BUFFALO, N.Y., November 20, 2012 - Kenworth of Buffalo has acquired a Kenworth dealership in the Boston area and changed the name of its expanded, five-dealer organization to the Kenworth Northeast Group.

"We're pleased to increase customer support with the addition of Kenworth of Boston to join our four excellent dealerships in the state of New York. We plan to deepen our market penetration and expand market share through the growth of existing operations and the pursuit of new opportunities in Eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island."
