Fyda Freightliner Columbus marks grand opening

Fyda Freightliner Columbus marks grand opening

Fyda Freightliner Columbus held its Building Dedication and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Friday, Sept. 30, 2022. The newly relocated dealership is now at 2700 NE Plain City Georgesville Road in West Jefferson, at exit 85 off I-70. The event was attended by almost 40 vendor companies and 500+ customers, vendors, and employees. 

In addition, there were several members of the Madison County Chamber of Commerce, West Jefferson Fire and Sheriff’s departments and other local dignitaries in attendance.

During the Grand Opening, Tim Fyda, president and CEO, Fyda Freightliner, dedicated the new building to Matt Powell, the general contractor whose vision has brought to life four of the Fyda locations, as well as renovations for the other three locations. Powell died in a tragic accident in January 2022 and was unable to see this project to fruition. His wife Robin cut the ribbon during the ceremony with their three children standing with her.

In its former location, Fyda Freightliner Columbus occupied five buildings that housed truck sales, parts and service teams, a body shop, detailing service, its vehicle finance partner Highway Commercial Services, and its corporate employees.

The new 180,000-sq. ft. facility combines all five buildings into one, to provide more convenient and seamless service for our customers. The property houses more service and body shop bays, a larger parts inventory, provides more parking options and expanded capabilities and amenities such as gated parking, trailer parking, detailing services, a four-acre pond stocked with several types of fish, an expanded driver’s lounge with televisions and a pool table, and more.

The building also features 3500 solar panels (approximately a 1.4-megawatt installation) on the roof that will produce more electricity than the dealership needs and will feed the excess power back into the power grid.

The dealership still offers 24/7 parts and service, as well as regular hours for body shop and detailing services.
