The new location at 305 W. Industrial Park Dr. quadruples the size of the Salina dealership adding 20,000 square feet and three times the number of service bays compared to the previous location. It’s about 2.5 miles south of the previous site and sits on 14 acres on the north side of I-70, a major east-west freeway between Denver, Salt Lake City and Las Vegas. The large property, which is 13 acres larger than the previous site, features a large parking lot providing room for truck drivers to park and maneuver their trucks and trailers or drop off after-hours.
Kenworth Sales – Salina features a 25,000-square-foot building with a more than 7,000-square-foot parts department offering a large inventory and delivery throughout the greater Sevier County area. The service department offers drive-through bays with state-of-the-art equipment and four specially designed bays to provide for liquefied natural gas-powered commercial vehicle repairs.
“The local Salina economy is driven by the mining and agricultural industries, which will greatly benefit from this new location,” said Kyle Treadway, president of Kenworth Sales Co. “Our old downtown location provided no room to grow and made for difficult maneuvering for truck drivers. Drivers will find this new location much more accessible and convenient with its large parking lot and proximity to Exit 56 on I-70.”
Kenworth Sales – Salina will celebrate the opening of its newest facility with a grand opening from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Oct. 1. The grand opening will feature local dignitaries and supplier representatives.
The Salina location joins 19 others in the Kenworth Sales Company family of dealerships throughout seven western states – Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. This year marks the 70th anniversary for Kenworth Sales Company.
Jesse Allan manages the Salina location’s parts department and David Van Dyke is responsible for the service department. Parts and Service are available from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday. The service department offers full warranty support for the PACCAR MX-13 engine. The phone number is 435-529-2240. Kenworth Sales – Salina is part of the Kenworth Dealer network of more than 360 locations in the United States and Canada.
