Rush Enterprises: Our Story

A Vision Fulfilled

Founder W. Marvin Rush started Rush Enterprises in 1965 with a single GMC truck dealership in Houston, Texas. But his dream was to build an integrated commercial dealership network spanning the southern U.S. His ambitious vision steered our company through the early years of growth and new frontiers and has inspired our company vision ever since.

Today, Rush Enterprises has transformed into not only the largest network of commercial vehicle dealerships in North America but is the total solutions provider to the commercial vehicle industry. We offer a complete portfolio of innovative products and services through our dealerships and related businesses. We’ve built our business and our reputation on solutions that keep our customers, and global economy, up and running.
