc. DSU logo-horz2 cropped

When Diesel Service Unit (DSU) opened in 1945, we didn’t have much in the way of assets. In fact, our first shop was set up under a tarp hung from a telephone pole. Aside from fresh Oregon air, about all we could offer our early customers was the 30 years combined experience of our three young mechanics on trucks and diesel engines.

Today, DSU sells Peterbilt, GMC and Isuzu trucks, as well as parts for all makes. Our service technicians are well trained by each of the manufacturers and have years of experience.

Our employees enjoy excellent benefits that are the talk of the industry. DSU’s philosophy is to promote from within. We treat our employees well. Most are long term with an average of over 11 years work experience with us. Now, with approximately 200 employees, we feel we are keeping up with the founders’ idea of treating customers and their needs as if we were customers too. This great idea has resulted in our having one of the best reputations in the trucking industry. Our customers consistently rank us tops in all categories for customer service.  See what it’s like to deal with the best. You’ll be glad you did.
