Honnen Equipment, the John Deere construction equipment dealer in Colorado, Utah, Wyoming and southern Idaho, celebrated the grand opening of its brand new 60,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art full service facility at 1380 S. Distribution Drive in Salt Lake City, Utah, on Sept. 18.

During the event there were building tours through the parts warehouse, shop and rebuild area as well as an equipment rodeo contest, vendor display area and product demonstrations.

The fully stocked, expanded parts warehouse and increased capacity service shop and rebuild area will provide a more extensive range of services to the construction, paving and landscaping industries in Salt Lake City and the surrounding areas.

“We had a great turnout for this event and we look forward to continuing our commitment to partner with and provide support for all our customers in the Utah market.” said Mark Honnen, Honnen Equipment president.
