CIT Kenworth Chicago has opened a full-service dealership in a new facility in Mokena.
CIT Kenworth of Chicago-Mokena is located on 8 acres facing Interstate 80 between LaGrange Exit 145 and the Harlem Exit 148A. The 39,000 square-foot facility features 20 service bays, a 15,000 square-foot parts department and a driver’s lounge with Internet access.
Jim Loughery will serve as general manager of the Mokena dealership.
CIT Kenworth Chicago has been a Kenworth dealer in the Chicagoland area since 2004 with dealership locations in Joliet and Bensenville.
“At our Mokena location, we’re much more accessible to one of the most heavily traveled truck freight corridors in the United States, and to major regional crossroads, including Interstates 80, 355, 294, 57 and 94,” says Carl Herzog, CIT Kenworth vice president. “We’ll have the space to display a wide selection of new Kenworth trucks, including the Kenworth T680 and the Kenworth T440 for medium duty truck customers.”
CIT Kenworth Chicago-Mokena joins nine other dealership locations operated by CIT Group Inc. – Bensenville, Champaign, Joliet, Morton, Normal, Peru, Rockford, Springfield and Troy. CIT Kenworth received the 2011 Parts & Service Dealer of the Year Award at the 2012 Kenworth Parts & Service Meeting. Herzog was recently named member of the 2013 Kenworth Dealer Council.
The Mokena location, which is open from 7 a.m. to midnight Monday through Friday and 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, offers parts delivery, full warranty service support for the PACCAR MX engine along with a dynamometer.
CIT Kenworth Chicago-Mokena also offers PACCAR Leasing services.
