Western Branch Diesel has opened a new branch in Greensboro, N.C., bringing the number of its branches across five states to 10.

The Greensboro branch will help support WBD’s regional operations for power generation and off-highway service. The location will service MTU product lines for heavy equipment and power generation.

“At Western Branch Diesel’s new Greensboro location, our customers can count on the same MTU-recognized level of exceptional service, factory training and experience that WBD customers in other territories have relied on since the company’s founding in 1946,” president and CEO Herb Haneman said in a statement. “The Greensboro team will excel at power generation sales and service while also meeting high-horsepower service and parts needs for heavy equipment and generators.”
