Company ownership and staff gather to cut the ribbon marking the official start of the grand opening celebration of the new JCB of Arkansas facility in Little Rock and to celebrate the 40th anniversary of their Lift Truck Service Center Inc. business.
JCB of Arkansas held a Grand Opening March 27 of its new state-of-the-art facility south of downtown Little Rock.
Situated on nine acres beside I-30, the new facility boasts more than 27,000 sq. ft. of space. The facility also houses Lift Truck Service Center Inc. Concurrent with the grand opening of JCB of Arkansas, Lift Truck Service Center celebrated its 40th anniversary in the lift truck business. More than 600 people turned out to enjoy the day.
Manufacturer representatives from all lines sold by JCB of Arkansas and Lift Truck Service Center Inc. lent their support to the event, including a huge contingency of JCB corporate representatives from Savannah, Ga. An incredible array of prizes was given away throughout the day including a Benelli shotgun and the grand prize of a free one-day guided fishing trip on Lake Greason, which was won by Dan Clifton of Little Rock Wastewater.
Popular local caterer Young’s Catering offered guests catfish and chicken and all imaginable side items and ended the meal with fried apple and peach pies. This was one of the best lunches of the day in Little Rock.
In a brief speech to show his appreciation for those who turned out for the event, JCB of Arkansas’s Mike Morehead said, “We could not have reached such great levels of success without the dedicated service of our employees, our great customers and our hard-working vendors.”
