Kenworth of Buffalo has relocated its Syracuse dealership to a larger facility strategically located at Interstate 90 (New York Thruway) Exit 35 and is also accessible to I-81, State Routes 11 and 481, and the Syracuse airport.
Kenworth of Buffalo – Syracuse is located on nearly seven acres with ample parking space for trucks and trailers. The dealership features 12 service bays, with one bay dedicated as a wash bay. The nearly 26,000-sq.-ft. facility is said to offer superior parts availability with 4,500b sq. ft. of parts warehousing and 1,000 sq. ft. of parts display. The drivers’ lounge offers wireless Internet and flat-screen TV. The facility offers free shuttle service and is a New York state inspection station.
To celebrate the new location, Kenworth of Buffalo – Syracuse will host a customer appreciation day Sept. 19. This event will coincide with an appearance by the new aerodynamic Kenworth T680 during its national road tour.
“Since entering Syracuse in 2006, we’ve continued to grow along with the trucking market,” says Tim Crist, vice president of operations for Kenworth of Buffalo at its Buffalo headquarters. “Our Syracuse facility carries more than a half million dollars’ worth of parts inventory including all-makes TRP Parts to help service our customers’ needs. Plus the new Syracuse location is well-situated in Western New York and has room for expansion.”
In addition to Kenworth of Buffalo and Kenworth of Buffalo – Syracuse, the dealer’s four locations also include Kenworth of Buffalo – Albany and Kenworth of Buffalo – Rochester.
Kenworth of Buffalo – Syracuse is open from 7 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Key personnel in Syracuse include Bob Duink, branch manager; Wayne Burgess, new truck sales; Dave Mahosky, service manager; and Patrick Lisconish, parts manager.
