The new facility combines the dealer's parts-only store with a repair shop, which have both been remodeled into a 9,000 square-foot full-service dealership located on more than 6 acres adjacent to U.S. Route 30, five miles east of U.S. Route 81.
The dealership's service department has a 7-bay service shop and offers Kenworth, PACCAR engine, and Cummins warranty service. The service department also has a truck steam bay. The well-stocked parts department has more than 3,000 square feet of parts storage and parts outside salesmen to keep the maintenance shops of local fleets supplied with the parts they need.
"We've been in the community of Columbus for 14 years with our parts-only facility," said John Hanna, Sahling Kenworth - York principal operating manager, who also oversees operations at the Columbus location. "Now that we have acquired the property and the repair shop, we offer local companies a one-stop shop where they can buy their trucks closer to home and get service for them. They don't have to drive 60 miles south to our location in York or 120 miles east to our location in Kearney. It's a real plus for our customers."
A member of the Kenworth dealer network for more than 37 years, Sahling Kenworth-Columbus is located at 3130 E. 23rd Street. The dealership is open from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to noon Saturday. The phone number is 402-563-0255 or toll-free at 1-888-399-4645.
