Arrow Truck Sales Expands Locations, Moves Facilities
KANSAS CITY, MO – Arrow Truck Sales Inc., North America’s leading source of pre-owned heavy and medium-duty trucks, has announced the relocation of its Los Angeles, CA store and the opening of new satellite retail locations in both their Chicago, IL and Tampa, FL markets.
According to Carl Heikel, Arrow’s President and CEO, these moves were strategic in nature. “In each of these markets, we were looking for greater visibility and more convenient access to our retail locations. Following a comprehensive review of business demographics in each of these markets, we determined these actions were in the best interest of our customers and our company.”
Effective July 1, Arrow’s Whittier, CA store was re-located to 7433 E. Telegraph Road in Montebello, CA into a newly-renovated location. “We’re now much more centrally-located in an industrial area just minutes away from downtown L.A., “ said Kevin Cassens, Branch Manager of the new Montebello store. Kevin added, “The new store offers convenient access to Interstate 5 and is located between Slausen Avenue and the Garfield Exit.”
Lee Wallace, Sr. V.P., Sales & Marketing continued, “We’re very excited about this recent move and are looking forward to serving new customers in the area.”
With continued growth at Arrow’s Bolingbrook, IL location, the company is planning to open a second, satellite store in the Chicago, IL market at 2090 N. Manheim Road in the Melrose park area just three miles from O’Hare International Airport. According to Arrow’s Lee Wallace, this new location should come on-line on or before October 1st. “The Chicagoland area has been a vibrant market for us for some time now, so expanding our presence there just made good business sense. Kevin Buehner will continue to serve as Branch Manager for both locations,” said Wallace.
In addition to its 301 Highway location in Tampa, FL, Arrow has announced the opening of a second Tampa store at 6025 Adamo Drive. This new location is centrally-located within the Tampa Market. “We saw an opportunity to re-locate to an area already served by several other truck dealers,” said Wallace. “Since truck buyers already frequent this area, we’ve simply made it more convenient for customers to shop Arrow’s extensive inventory. Brock Whetstone will continue to serve as Branch Manager for both Tampa locations,” said Wallace
“The opening of new retail stores, and the moving of others to more visible locations, is in keeping with our continued growth strategy in key markets across the country,” said Carl Heikel. “It’s really all about serving our customers more efficiently and conveniently.”
