Whayne Supply Digs Kentucky Facility

Construction Equipment Guide

After several months of extensive construction activity along North 8th Street in Paducah, KY, Whayne Supply Company moved into a newly constructed facility.

In Paducah since 1937, Whayne’s former branch consisted of an office building, repair shop and several detached buildings. This new, two-story 28,000-square-foot building will contain administrative and sales offices, parts counter and warehouse, and a large service facility designed to repair the largest pieces of Caterpillar equipment. It also features separate buildings housing a 2,000-square- foot track shop and a 5,100-square-foot wash building for the cleaning of heavy equipment. The wash building features a state-of-the-art filter system for water recycling.

The facility also houses Americon — the Cat Rental Store, a relatively new Whayne division that rents small equipment and machinery to area contractors.

“We’ve built this new facility with the future in mind,” said Dick Litton, branch operations manager. “Our customer base in Paducah and the surrounding area has steadily grown, and this new construction is our response to that growth and anticipation of future growth.”

The new service shop increased area for earthmoving equipment repair and more space for large, on-highway truck service. There are also dedicated service bays for the rebuilding of hydraulic cylinders and component repair such as fuel systems and cylinder heads.

The second floor of the main building has a lounge for truck drivers, showers, lunch room and conference room. Much of the second floor remains undeveloped, slated for future expansion.

“This is a first-class facility,” said Bill Pullen, Whayne Supply’s president. “We literally had the opportunity to design it from the ground up with input from many of our managers and employees. The result is a modern operation designed around our customer’s current and future needs.”

The old main office and service building will demolished to make way for parking and equipment display along North 8th Street.
