Kenworth of South Florida has opened a new 16,000-sq.-ft. Kenworth PremierCare parts and service location featuring a 10-bay service shop and a 4,300-sq.-ft. parts department.
To celebrate the opening of the Naples dealership and its 10th anniversary as a Kenworth dealer, Kenworth of South Florida says it will will hold a grand opening later in the first quarter of 2017.
Kenworth of South Florida–Naples will have a large parts inventory so it can respond to the needs of local companies in the Cape Coral-Fort Myers-Naples area along the Gulf of Mexico coast, says Todd Hays, dealer principal of Kenworth of South Florida. Hays says last year the metro area landed in the top spot in the nation for its expected growth rate in economic output, according to a forecast prepared by IHS Global Insight for the U.S. Conference of Mayors.
“As the South Florida region’s economy has recovered and has been growing, the need for this new location grew,” he says. “Since we opened our first location in Fort Lauderdale 10 years ago, the full line of premium Kenworth heavy- and medium-duty trucks has been a tremendous draw for vocational, on-highway and medium duty fleets and operators in South Florida including the Cape Coral-Naples-Fort Myers area. With the opening of this new Naples location demonstrating our commitment to providing outstanding parts and service support where and when it’s most needed, we anticipate Kenworth trucks will become even more appealing to new customers.”
The new Naples dealership is on a 4.5-acre lot at 16120 Old U.S. Highway 41, about three miles west of Exit 116 on U.S. Interstate 75. The company says the service shop offers a dedicated PremierCare ExpressLane bay for quickly diagnosing trucks and providing fast lubrication service. The dealership also offers customers ample room to park their trucks. The driver’s lounge has free WiFi to help drivers get caught up on paperwork and stay in touch, the company adds.
Marc Davis is branch manager, Robert Mraz serves as service manager, and Paul Ahrens is the parts department manager. The phone number for Kenworth of South Florida–Naples is 239-984-5102.
