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.
