More than 2,500 guests recently attended Franklin Equipment’s Grand Opening of the dealership’s new Columbus superstore, located at 4141 Hamilton Square Blvd. in Groveport, Ohio. The new 65,000 sq. ft. facility features a new car dealership type indoor display area, an extensive parts inventory, fully equipped service bays and a 13 acre accessible equipment lot.

On display and presented in live demonstrations were the latest new construction and agriculture equipment from New Holland, Coyote and Hudson Bros. trailers, JLG aerial equipment, attachments and ground engaging tools from Multiquip, Okada, Paladin, Tamco and Woods, as well as a full line of Wacker Neuson machines.

Along with all of the equipment to review, attendees were treated to dinner and live entertainment from Nashville recording artist Colton James. James’s appearance at the event was co-sponsored by Franklin Equipment and NUCOR Steel. Representatives from NUCOR Steel were on hand at the opening to promote Operation Steel Warrior, a national NUCOR project to benefit wounded veterans. The benefit concert, featuring Colton James, Steel Creek and Fogery Run, was held May 17 at the Marion Fairgrounds Coliseum.
