Worldwide Kenworth of South Carolina recently opened a newly constructed 67,000 sq.-ft., full-service dealership in Spartanburg to accommodate the market for Kenworth trucks and services in Upstate South Carolina, the company says.
Worldwide Kenworth of South Carolina – Spartanburg features 27 services bays and a 20,000 sq.-ft. parts department that includes a 3,000 sq.-ft. visual parts display. The dealership says its large parts inventory will help ensure parts availability.
The facility is on an 18-acre site, at 295 Access Road, and is located near I-85, a major trucking route through the state that connects Atlanta to the southwest and Charlotte to the northeast. Scott Blevins, Worldwide Equipment chief operating officer, says Worldwide Kenworth South Carolina – Spartanburg will benefit truck operators and owner operators travelling through the area as well as local fleets that operate in the greater Spartanburg area.
“Spartanburg is an area known for its production of industrial products such as chemicals, textiles, tires, automobile supplies among others,” says Blevins. “We look forward to the opportunity to provide service to fleets passing through the area as well as those that call Upstate South Carolina home.”
Worldwide Equipment operates 15 Kenworth dealerships in Kentucky, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia. The dealer currently employs more than 1,000 employees, including some of the most extensively trained service technicians in the industry, the company says.
