Bloomington, MN Branch Opening
Fairchild Equipment’s Minnesota headquarters (previously located in Burnsville, MN) is moving to Bloomington, MN. “The new Bloomington facility has the capacity and equipment to better support our existing business; and our future business,” Vice President and General Manager, Brian Dawson said.
Bloomington offers over two and a half times the space, going from about 40,000 square feet in Burnsville to over 101,000 square feet in Bloomington. This new location, just North of the Minnesota River, right off State Highway 35W, is also more centralized for both Fairchild’s customers and employees.
This relocation (and expansion) allows for approximately 35,000 square feet of shop space, a 25 ton overhead crane, 30 foot by 30 foot wash bay, full paint booth, and the most high tech service offices in the industry. It also offers a 10,000 square foot parts department, a 9,000 square foot showroom and business offices, 3,000 square foot vocational training room, and a 30,000 square foot warehouse to house a majority of the equipment inside, away from the Minnesota weather.
“Employees of Fairchild Equipment Burnsville are eagerly anticipating their relocation to our new location, as we have outgrown our Burnsville facility. This move represents a critical step in our five year enhanced service coverage plan. There’s more to come soon, so stay tuned,” Dawson added.
The new, much larger state of the art facility is the second facility addition in the last few years; following the opening of our Duluth facility in 2018. “With each new facility, we further improve our industry leading customer service ability. Combined with our service tablets, SmartFleet fleet management software, and robust and extensive service and safety training, we are uniquely differentiated from our competition and able to save our customers significant dollars in maintaining their fleets of material handling equipment,” said company President, Van Clarkson.
Fairchild’s Burnsville employees are excitedly waiting for their move-in date on May 1, 2020; and they can’t wait to make a new building another Fairchild home.
