PARMA, Ohio -- Valley Freightliner, Sterling and Western Star Trucks has relocated operations to 10901 Brookpark Road in Parma, bringing 50 jobs - 49 of them full-time - with a payroll of just under $3 million.

Previously located in Brook Park, Valley Freightliner chose Parma after its previous dealership was destroyed by fire.

“We are very pleased to welcome Valley Freightliner here and to offer economic development tools to help them grow jobs in Parma,” said Mayor Tim DeGeeter. “We believe the owners will find Parma a great place to do business. The added bonus is that it will fill a two-year vacancy at the former Spitzer dealership site.”

In addition to the 50 new jobs, Valley Freightliner plans on adding 10 more positions over the next two years.

Valley Freightliner was created in 1999 and offers all class 5-8 Freightliner and Western Star products. In addition to a full parts department, there is a staff of certified transmissions technicians to service Cat, Cummins, Detroit Diesel and Alison products.

“My number one focus is on job retention and job creation here in Parma,” said DeGeeter. “What’s important is opening direct lines of communication, helping eliminate red tape and finding ways to keep Parma an attractive and affordable place to do business. This a perfect example.”
