Inland Kenworth has relocated its Campbell River, British Columbia, dealership to a larger facility.
The new location, a 20,000-sq.-ft. facility located at 2900 North Island Highway about 1 kilometer north of its previous site, features state-of-art equipment and a 6,000-sq.-ft. parts department. It also has a 10,000-sq.-ft. service department with five drive-throughs and 10 service bays.
“Our new facility features a parts inventory control system that helps the parts department stay well-stocked with quality Kenworth proprietary and TRP all-makes parts,” said Falko Heuser, branch manager of Inland Kenworth – Campbell River. “Desktop computers and wireless notebooks designated for each service bay help service department technicians improve service work scheduling and tracking. The service department also has a new lighting system that provides technicians a bright work environment allowing them to see more clearly when working on customer’s trucks and equipment. These updated features and added capacity improve our customers’ experience.”
One of the drive-throughs can also be used as an indoor wash bay to wash a full truck and trailer combination.
“Because of their efficiency, the drive-throughs allow us to get trucks back on the road making money faster than we did at our previous location,” Heuser said.
Inland Kenworth – Campbell River has two parts delivery trucks that make regular trips to truck fleets and operators, particularly logging companies with timber harvesting operations in more remote parts of Vancouver Island and in the Powell River area, across the Georgia Straight on the B.C. mainland. And the dealership has four remote service trucks that provide logging companies, contractors and other truck operators service work on their trucks and other equipment.
