Kenworth Sales Co.-Pendleton recently opened its new 10,000-square-foot parts and service facility located near Interstate 84 two miles southeast of Pendleton, Ore. The new facility, Kenworth Sales Co.’s 20th location, is located at 72567 Highway 331 near Exit 216. The dealership features eight service bays with one bay dedicated to providing Kenworth PremierCare Express Lube services, a 450–square-foot parts display area, a 3,000-square-foot parts warehouse, parts delivery service and a drivers’ lounge.
The new location sits on the Confederated Tribe of the Umatilla Indian Reservation’s business park. “We’re pleased to have worked closely with the Umatilla Tribe in opening this new location,” says Kyle Treadway, president of Kenworth Sales Co., which operates locations in seven states. “The tribe identified the trucking industry as a critical component for its economic development plans for attracting new industry and businesses to the area. And we’re glad they see this Kenworth dealership as an important part of establishing strong truck freight distribution channels.”
Having a parts and service facility in Pendleton fills a 220-mile gap between the company’s facilities in Pasco, Wash., and Ontario, Ore., Treadway says. “It offers customers a convenient location to get service for their trucks, particularly before they climb Cabbage Hill and cross the Blue Mountains to the east, or as they come down off of Cabbage Hill,” says Treadway, who adds the new location also will serve a strong need among those in the area’s agricultural industry and local distribution companies.
Kenworth Sales Co.-Pendleton is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The phone number is 541-966-1499 or toll-free 855-899-1499.
