Chemo RV Sales and Services Building New Facility in British Columbia

Fri Dec 8, 2017

Chemo RV Sales and Services Ltd has embarked on the construction of a mega sales and service facility in Quesnel, British Columbia

Chemo RV has a 40-year history serving the Cariboo region. Former owner Jack Bell set the pace for customer service, quality manufactures and building sincere relationships in the region, and his son Jason, now the owner, has carried that torch since.

Thirteen years ago, Jack Bell won the Canadian RV Dealer of the Year Award. The award is presented to a dealership that demonstrates a long-term commitment to the community as well as a commitment to the RVDA at the provincial or national level; has been recognized by customers and peers as someone with high integrity and credibility in their work and personal life; and has made a contribution to the community.

The existing space for the business is about 8,000 square feet and the new facility will be 20,000 square feet, almost three times the size of the old building, according to a story by The Quesnel Observer.
