Van Horn Automotive Group Announces Truck Center

The Van Horn Automotive Group has begun demolition 12/17/15 of buildings on Eastern Avenue in Plymouth (across from Chuck Van Horn Dodge and Joe Van Horn Chevrolet) on the site of its new Van Horn Truck Center, THE TRUCK FACTORY. The new dealership will feature the State’s largest inventory of new Ram and Chevy trucks and vans along with all other makes and models of used trucks, vans and SUV’s for both consumer and commercial customers. This new, 12 acre (total) facility will allow truck customers to select from over 500 new and used trucks and vans and over 200 SUV’s along with an off-road test track, pre-weighted trailers for demonstrating towing characteristics and a dedicated upfit facility for the installation of accessories, bedliners, commercial truck bodies and commercial van upfits. “We are very excited about bringing this new benchmark facility to Plymouth and all of the upper Midwest” stated Paul Miller, Fleet & Commercial Truck Manager for the Van Horn Group. “It will allow unprecedented access for customers to be able to see and drive the largest selection of retail and commercial trucks, vans and SUV’s all at one location”. “We are building this as the first “destination” truck/SUV dealership in Wisconsin that people will want to come to even if they aren’t in the market for a vehicle, much the same as some sporting goods stores become destination shopping locations just because they are a cool place to visit”. A Grand Opening celebration is scheduled for spring/summer of 2016 at 3003 Eastern Avenue in Plymouth.

The Van Horn Automotive Group includes 12 family-owned Wisconsin dealerships selling new Chevrolet, Dodge, Ram, Chrysler, Jeep, Hyundai and Mazda vehicles along with all other used makes and models in Plymouth, Sheboygan, Fond du Lac, Milwaukee, Manitowoc and Madison (Stoughton).
