Western Nevada Kenworth opens new dealership

June 13, 2012

Western Nevada Kenworth has opened a 20,000-sq.-ft. full-service dealership in Sparks, NV. The dealership, which is located off Interstate 80 about 3 miles east of Sparks, will service the Sparks and Reno area.

The dealership features 10 service bays, with one bay dedicated to providing Kenworth PremierCare express services, a 5,000 sq.-ft. parts department, and a body building facility to sell, install and service truck-mounted equipment. The location also offers parts delivery service and a drivers’ lounge.

“Our transmission overhaul and truck-mounted equipment installation operation, Worthen Equipment, has been in business in Reno area since 1984,” said Rick Worthen, dealer principal and general manager of Western Nevada Kenworth. “By opening a Kenworth dealership at this same location, we can offer our customers more complete solutions to their transportation needs with new Kenworth models, the PaccarR MX engine, and Kenworth PremierCare parts and service support. This location also fills a 420-mi. gap between Elko, Nevada and Sacramento, Calif.”
