M&K Truck Centers welcomed well over 200 guests last week to the grand opening celebration of their newest dealership, M&K Indianapolis North.
Clients and friends were invited to tour the facility at 1665 S County Road, which is conveniently located on I-65 at exit 158, to have lunch, and meet the staff for the Indy North area. Executives from Mack Trucks and Volvo Trucks North America were also on-site to answer questions, give facility tours, and talk about their trucks, parts, and services.
The half-day event kicked off with a warm welcome from the Clinton County Chamber of Commerce and local elected officials before the ribbon cutting ceremony. Guests were then treated to a special appearance by Americas Road Team and their custom Volvo VNL780, Interstate One, an interactive mobile classroom used to demonstrate the importance of highway safety. Two-time Indianapolis 500 champion, Al Unser Jr. also made an appearance, taking pictures with guests and signing autographs.
The grand opening event provided visitors a chance to learn more about M&K, the brands they represent and to see for themselves the latest technologies M&K offers. Additionally, representatives from M&K Trailer Centers were there to introduce guests to their lineup of Mac trailers.
M&K’s Indy North dealership is a complete renovation and expansion of an existing facility that provides 30,000 total square feet of available space. On the tour of the facility, guests walked through 15,000 square feet dedicated to service, 15 service bays used for servicing trucks, and 15,000 square feet of space shared by office staff and the parts department—which houses an extensive inventory of Mack and Volvo parts. Combined with locations in Indianapolis and Kokomo, M&K offers one of the largest parts inventories in Indiana; while a dedicated fleet of delivery trucks throughout Central Indiana ensure parts get to customers quickly. The dealership currently employees over 20 people, and expects to grow to a staff of 30 before the end of the year.
