Keeping trucks on the road and business moving forward is the heart of Motor Trucks’ business.Their new International dealership is packed with powerful features, helping them grow business and deliver customer service.
Experienced in the unique construction requirements of dealerships, Fisher Construction Group was chosen to build this facility in Everett’s Riverview Industrial Park on the Snohomish River.
Just like the trucks the company sells and services, the beauty of Motor Trucks goes beyond the pleasing exterior. Inside the door you’ll find a tough, hard-working facility built with an eye on reducing operating costs. Both eco-friendly and efficient, the facility uses recycled waste oil as fuel for the boilers which heat the hydronic floor system. The maintenance area is naturally lit with skylights and translucent bay doors.
With 21 service bays, the pre-engineered steel building accommodates tractor trailer combinations as they pull through without unhooking. The 5-ton crane with a 70 ft. reach makes quick work of lifting and replacing engines. Big rig oil changes are a breeze with technicians working from the preformed EnviroLube pit installed below the garage floor.
The smart looking Star metal building with Fabral architectural panels is built of sustainable materials, many of them recycled. In the trucking business, staying ahead of the customers requires a tough, durable facility. Motor Trucks was built to do just that—delivering on investment both now and for years down the road.
