Kenworth of Pennsylvania has opened a new parts and service facility in McKees Rock, an industrial area about 4 mi. west of downtown Pittsburgh.
“We anticipate great interest in this new location from many businesses in downtown Pittsburgh seeking a better, more convenient option to obtain parts and service support for their trucks,” said Chris Sipes, vice president and branch manager of the Pittsburgh and New Stanton locations. “We’ve outfitted a Kenworth truck as a mobile service unit and will run it from our new, Kenworth of Pennsylvania – Pittsburgh location to provide fleet customers with parts delivery and remote services.”
The dealership is located near the intersection of Neville Avenue and Pennsylvania Route 51, adjacent to the Ohio River and less than a mile from U.S. Interstates 79 and 279 and 2 miles east of U.S. Interstate 379.
The newly renovated facility is located on 4 acres at 67 Neville Ave. in McKees Rocks. It offers two drive-through service bays with enough room to service up to eight trucks, has nearly 2,000 sq.-ft. of parts display and storage stocked with Kenworth proprietary and TRP all-makes parts, and includes a comfortable driver’s lounge with a vending area.
“The McKees Rocks area is seeing significant economic revitalization. The city has a steel finishing plant, warehouses along the Ohio River, and trucks moving freight – that is unloaded off river barges – to the ports, distribution centers, warehouses and other facilities,” Sipes said.
Besides the Pittsburgh dealership, Kenworth of Pennsylvania operates seven additional locations in Carlisle, Clintonville, Dunmore, Lancaster, New Stanton, Shartlesville, and York, Pa.
The new location also offers rental trucks and full-service leasing through Paccar Leasing (PacLease). Jay White is the local PacLease representative and Mike Wiseman is the PacLease franchise manager.
