Construction of a new Tri-State Mack dealership at 8901 Diamond Drive in North Little Rock is expected to begin this week and wrap up in about a year, according to co-owner Jim Maddox.

Maddox said the project is estimated to cost about $13 million, and that the new dealership would be the largest in size of the Memphis-based Mack and Volvo truck dealer's nine locations in four states — Tennessee, Mississippi, Missouri and Arkansas. Maddox said the company hopes it will also do the most business once it opens.

Maddox said Tri-State is moving from its present 30,000 square foot Little Rock location at 4614 Thibault Road to an industrial park south of Interstate 440 in the adjacent City of North Little Rock. The new location will be between 85,000 and 90,000 square feet in size, more than double the current facility.

The present Little Rock location has about 40 employees, and Maddox said the new dealership could employ 50-55.

Century Construction of Tupelo, Mississippi, is the contractor for the project.

"In our business, it's important to build good visibility and be close to truck stops, so we're right there at that Galloway exit where there's two truck stops," Maddox said. "There's good visibility. It's just a great location…We are very excited, very excited." 

Tri-State Mack was founded in 1945 by F.A. Maddox, Senior. His son, the legendary F.A. "Judge" Maddox, Junior, made their Mack distributorship one of the most successful in the nation. His sons, Rod and Jim Maddox, operate the company today, a.k.a. Tri-State Truck Center (www.tristatetruck.com). It’s nine dealer locations in Tennessee, Mississippi, Missouri and Arkansas employ over 250 people.
