New Fyda Freightliner facility forthcoming in Kentucky

Updated Aug 8, 2017

Fyda Freightliner says construction is nearing completion on the company’s newest full-service commercial truck dealership. Fyda Freightliner Western Star Northern Kentucky will be an authorized Freightliner and Western Star dealer located on I-71/I-75 and Dixie Highway US-25 at Richwood (Route 338) Exit 175 in Walton (Boone County) Ky.

The dealership will be Fyda’s seventh – and the first in the Fyda network to be located in Kentucky. The dealership planned opening is 7 a.m. for parts and 8 a.m. for service on July 31, 2017

“We’ve been working towards being able to directly service our Kentucky customers from a location within the state for several years, and now that we’re almost there it’s really exciting,” says Dan Ruhe, general manager for both the current Cincinnati and new Walton dealerships. “We have great opening specials at the ready for when we open including a Dyno Health Check, computerized all-axle alignments using our state-of-the-art Hunter WinAlign system, DPF cleaning, and much more.”

Customers interested in these services can make appointments now by calling the Fyda Cincinnati location at (513) 772-7171 and asking for Danny Witt or Harry Schulte, who will be managing service and parts for Fyda Northern Kentucky.

Fyda Freightliner Western Star Northern Kentucky will stock a large inventory of both new Freightliner and Western Star and all-makes pre-owned medium- and heavy-duty commercial trucks, the company says. The parts department will carry over $1 million in inventory, and the service department will be a certified warranty repair center for all major engine manufacturers. The company will operate extended hours in all departments with the goal of running two service department shifts with the first year, the company says.
