NorCal Kenworth relocates facility

Oct. 23, 2012

NorCal Kenworth has moved its Morgan Hill, CA, facility closer to U.S. Highway 101. The new NorCal Kenworth – Morgan Hill is located on 3 acres of land facing Highway 101 near the East Dunne Avenue Interchange, about 10 mi. north of the previous dealership in Gilroy.

“We’re excited to be in this new location with its proximity to U.S. Highway 101, a major north-south route between the Bay Area and Los Angeles,” said Mandeep Johal, branch manager of NorCal Kenworth - Morgan Hill. “Morgan Hill sits near the center of some of California’s most prime farmland, where much of the nation’s fresh produce is grown and then shipped by truck. The city also is home to two, large business parks and many national fleets which provide logistics for nearby Silicon Valley companies. As a result, a high volume of trucks move through Morgan Hill northbound en route to San Jose, Stockton and Sacramento and southbound to Salinas and Los Angeles.”

The new facility covers 25,000 sq. ft. and includes 11 service bays, a 750 sq.-ft. parts display area, 4,000 sq.-ft. parts warehouse, and a driver’s lounge with cable TV and wireless Internet connection.

The dealership operates two parts delivery trucks and provides full warranty service support for the Paccar MX engine and has trained Cummins engine technicians on hand.

“Our newly renovated facility also represents a significant investment with an LED architectural lighting system that keeps the exterior of the building well lit using a fraction of the electricity compared to standard lighting,” said Johal. “It further demonstrates our continuing commitment to finding environmentally responsible ways to offer customers a higher level of support.”
