Conway Beam Truck Group opens Volvo, Mack Trucks dealer facility near Buffalo, NY

Volvo Trucks North America and Mack Trucks dealership Conway Beam Truck Group has opened a new 75,000 sq.-ft. location in West Seneca, New York.

The facility is located on 25 acres at 1500 North America Drive. It features 51 service bays, including three compressed natural gas bays, a separate wash bay and an overhead crane. With 10,000 square feet of parts warehouse space, the dealership now offers approximately $1 million in parts inventory, the OEMs say. The group invested $16.2 million in this expansion of its presence in western New York.

In addition to expanding in size after previously leasing a smaller facility in the area, the new location also features several enhanced driver amenities, the company says. These include a covered service canopy for check-in, short- and long-term parking spaces available to rent, lighting and cameras for added security, and two designated office areas available to lease. There is also a driver’s lounge with reclining theater seats, a work station, and bathroom and shower facilities, among other upgrades.

The West Seneca facility has 18 full-time technicians, including eight master technicians. The shop also features heated shop flooring, two employee lounges and added natural light in the expanded space.
