Papé Kenworth has opened new parts and service locations in Klamath Falls and Tangent, Ore., and Kelso, Wash.
“With the addition of these three new dealerships, Papé Kenworth has significantly expanded its service footprint throughout Oregon and southwest Washington,” Jason Muggy, general manager of Papé Kenworth’s Southern Oregon region, says.
Papé Kenworth – Kelso is located at 2504 Talley Way, near the southern end of the Kelso-Longview Airport in a 10,000-square-foot facility with extensive parts inventory tailored for the local market. There are four dedicated Kenworth service bays, a four-post service lift, and a mobile service truck, which can respond to the remote service needs of logging companies and other customers.
The 5-acre site provides plenty of room for customers to park their trucks and trailers.
“Customers can now opt to stop at Papé Kenworth in Kelso for service and avoid traffic congestion in Portland, 50 miles to the south on Interstate 5, or in the Seattle-Tacoma area more than 100 miles to the north,” Mike Pati, Papé Kenworth Portland region general manager, says. “That makes the location especially convenient for customers in southwest Washington and northwest Oregon.”
Papé Kenworth – Klamath Falls is located about two miles south of Klamath Falls off The Dalles-California Highway. The facility houses a 3,500 square-foot maintenance facility with two dedicated Kenworth service bays and a 3,750 square-foot parts area, and also provides parts delivery service and a mobile service truck.
Papé Kenworth-Tangent is located near the Albany-Junction City Highway Interchange and Route 34. The facility offers four service bays, 3,750 square-foot parts area and a driver’s lounge.
The new parts and service locations are part of a Kenworth dealer network of nearly 340 locations in the United States and Canada.
