Inland has moved its Prince George dealership into their new 100,000-square-foot facility located at the south end of town, on Highway 97. The new building, located at 7337 Boundary Avenue, sits on 12 acres and is complete with the latest state-of-the-art equipment to service both truck and equipment.
“The challenge in the design for Prince George was that we wanted to accommodate both truck and equipment customers, without having multiple entrances – potentially confusing the customer,” said Boyd McConnachie, Vice President of Business Development. “After months of field input, reworking the layout and many back and forth meetings, the design was finalized and the building turned out fantastic. We could not be happier with the final product as it achieves both efficient customer service flow, as well as a unified staff atmosphere.”
Cutting-edge features for the new facility include: 32 service bays, 27,000 square feet of parts inventory warehousing, an explosion-proof LNG bay, a 25-ton equipment bay crane with 20-foot hook height, a drive-thru down draft paint booth, frame straightening and alignment bays with the latest technology and on-site flywheel resurfacing.
Sustainable building features include energy-efficient LED lighting, super insulated building structures, in-floor perimeter heating, and daylight overhead doors among many others.
The customer lounge features ample plush seating, large screen television, WiFi, workstations and an outdoor seating area.
Rick Bruneski is the General Manager for the Prince George dealership that employs over 100 people in the area.
“I speak for my management team and employees who are proud to work for Inland and in a facility built with ownership hands-on guidance and their continued commitment to reinvest in the company and the communities they serve,” said Bruneski.
To celebrate the new facility, Inland will be hosting a grand opening event on May 13, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The large-scale event will include food, games and vendor giveaways.
Inland’s Prince George location is open seven days a week with service hours between 7 a.m. to midnight on Monday to Friday and 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The phone number is 250-562-8171.
For over 65 years, Inland has served the British Columbia heavy truck and equipment industry. They are a dealer for Kenworth, Tigercat, Link-Belt and Case Construction products.
