Coming off a summer-long construction project in Columbus, Nebraska, Sahling Kenworth can now boast a Columbus facility with four additional full-service bays, and an expansive parts warehouse. On hand for the event were Mike Clark, President of CSM Truck, and Eric Bontrager, Director of Parts for CSM Truck. Both Mike and Eric addressed the importance of meeting the needs of valuable customers and growing with a thriving community in Columbus.

Jason Rasmussen, General Manager of Sahling Kenworth’s York and Columbus branches, was elated when talking about the potential this expansion brings for the Columbus and the community it serves. “It’s going to really increase the customer support that we are able to provide everybody,” he said to NATASYA ONG of The Columbus Telegram.

October proved to be a busy month for CSM, as the group celebrated a PACCAR PARTS Dealer of the Year award, a new master technician, and a celebration of the W990.
