Basil Ford has opened a standalone commercial truck center at 1620 Walden Ave. in Cheektowaga, two doors down from the dealership.

The center focuses on the sale and service of special-use vehicles, including transit connect vans and motor homes. The new operation created five full-time jobs, and contains features such as heated floors in the service shop and eight bays designed specifically for large vehicles.

A grand opening for the truck center is scheduled for 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on June 6.
