Sat June 24, 2006 - West Edition

MHC Kenworth has expanded services to its customers in Dallas and Waco by relocating MHC Kenworth — South Dallas and MHC Kenworth — Waco into two new facilities.

As members of Kenworth’s dealer network of approximately 300 locations in the United States and Canada, MHC Kenworth’s new South Dallas and Waco locations offer full-service facilities.

Both locations feature a spacious retail parts display area and a fully enclosed indoor showroom where customers can view Kenworth trucks.

Large translucent service bay doors provide technicians with a well-lit working environment, making it easier for them to offer customers high-quality service work and quicker turnaround, according to the company.

Both facilities also provide customers with a driver’s lounge, motel shuttle service, laundry services, Internet access and other amenities.

“Our new Texas facilities are the results of responding to customer needs and the hard work and dedication of our employees,” said Mike Murphy, MHC Kenworth executive vice president of Murphy-Hoffman Company headquarters in Kansas City, MO.

“These facilities were designed with customer service and satisfaction in mind. Our expanded square footage will allow us to provide convenient availability of quality service for our customers and a nicer working environment for our employees.”

The South Dallas facility is located at 34661 Lyndon B. Johnson Highway near U.S. Interstate 20 on the southeast side of the Dallas metropolitan area.

The new building is 45,000 sq. ft., offering five times the space of the previous parts-only facility.

It offers an overhead lift, alignment machine, 21 service bays, and dedicated space for Kenworth PremierCare ExpressLube Service. Operating hours are 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

The 35,000-sq.-ft. Waco facility is located at 3331 Greig Dr. in Robinson, TX, near U.S. Interstate 35.

It has an alignment machine and 18 service bays, including Kenworth PremierCare ExpressLube Service. Operating hours are 7 a.m. to midnight Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.
