Kenworth’s 2012 Parts and Service Dealer of the Year, Alabama-based Truckworx, has opened a new parts and service facility in Thomasville, Ala. in the Joe Davis Industrial Park.
The new parts and service facility joins six other Truckworx Kenworth dealerships located in Birmingham, Dothan, Huntsville, Mobile, Montgomery, Ala., and Jackson (Richland), Miss.
“Thomasville lies in the heart of the pine forests of Southwest Alabama. It is home to new and existing timber and steel-related industries that rely heavily on truck transportation,” said Bob Mitchell, who founded the company with his father in 1978 and is still CEO today.
Truckworx Kenworth opened its first Kenworth dealership in Birmingham in 1978 and celebrated 35 years of business in February of this year. Bob Mitchell, who founded the company with his father, is still CEO today.
Mitchell said opening the Thomasville location closes a significant service gap that existed in Southwest Alabama.
“Local and transient customers no longer have to travel upwards of 100 miles or more to Montgomery or Mobile to receive quality heavy duty service and parts,” he adds.
