Truckworx Kenworth Opens New Full-Service Facility in Alabama

Truckworx Kenworth has relocated its full-service facility in Montgomery, Ala., into a new $6 million, 39,000-square-foot building with 21 service bays, including three dedicated for washing and reconditioning trucks.

The service shop also includes a diesel particulate filter (DPF) cleaning machine, flywheel resurfacing machine, overhead cranes for faster and safer service of heavy components, 2-hour truck diagnosis through Kenworth PremierCare ExpressLane, and dedicated express lube bays.

The new building, located adjacent to the dealer’s previous facility, features a large lounge area with flat screen TVs and recliners where drivers can relax while waiting for their trucks to be serviced. The Montgomery dealership is at 3401 Industrial Dr., and sits on seven acres off of U.S. Highway 31, west of Maxwell Air Force Base.

“By investing in the latest technologies and top-of-the-line equipment for this new facility, we can now provide local customers a level of service unmatched by anyone else in our area,” said Will Bruser, Truckworx Kenworth president. “We’re able to keep wait times to a minimum while meeting the needs of our growing business in the construction, agriculture, pick-up and delivery and government markets.”

The existing 18,000-square-foot facility will be renovated and transformed into an additional parts warehouse for Truckworx Kenworth – Montgomery.
