Topeka, Kan., April 2, 2013 — MHC Kenworth officially opened its new truck dealership in Topeka, Kan., on April 1, 2013, after on-going construction to create a new building designed with green technology and to accommodate the needs of its customers.

The Topeka location is now conveniently located just off Interstate 70, and offers a full-service dealership at 209 MacVicar Avenue, with plans to extend hours of operation.

"It's exciting to be able to offer MHC customers a new location to meet all their needs," said Topeka Branch Manager Jacob Weeks. "In the past, customers have had to go to various locations – now they can get what they need all in one place."

Carrying on MHC’s long-standing mission of providing the best-in-class service and employee work environment, the need to expand was imperative. The construction comes with an exciting, impressive list of green initiatives and architectural advances.

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 superior insulation. Topeka is the fourth MHC dealership utilizing green technology, as branches in Odessa, Texas, Oklahoma City, Jonesboro, Ark., also embrace similar initiatives. MHC continues to build and renovate its locations with green technology in mind.

"We are thrilled with the outcome of the new facilities and are proud that MHC is using sustainable technology to decrease our carbon footprint,” Murphy-Hoffman Company CEO Tim Murphy said.

Located across 11 states, MHC is a network of over 90 locations, including 55 heavy and medium-duty truck dealers, 36 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. Through its formal quality program, MHC delivers excellent service to its customers and maintains ISO 9001 certification.
