New England Kenworth recently completed an extensive renovation of an existing building in Caribou, Maine, that opened to the public on Oct. 10.
Just shy of 10,000 sq.-ft., New England Kenworth Co-President MaryBeth Alosa says the location is equipped to service up to seven trucks and also features state of the art technology such as radiant floor heat, a waste oil furnace and software technology to diagnose truck codes.
"We’ve essentially got a brand new facility in an area where we can serve the trucking industry with much needed truck parts and service," she says.
The parts display and storage areas occupy about half of the building and the dealership plans to keep approximately $750,000 in parts inventory on site.
Co-President Denise Alosa adds, "We are very excited to be able to bring authorized Kenworth parts and service this far north to service Aroostook County, and with the location right on Route 1, the main artery headed towards Canada, our decision to open in Caribou was an easy one."
New England Kenworth – Caribou, is a substantial improvement from the dealer’s former parts and service location in Limestone, Maine, which the company did not have the visibility as this new facility. The new facility also significantly expands parts and service access for fleet customers and operators headed to or from northern most Maine, the company adds.
The address is 1101 Presque Isle Road, Caribou, Maine 04736. Hours of operation are 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and Saturday from 7 a.m. until 12 p.m. The main phone number is 207-328-4600.
