21 COMPANY NEWS New Massillon Branch Expands GREATER-CANTON AREA SALES AND SERVICE CAPABILITIES C Columbus Equipment Company has moved to a new facility in Massillon to better serve our Greater Canton area customers. The location at 2200 Venture Circle S.E. Massillon Ohio 44646 is just 10 minutes west of the old store in Canton and offers easy access to Route 30. The store is now fully operational and features a new customer service area including a large parts department. The facility already has a five-bay service area and work is underway on a 5000-square-foot addition that will add two drive-through bays supported by a 10-ton overhead crane. When that work is completed by the end of January 2016 the facility will have 20000 square feet of space. Beaver Constructors of Canton is the contractor on the project. The added bays will allow the service staff to handle larger equipment and larger projects than before said Dan Minnis manager of the Massillon branch. We have had a very good market share in the Canton area for quite a few years and this facility will allow us to keep up with that amount of fleet. Our investment in the Massillon facility is part of Columbus Equipment Companys ongoing commitment to providing the best service possible to our customers in the area. Along with the additional service area the 5.3-acre property provides plenty of room for the store to maintain a bigger sales and rental fleet than it could in Canton. Mike Haney has been named assistant branch manager for the Massillon store. Mike will oversee the daily operations of the branch. He was previously inside sales coordinator for the Canton and Cadiz branches and I believe he will help facilitate growth and provide continuity for our customers Minnis said Haney who has been with Columbus Equipment Company since 2013 also has experience in the building trades. The store will hold a grand opening event in the spring but customers are invited to come check out the new facil- ity during regular business hours. Customers have been very excited about the facility including a much better parking lot than we had in Canton Minnis said Columbus Equipment has been serving the Canton market since 1996. Our investment in the Massillon facility is part of Columbus Equipment Companys ongoing commitment to providing the best service possible to our customers in the area.
