Groundbreaking ceremonies were held Tuesday for the newest Palmer Trucks-owned Kenworth of Cincinnati.
Representatives from Palmer Trucks, local businesses, government, Cincinnati Commercial Contracting and the Palmer Family gathered at a groundbreaking ceremony for the new 44,000 square foot dealership.
“We have been part of the Sharonville community since December 1977,” says John Nichols, President of Palmer Trucks. “A lot has changed and we have seen tremendous growth.”
The new facility will more than double the size of the current location of Kenworth of Cincinnati.
“The 6.4-acre site will give the dealership room to expand with more trucks and parts inventory while providing a state of the art dealership,” says Greg Mills, Kenworth of Cincinnati General Manager. “Kenworth of Cincinnati will provide the same services, collision repair, truck sales and leasing all now in a new building.”
The new building could also lead to new jobs.
“With new growth and new service bays we are expected to grow our team significantly in the next few years,” says Jake Nichols, Human Resources Director.
The new Kenworth of Cincinnati will be designed to meet compressed natural gas standards and service converted fleets.
