The company built a new facility in LaVergne, TN, just outside Nashville, on of 8 acres (3.2 ha) of property, boasting a six-bay service shop, fully stocked parts department and sales. “We are proud to represent what we feel are some of the top-of-the-line manufacturers in our industry,” Guinn said.
