MHC Kenworth opened its new Topeka, Kan. dealership this week.
Topeka Branch Manager Jacob Weeks says the new full-service location consolidates several trips to multiple stores that customers in the region previously had to make. The new building was designed with green technology as part of MHC’s ongoing green efforts.
In addition to the energy-efficient geothermal temperature control features, the 35,000-square-foot facility in Topeka maintains translucent hollow-core overhead doors in the service department to allow natural light into the building and provide insulation.
Topeka is the fourth MHC dealership utilizing green technology, following branches in Odessa, Texas, Oklahoma City, Okla., and Jonesboro, Ark.
“We are thrilled with the outcome of the new facilities and are proud that MHC is using sustainable technology to decrease our carbon footprint,” Murphy-Hoffman Company CEO Tim Murphy said.
Located across 11 states, MHC is a network of more than 90 locations, including 55 heavy and medium-duty truck dealers, 36 MHC Truck Leasing locations, four Carrier Transicold locations and a wholly-owned finance company, MHC Financial Services. MHC features Kenworth, Hino, Ford, Volvo and Isuzu trucks. Through its formal quality program, MHC delivers excellent service to its customers and maintains ISO 9001 certification.
