MHC Kenworth announced that the newest facility to join the Murphy-Hoffman Company (MHC) dealer network will open its doors in Gainesville, Ga., on June 1. The new location increases the total number of MHC stores in Georgia to three, with existing locations in Mableton and McDonough.
The Gainesville facility, located at Highway 985 and Highway 129 at Exit 22, is 15,000 square feet with 12 service bays and a state-of-the-art drivers’ lounge equipped with a big-screen television. The new location will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to noon Saturday. Gainesville will offer new and used truck sales, and all makes and models parts and service.
“MHC has had Gainesville in mind as a target expansion location since we moved to Georgia in 2004,” says Todd Rice, MHC Kenworth’s Georgia Region vice president. “Our philosophy to support our customers with parts and service near their terminal locations was the driving factor of this decision. We have gained many new customers within a 30-mile radius of Gainesville over the past four years. Likewise, many of our existing MHC carriers haul into the area because it is considered the largest United States city for poultry processing and distribution. Many of these carriers move freight to and from Gainesville without entering the Atlanta metro area. Therefore, this will provide an additional parts and service location for many of our out-of-state customers, as well as better support for the local market.”
Located across 10 states, MHC is a network of more than 60 locations, including 40 heavy-duty and medium-duty truck dealers, 22 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.
