WAUKEE - Stivers Ford Lincoln in Waukee began construction Wednesday, Sept. 19 on its new state-of-the-art, stand-alone collision center facility located at 1350 SE Stone Ridge in Waukee.
The new collision center is located to the immediate west of the dealership (located 1450 E Hickman Road in Waukee), and will expand Stivers’ current facility by more than twice the space - growing from 8,000 to 17,000 square feet.
“The steel frames are up, and we are excited about the opportunity to expand our service offerings for our customers in Dallas County and the surrounding areas.” Stivers’ President Scott Politte said about the expansion. “I’d like to also give credit to Wes Conrad, our collision center manager, as well as his crew, for increasing our collision center business by over 300 percent in the last 10 years. By opening a new facility, we can convert the space in our existing building into more service and Quicklane repair. We will increase our capacity and improve current service turnaround times across the board. This is the second time we have had to expand our repair facilities in the last five years.”
“Additionally, we have paved three more acres of land next to the new collision center for more new, used and commercial vehicle display.”
The new collision center construction is being managed by Neumann Brothers of Des Moines and is expected to be finished by December 2018.
