Kenworth of Pennsylvania has opened two new parts and service locations – one in York and another near Lancaster.
Kenworth of Pennsylvania’s newly renovated 4,500 square-foot facility in York has two service bays for service and PACCAR engine support, 2,500 square-feet of parts storage and a comfortable driver’s lounge.
The dealership is located on one-and-a-half acres on York’s north side at 755 Vogelsong Road, along U.S. Highway 30 and two miles west of U.S. Interstate 83.
“The addition of Kenworth of Pennsylvania – York offers these local companies and manufacturers easy access to a more convenient location, compared to our dealerships nearly 50 miles northwest in Carlisle or 70 miles northeast in Shartlesville,” says Gary Mitchell, president of Kenworth of Pennsylvania. “Our new dealership is also close to major north-south and east-west routes through Pennsylvania to provide dependable parts and service for trucks passing through the area.”
York is home to nearly a dozen trucking companies, Harley-Davidson motorcycle factory, BAE Systems facility, Stauffer Biscuit Company and to York International, one of the largest HVAC system suppliers in the United States.
The Lancaster dealership is located near the intersection of South Esbenshade Road and Pennsylvania Route 230, less than a mile from Pennsylvania Route 238. Routes 230 and 238 are major trucking corridors through Pennsylvania.
The newly renovated facility offers two drive-through service bays and 2,000 square-feet of parts display and storage well-stocked with quality Kenworth proprietary and TRP all-makes parts. It also has a comfortable driver’s lounge. Kenworth of Pennsylvania – Lancaster is located on 7 and a half acres and offers plenty of room for truck drivers to park their trucks and trailers.
“We’ve outfitted two Kenworth T370s as mobile service units and will run them from the new Lancaster location to provide fleet customers remote services,” Mitchell says. “With the construction of a $50 million soybean processing plant in nearby Marietta set to open in 2014, the remediation of the old Armstrong World Enterprises factory, and other economic development projects, the Lancaster area is experiencing an economic revitalization. These projects have attracted new economic activity and generated more freight and truck traffic. We’re pleased to be a part of it.”
