Great Dane Trailers has broken ground on a new branch facility in Dallas TX that will offer area customers state-of-the art service and double the capacity of the old branch location. With construction already underway, the new site is expected to open for business in early 2005.

Situated on 18 acres of the Southport Industrial Park, the new 40,000-square-foot facility will be modeled after Great Dane's Charlotte NC branch, which opened in July 2003. Like that location, a high-tech paint booth will be installed, and an expanded parts warehouse will be integrated into the structure. Additionally, Dallas is poised to become the newest Great Dane used-trailer regional center, accepting a high volume of trades and becoming a distribution hub for previously owned trailers.

With twice the yard space and shop capacity of the old location at 4415 Irving Boulevard, the new site was selected for its location in an expanding section of southern Dallas. This site can be found on Port Boulevard just off Interstate 20 at the Bonnieview exit. Great Dane will maintain the Irving Boulevard location as a parts and service facility.
