“By opening this facility, we can provide truck fleets and operators in northern Louisiana sales and leasing support plus immediate parts and service support along the major I-20 transportation corridor and close to the I-20 and I-49 interchange,” said Scott Oliphant, dealer principal and president of Kenworth of Louisiana. “We’re quite bullish about the long-term economic prospects in this area. The west end of Shreveport has a number of growing businesses in the light manufacturing, logging, oil and gas, mining and construction industries. There’s also a growing information technology sector anchored by CenturyLink’s headquarters in nearby Monroe, plus the U.S. Cyber Innovation Center at Barksdale Air Force Base.”
