Kenworth Sales Co. has opened a parts and service facility in Heyburn, ID, adding to the Kenworth Truck Co. dealer network of more than 300 locations in the U.S. and Canada.
The Heyburn center is a 13,800 sq. ft. facility located about a mile southwest from Exit 211 on Interstate 84. It has a 9,000 sq. ft. service department with eight bays offering Kenworth PremierCare Express Lube and air conditioning service.
“Since the nearest dealership is 50 miles away, Kenworth Sales – Heyburn gives local companies and owner-operators a much more convenient way to get expert service and parts for their trucks. This is very important in this challenging economy,” said Les Anderson, branch manager. “We’re especially offering expertise and service to other agribusiness companies and haulers in this area.”
Before recently becoming a Kenworth dealership, the facility was operated for 10 years as a dedicated service facility for the J.R. Simplot Company.
The parts department is over 2,300 sq. ft. and there are two Paccar MX engine certified technicians and two Cummins certified heavy-duty engine techs on staff.
