Penn-Jersey Machinery announced the opening of a new facility in Staten Island, N.Y.

The Staten Island facility opened on July 1 and is located at 331 Edward Curry Ave., a few minutes from the Goethals Bridge, a location that, according to Jim Fehr, director of customer support, “gives us great exposure to the customers in Staten Island and the New York City market.”

Customers in Staten Island now have access to the full Volvo product line as well as Ingersoll Rand portable power. In addition, the Volvo Road Machinery product line, which includes paving, compaction and milling products, is available for customers in the five boroughs of New York. The new location is staffed by Bob Watt, sales representative of the boroughs; Sean Collins, sales representative of Staten Island; and Victor Jurado in the parts department, who is fluent in both English and Spanish.

“Penn-Jersey Machinery and Volvo CE are extremely excited with our move to Staten Island. This enables us to serve our customers with the right equipment and speeds up the delivery process. If a contractor needs parts it is no longer a trip to New Jersey as we are located just a short distance from any of the major bridges,” Fehr commented.

In addition to the new sales and service options Penn-Jersey Machinery now offers in New York, the company is the exclusive Volvo construction equipment dealer in New Jersey, Eastern Pennsylvania and New Castle, Del. Penn-Jersey Machinery is a part of the Flagler CE Holdings Group, which also includes Flagler Construction Equipment, the exclusive Volvo CE dealer in Florida. The company and its predecessors have been serving the Eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey markets since 1983, offering Volvo construction equipment for sale and rent, as well as product support. Penn-Jersey Machinery operates four main branches in the following markets: Lionville, Pa., Philadelphia, Pa., Deptford, N.J. and Somerville, N.J.
