Kässbohrer has announced that it is to move to a new facility in New England, US, having outgrown its current property in Lewiston, Maine. The facility has been designed specifically for the storage, sales and service of snow groomers and parts.
Construction commenced in the early months of 2018. Regional Branch Manager, Jim Bear, anticipates the facility to be completed and operational by August 2018. The company hopes that the new facility will enhance its ability to store, service and quickly fill parts orders for its New England customers.
One of the largest incentives for building a new facility was space, as annual sales volume of PistenBully snow grooming vehicles has steadily increased while a significant percentage of new PistenBully machines are stored in the New England facility. The new facility will be 20 500 ft2, 7000 ft2 larger than the current one. Additionally, the new facility will have three times the amount of outdoor storage space as the current property (2.5 acres more).
Regional Sales Manager, Casey Stankowski, said that the new facility "will make our jobs easier because we will have a shop designed specifically for the flow of servicing and working on snow cats. Also our new parts area will allow us to move materials in and out more efficiently. It will allow us to keep more parts in inventory."
Sales Representative, Josh Lempert, said: "We will be able to organise machines by model and region. We will now have sufficient space for loading and unloading trucks and containers."
