Palmer Trucks announced Tuesday its dealership operations in Louisville, Ky., will be expanding with the opening of a new full-service dealership in southern Indiana.
The new dealership, Kenworth of Sellersburg, will be located at 1503 Avco Blvd., in Sellersburg, across the river from Louisville. The store is tentatively scheduled to open on May 18, with limited services in line with Palmer Trucks’ social distancing and precautionary guidelines. The store is tentatively scheduled to offer full services on Monday, June 1, the company says. Initial hours will be 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays..
The company says the new location will enable customers to access Palmer Trucks’ parts inventory and world-class service with greater accessibility. The facility is located conveniently west of Exit 7 on I-65 near TRP of Sellersburg, which Palmer Trucks opened in 2019.
“Palmer Trucks is excited to open its eleventh full-service dealership. This new location will allow us to better serve our customers and the trucking industry,” says Kentucky General Manager John Yehl.
Palmer Trucks says it has experienced record growth the past several years; now with 11 full-service locations, a leasing division, a fabrication shop and TRP Parts stores in Indianapolis, Northern Kentucky and Sellersburg, Ind.
“We are excited about the opportunity to serve our customers with safety as a top priority,” says Tom Kapitan, chief operating officer. “Especially during the COVID-19 situation, we strive to foster a safe environment for all. While we look forward to welcoming customers to an opening celebration once it is safe to do so, we will be providing our world-class service with safety and existing precautions top-of-mind.”
The company says customers are encouraged to contact Kenworth of Sellersburg at (812) 248 2314 or through the company’s website so team members can anticipate and safely meet their parts and service needs.
