TLG History - Claire Larson, Founder of TLG, started his career selling Peterbilt trucks in Sioux Falls, South Dakota in 1981. Claire, and his wife, Margaret Larson, opened their first Peterbilt Dealership in 1987. Thus starting the legacy of The Larson Group - a Peterbilt Dealer Group.
Since TLG's birth as a Peterbilt dealer, the company has experienced tremendous growth. TLG started with just a small rented facility in Springfield, MO and has grown to nine full-service dealerships, and five standalone parts locations and service centers, throughout Missouri, Arkansas, Illinois, Ohio, and Kentucky. When the company first started they had a total of three employees; two salesmen and one staff member at their satellite office in Joplin, MO. TLG now proudly employs over 700 individuals at 13 Truck locations and five John Deere Dealerships. The dealer network spans from Western Arkansas to Eastern Ohio.
What were the key elements behind this robust growth? "The biggest factor in our company's success is people," explains Glenn Larson. "The people we employ are the first ingredient, and the people we have the opportunity to develop business relationships with, are the second."
Customer service is the number one job in this company. Everyone from the top down is committed to providing quality products and services that surpass our clients' expectations.
Close family ties have contributed a great deal to TLG's success. Four of the Larson's sons are currently active in the day-to-day operations of the company. Each of the boys work shoulder-to-shoulder with the other employees of the company and are willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done.
All employees participate in a quality-management system based on the following principles:
And respond to customers, employees, and suppliers.
Quality work through a proactive process of continuous improvement and employee training.
In the timely delivery of goods and services.
Many of TLG businesses have been awarded prestigious awards:
