Mack Trucks Inc has begun construction for its new subsidiary, Kansas City Mack Sales and Service, on NE 45th Street and Randolph Road in Kansas City MO, just west of Interstate 435. Mack purchased the nearly 10 acres of land for the facility from Hunt Midwest, which will serve as the project developer and designer/build contractor.
Targeted for completion in summer 2001, the 28,000-square-foot facility is expected to house between 400 and 500 new and used power units at any given time. The subsidiary will include an extensive parts department. Until the facility is ready, Mack will continue to serve the area from its distributor location at 3738 Gardner Avenue. This facility is operated by Kansas City Mack Sales & Service, which Mack is entering into an agreement to purchase.
