The manufacturer recently increased its service capabilities in the Northeast region of the U.S. with the expansion of the Young Truck Sales facility in Canton, Ohio. The full-service dealership includes 30 service bays and $800,000 in parts inventory. A separate on-site building dedicated to servicing natural gas-powered vehicles is the first of its kind open to retail customers in Ohio. The dealership invested $4 million in the expansion.
Göran Nyberg, president of Volvo Trucks North American Sales & Marketing, stated: “Young Truck Sales added 16 service bays, increasing capacity by 100 percent. Eight of the new bays are located in the natural gas facility for a total of 12 bays in that building. The facility is certified for natural gas, cryogenic gases, diesel and gasoline. Young Truck Sales is the first independent authorized as a warranty provider in the U.S. for Agility Fuel Systems.”
“We are proud to start our 60th year by unveiling our renovated and expanded Volvo dealership location,” added Craig Young, president of Young Truck Sales. “Young Volvo’s mission statement is to ‘make our customers successful,’ and we feel that having the service and repair support for our customers adopting natural gas power will be an integral part of us fulfilling our commitment.”
