MHC Kenworth officially opened its new dealership in Topeka, Kan., after undergoing construction to create a new building designed with green technology.
The Topeka location is now conveniently located just off Interstate 70, and offers a full-service dealership.
In addition to the new, 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, as branches in Odessa, Texas, Oklahoma City, Okla., and Jonesboro, Ark., also embrace similar initiatives. MHC continues to build and renovate its locations with green technology in mind.
