Inland Kenworth has opened a new dealership in Phoenix.
The 110,000-sq.-ft., $23 million dealership is located in an 85-acre business park. The park will also include a major truck stop chain with a restaurant and tire center, a local truck wash business and a trailer dealership.
The location features features a 47-bay service shop with additional capacity for light work outside, and a 21,500 sq.-ft. parts department. The facility and the business park are adjacent to U.S. Interstate 10, or Papago Freeway, just south of Exit 135.
“This was a rare opportunity to help get commercial truck-related businesses moved into this park, which offers direct access to I-10 and is highly visible from the freeway,” said Bill Currie, president and chief operating officer of the Inland Group. “Our new Phoenix area location will provide body shop repair, enhanced truck parts and service support with four 10-ton overhead cranes, an alignment machine, a chassis dynamometer, and more opportunities to see the latest in truck technology available from Kenworth in an indoor truck display.”
The service department offers full warranty support for Paccar MX series engines. The dealership also provides leasing and rental services through its Paccar Leasing franchise - Inland PacLease, which is managed by Bob Grob.
The dealership plans to hold a grand opening from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on May 13.
