Northwest Equipment Sales, a Volvo Trucks dealer, expanded into Burbank, Washington, to serve Kennewick, Richland, and Pasco. This is the dealership’s fourth site.
The 30,000-square-foot facility is on 10 acres and has 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. It is also offering $250,000 in parts inventory, with plans to increase that amount over the next few months.
“We are pleased that we were able to move forward with opening our new facility in one of the fastest growing areas in Washington, despite the challenges created by Covid-19,” said Jesse Hibler, VP of operations, in a prepared statement. “We look forward to continuing to deliver the highest level of customer service at all four of our locations.”
Northwest Equipment Sales opened its doors in 1981 in Twin Falls, Idaho, as a used truck facility. Since then, the company has purchased a Volvo Trucks franchise and expanded to additional locations in Boise, Idaho, in 1995 (also its corporate headquarters) and Hermiston, Oregon, in 2007.
