The new Kenworth of South Louisiana dealership is located on 12 acres at 441 S. Goodman Road, just off U.S. Highway 90 and about 1Ž2 mile east of Exits 10B and 11 of U.S. Interstate 210. The Lake Charles location joins four other dealerships under the Kenworth of South Louisiana banner in Carencro (Lafayette), Harahan, Houma and Port Allen, La.

“Lake Charles is the largest community in southwest Louisiana and this new location sits in the heart of the industrial area,” says Scott Oliphant, president of Kenworth of South Louisiana. “The 12 acres provides us the opportunity to grow the facility as demand requires. Already we’re looking at expanding the location to a much larger facility with more service bays and more room for parts storage and display.”
