Coastline Equipment, a John Deere Construction Equipment dealer in Bakersfield, Calif., has begun construction on a major addition to its service facility. A groundbreaking on a new 10,000-sq.-ft. (929 sq m) service shop took place March 10.
The expansion will double the capacity of Coastline’s repair facility. The new shop will be state-of-the-art and will be capable of handling significantly larger equipment models.
The facility will be located adjacent to the current shop at 4252 Saco Road, near the intersection of Highway 99 and Merle Haggard Dr.
“The last 10 years have resulted in solid year to year sales growth to the point where Coastline Equipment has a market share that exceeds 30 percent,” Coastline Bakersfield Manager Joe Harrison said. “While other local dealers may be experiencing tough times in this current economic slowdown, we are making this million dollar investment to assure our customers that we will have the service capacity to efficiently handle their service needs, both now and in the foreseeable future.”
Additional service technicians will be hired to staff this new facility.
Coastline Equipment is an authorized John Deere Construction Equipment dealer in Southern California with seven additional locations in major market areas.
Superior Construction of Bakersfield is the building contractor for this new facility.
Construction of this building is scheduled to be completed August 2008.
