13969998391_a1ef22cde7_zKenworth of Pennsylvania has opened a new parts and service facility in McKees Rocks, an industrial area and suburb 4 miles west of downtown Pittsburgh.

Chris Sipes, Kenworth of Pennsylvania vice president and branch manager of the Pittsburgh and New Stanton locations, says he anticipates a lot of interest in this new location from many businesses in downtown Pittsburgh seeking a more convenient option for parts and service.

“We’ve outfitted a Kenworth truck as a mobile service unit and will run it from our new, Kenworth of Pennsylvania – Pittsburgh location to provide fleet customers with parts delivery and remote services,” he says.

Besides the Pittsburgh dealership, Kenworth of Pennsylvania operates seven additional locations in Carlisle, Clintonville, Dunmore, Lancaster, New Stanton, Shartlesville, and York, Pa.

The newly renovated facility is located on four acres and offers two drive-through service bays with enough room to service up to eight trucks, has nearly 2,000 square-feet of parts display and storage and includes a driver’s lounge with a vending area.

“The McKees Rocks area is seeing significant economic revitalization,” Sipes says. “The city has a steel finishing plant, warehouses along the Ohio River, and trucks moving freight – that is unloaded off river barges – to the ports, distribution centers, warehouses and other facilities.”

The new parts and service dealership and PacLease franchise is part of the Kenworth dealer network of more 345 locations in the United States and Canada.
