James “Carl” Smith cofounded Champlain Truck Center in November 1990. In 1991 we became exclusively a proud Peterbilt dealership. Today we are known as Champlain Peterbilt. In 1994, Carl became the sole owner. Starting with only 15 employees in the beginning, we have since grown to 45 employees. We opened up a 24/7 truck stop called Fuel Mart and are currently the only Peterbilt dealership to have one. When Fuel Mart opened we had 1 pump. There are now 4 pumps with an upcoming change to completely remodel with new tanks and pumps. As of 2016 we are proud to sell Tremcar as well as the Peterbilt Brand. In the near future, continue to look for expansion within our AOR.
