Updating its facility is a regular practice for Tulsa New Holland in Tulsa, Okla. “Our building has some age on in being built in 1962, but you would never know it is that old as we try to do a little updating each year,” says Kelly Umphrey, general manager. “We do this to keep the store looking sharp and welcoming for our customers. There is a whole new generation out there and a dusty old farm store just isn’t pleasing to them. When people visit from other dealerships to pick up a transfer or manufacturer reps come by, they often comment on how clean and neat Tulsa New Holland is.”
Tulsa New Holland’s facility was built in 1962, but the dealership is committed to making small updates each year, says Kelly Umphrey, general manager. This year, the dealership trimmed out the showroom with barn wood and updated the windows that were original to the building.
In the last year, the dealership has trimmed its showroom with barn wood, replaced the old windows from 1962, updated the customer waiting area and replaced a lot of concrete in the driveway.
“We also put in a new state-of-the-art security system in place in 2018, which virtually stops losses from theft. It is also helpful to our management team to monitor what is going on in the dealership at all times,” Umphrey says.
Tulsa New Holland’s’ most recent facility updates included redoing the customer waiting area.
