LANGLEY, B.C. — Harbour International opened the doors to its new location at 19880-96th Ave. last week, after a $2 million investment into the facility.
The dealership says it’s now poised to serve the medium- and heavy-duty truck needs of customers in the Fraser Valley and beyond.
“We are pleased to launch our newest facility in the heart of the Greater Vancouver trucking community,” said Robert Owen, general manager of Harbour International Trucks. “The location in the Port Kells area of Langley was carefully selected due to its proximity to the trucking community and the location’s situation on major Gateway Project transportation corridors. This facility is ideally situated minutes away from Hwy. 1, with access to the US border truck crossing.”
The new facility features a 12-bay service department, large parts warehouse, an indoor truck showroom and offers rentals, full-service leasing and medium- and heavy-duty truck sales. More than 300 guests attended the grand opening Oct. 8 which included the display of a limited edition Harley Davidson LoneStar.
“This is an exciting time for us. We are investing in expanding our operations at a time when many in our industry are focused on cost reductions in personnel and facilities,” said Richard Ross, general sales manager for Harbour International Trucks. “We now have three facilities in Southwest BC with companies in Langley, Coquitlam and Nanaimo. We are incredibly optimistic regarding the potential for growth.”
