M&K Truck Centers, Volvo Trucks 2014 Dealer of the Year, announced today that they are opening an additional Volvo and Mack dealership located in Central Indiana. This facility marks M&K’s entrance into the Indiana market with Volvo trucks.
“We couldn’t be happier that Volvo selected M&K to represent them in this central Indiana market. Volvo is the best business partner in the heavy duty truck industry. Their market share growth is a reflection of their innovative engines, transmission, remote diagnostic and fuel economy technologies. Volvo’s commitment to customers and dealers is second to none,” said Ron Meyering, President of M&K Truck Centers. “We will be able to support Frankfort, Lafayette and Kokomo markets for both Volvo and Mack from this new location. The additional dealership is intended to maintain our strong competitive advantage (in the Midwest),” Ron went on to say. The new site, which is easily accessible off I-65 at Hwy 28 in Frankfort, IN, will undergo renovations for the next few months. The 11 acre property purchased formerly housed a Harley Davidson dealership and will have extensive renovations to its 15,000 square foot building including a 15,600 square foot addition. Upon completion the 30,000 square foot facility will sell both Volvo and Mack trucks, offer full service leasing, have 17 truck service bays, and carry an extensive inventory of Volvo and Mack parts.
“Working for a company (M&K Truck Centers) that is doing everything they can to exceed customer expectations is rewarding,” said Tracy Schnitzler, Director of Service Operations at M&K. “We have expanded, re-located, re-modeled, and opened multiple dealerships here in the past few years to better serve our customer’s experience. It’s exciting to be part of the growth at M&K right now,” he stated.
The Frankfort location can be found at 1665 S County Rd 800 W in Frankfort, IN on the north side of I-65. M&K plans to open this location during the 4th quarter this year adding nearly 30 jobs to the local economy. Operating hours are planned to be 6am – 11pm Monday – Friday and 7am – 3pm on Saturdays with a mobile service unit available 24 / 7.
This announcement is following M&K Truck Centers’ previous statements this year with their expanding business. This will be M&K’s second new dealership to open in 2015 following June’s opening of the 70,000 square foot Des Plaines location, in addition to opening M&K Trailer Centers of Grand Rapids and Chicago. Last year they expanded their service department at the Byron Center, Michigan dealership, moved their Holland dealership to a larger facility, and built a new dealership in Kalamazoo, MI. Renovations have also been taking place on their Summit and Alsip facilities in the Chicago area.
