Truck Dealer Expands in Indy

By Staff Writer July 22, 2020

Palmer Trucks, a third generation, family-owned commercial truck sales, parts and service provider, announced plans to expand its operations in the Indianapolis area. The company is developing state-of-the-art facilities and creating up to 220 jobs by 2022. Company executives were joined by Gov. Eric J. Holcomb, Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett, the Palmer family, company associates, local customers and the Kenworth Truck Co. for the announcement.

The new shop will feature 52 service bays and eight body shop bays to service trucks from across the region. Diesel technician training will also take place within this facility.

Palmer Trucks last month closed on a 140,000-square-foot facility at 9704 E. 30th St. in Indianapolis. The new facility, Kenworth of Indianapolis – East, will become home to a diesel technician training center, parts warehouse, body shop, corporate offices and full-service Kenworth dealership. The 30th Street location will operate as an extension of the Kenworth dealership, located west of Indianapolis on Holt Road since 1971. The $17 million capital investment project will also feature upgrades to the existing Kenworth dealership on Holt Road.
