Foley Equipment, a Caterpillar dealer in Kansas and northwest Missouri, hosted customers, employees, government officials and local supporters and friends at the grand opening of its new Salina facility.
Foley Equipment has proudly served the Salina community since 1956. Construction started on the company's newest location off I-70 on Ohio Street in July of 2017.
“We very much appreciate all the efforts of the city of Salina administration in working with us to make today a reality,” said Chief Executive Officer Ann Konecny. “Our new facility here represents our long-term commitment to being our customers' and employees' first choice.”
Officially opened for business on July 2, the company's 33,000-sq.-ft. site more than doubles the square footage of Foley Equipment's previous location. The new climate-controlled facility offers an expanded parts warehouse and space to service 14 vehicles at one time. The entire facility incorporates state-of-the-art technology to provide an enhanced customer experience.
The new service shop at the Salina facility offers over 23,500 sq. ft. and a 2640 sq. ft. wash bay.
