Kenworth of Alabama and Mississippi has opened a new dealership in Madison, Ala., that offers truck drivers easy access to a full-service dealership right off Interstate 65 in Huntsville.
Kenworth of Huntsville is located on an 8-acre site about one-half mile west of the Greenbriar Road exit on Interstate 565, and is a member of the Kenworth dealer network that has 305 locations in the United States and Canada.
The dealership’s 25,000 sq.-ft. facility offers 10 service bays with one bay dedicated to Kenworth PremierCare ExpressLube customers. Kenworth of Huntsville also has a fully stocked parts department, a prominent display area for new and used trucks and a comfortable drivers’ lounge.
“We’re pleased and feel fortunate to open a new dealership in this community. We get to offer The World’s Best trucks, parts, and service to one of America’s best small towns,” said Bob Mitchell, Kenworth of Alabama and Mississippi dealer principal.
In 2009, Madison was ranked as one of the nation’s top 10 places to grow up by U.S. News and World Report and was rated 49th by CNNMoney in a list of America’s 100 best small towns.
“Kenworth of Huntsville offers plenty of room to display Kenworth’s wide selection of truck models and for operators to maneuver and park their tractors and trailers,” Mitchell said. “We see a lot of opportunity to grow our heavy and medium duty truck business in the Madison area, particularly with the aerodynamic Kenworth T700 and T660 models, and the new Kenworth T440 and T470 models.”
The fuel-efficient Kenworth T700 equipped with the low-emission PACCAR MX engine was named the 2011 Commercial Heavy Duty Truck of the Year by the American Truck Dealers.
The dealership offers Kenworth PremierCare parts and service programs to help companies and owner/operators save money as well as budget for and schedule maintenance. PACCAR Financial support, which includes flexible retail loans, leases, and insurance products, also is available.
Kenworth of Huntsville is located at 15090 Alabama Highway 20 in Madison, Ala.
Key contacts at Kenworth of Huntsville are: Bob Mitchell, owner; Randy Hall and Steve Sullivan, new truck sales representatives; Mark Woods, service manager; and Jeremy Wilson, parts manager. Kenworth of Huntsville is the sixth addition to the Kenworth of Alabama and Mississippi family. The company also operates dealerships in Birmingham, Dothan, Montgomery, and Mobile, Ala., and Jackson, Miss.
