Campbell Freightliner is on track to complete construction of a new location in South Brunswick, N.J. in August, which will culminate the consolidation of two Edison and one South Plainfield location.
“The facilities are currently separated by six or seven miles,” Scott Campbell, president and CEO of the Campbell companies, said of his desire to bring all the locations under one roof. “Sometimes, we couldn’t get to the other buildings when we probably really wanted to. Six or seven miles traffic can take 30 minutes or longer in this traffic. We spent a lot of down time travelling between the facilities. Now we can just walk down the hallway.”
Campbell says the new site will house a fire truck dealership – Campbell Supply – and Campbell Freightliner.
The entire 16.2 acre site will be covered with concrete and include driver amenities such as a laundromat, cafeteria, driver’s lounge and an on-site barber two days per week.
One hundred ceiling-mounted hose reels are the framework of a state-of-the-art oil and air delivery system throughout the dealership’s 39 service stalls.
The 92,000 square foot building includes a 27,000 square foot parts facility, 13 delivery vehicles that cover three states and two sifts of 40 service techs.
Campbell’s new site will be one of the only dealerships located along New Jersey’s heavily trafficked turnpike, with 700 feet of frontage northbound and convenient access from the northwest corridor.
The facility is scheduled to open in August and the company plans a grand opening in October.
