SAN ANTONIO, Feb. 11, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rush Enterprises, Inc.

We also augmented our solutions capabilities, completed expansion projects on existing facilities and acquired 5 dealer groups, adding 29 dealership locations to our Rush Truck Centers network," said Rush.

"I am proud of our performance in 2013 and extremely grateful to all our employees who contributed to the Company's success this year, especially given our rapid pace of growth. We welcomed more than 1,300 new employees to the Company in 2013 and look forward to serving new and existing customers across the country with excellence," added Rush.

Continued Growth

"2013 was a year of growth. We expanded the Rush Truck Centers network to 107 locations in 20 states across the country. Our goal to keep our customers up and running drives our growth strategy.
