NEWARK, Calif. – ABC Companies plans to open a parts-and-service center early next year in Newark, just 15 minutes from the company’s Redwood City operation in the greater San Francisco Bay Area.
The new location at 7980 Enterprise Drive will serve employer shuttle operations and tour, charter and commuter operators of all sizes and fleet profiles throughout the region.
The Newark location is on the east side of the San Francisco Bay and offers easy access to customers via Route 84 and Interstate 880.
“We recognize the ongoing growth of this market and we’re eager to expand our reach by offering robust fleet support services, as well as everyday drive-up service to any fleet operator in the region,” said Jon Savitz, ABC senior vice president for service operations.
The new facility is part of the company’s strategic vision of offering the broadest range of fleet services to cover every aspect of operations – and ultimately providing a truly one-stop experience for customers.
“Providing all the resources for fleet support in one state-of-the-art location will make ABC a more effective business partner for customers in the Bay Area as well as the northern California region,” said Roman Cornell, ABC chief commercial officer and executive vice president.
“We are excited to enable our customers to better leverage our technical expertise and parts supply chain to improve their fleet operations and accelerate repair and service turnaround times.”
Situated on three-plus acres, the 30,000-square-foot facility will offer:
- Two acres of secure, well-lit parking.
- State-of-the-art diagnostics, maintenance, collision and repair, and vehicle care with 14 service bays; axle alignment and complete tire service and balancing; and full paint booth and body shop
- A modern, comfortable driver’s lounge featuring Wi-Fi, work areas, large screen TV and pool table
- A 6,000-square-foot dedicated parts warehouse and distribution center offering ABC’s expansive parts inventory available for counter pickup and shipping
“In terms of parts distribution and access, we think customers will be delighted with this new location,” Cornell said. “Along with OEM Van Hool parts and accessories, customers can order every popular make and model SKU and expect fast delivery and efficient turnaround time for in-shop repairs.”
Construction is underway and ABC is planning to open the facility in the first quarter of 2018.
