Bayview Kenworth location opens in Bathurst, New Brunswick

June 19, 2015
Bayview Kenworth has purchased an existing independent parts and service dealership in Bathurst, New Brunswick, and converted it into a new 13,000-square-foot Kenworth parts and service dealership, the company recently announced.The facility features six truck service bays and a 1,500-square-foot parts warehouse and sits on about 6 acres at 2015 Industrial Drive, accessible from New Brunswick Routes 8 and 11, the company said. “When this dealership became available, I knew it was a great opportunity to open a new Kenworth location and take advantage of the talents and knowledge of employees who have built a trusted local business,” said Mike Nagle, dealer principal. “We’ve recently completed some renovations and also added parts and service technicians.”Nagle is experienced in drawing on the talents and knowledge of an existing business. In 2007, Nagle transitioned his longtime New Brunswick truck sales and service dealerships to the Kenworth dealer network.“By acquiring this (Bathurst) dealership, Bayview Kenworth can quickly establish a Kenworth presence in a part of the province where there has been that need for many years,” he added. “I’m also pleased to be able to keep good people working in the place they call home.”The facility’s parts and service departments will be overseen and managed by Randy Couture and Kevin Ferron, respectively. Bayview Kenworth – Bathurst is open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. The dealership offers full warranty support for the PACCAR MX-13 engine.“By providing staff at the Bathurst store new equipment and a renovated facility, they can offer a higher level of service to local mining and logging companies, plus commercial fishing operators, peat moss manufacturers, contractors, pick-up and delivery couriers and food haulers,” Nagle said.
