Heavy-duty: Despite likely inbound recession, factors continue to dull sharp truck downturn
Volvo Trucks North America dealership Northwest Equipment Sales has opened a new location near the Tri-Cities, a metropolitan area comprising the greater Kennewick, Richland and Pasco communities in southeast Washington.
The facility, located at 171 Gateway Road in Burbank, Wash., marks the fourth overall site owned by the dealership.
The 30,000-sq.-ft. facility—situated on 10 acres off U.S. Highway 12 in Burbank—features four drive-through service bays and an end bay, with the ability to accommodate up to 15 trucks. The dealership currently has eight service technicians and expects to have 18 employees total by the end of the year, the company says. It is also offering $250,000 in parts inventory, with plans to increase that amount over the next few months.
