Truckworx Kenworth, which was named Kenworth’s Parts and Service Dealer of the Year in 2012, has opened a new parts and service facility in Thomasville, Ala., in an industrial park just off of U.S. Route 43 in Clarke County.

The new facility joins six other Truckworx Kenworth dealerships located in Birmingham, Dothan, Huntsville, Mobile, Montgomery, Ala., and Jackson (Richland), Miss. Truckworx Kenworth opened its first Kenworth dealership in Birmingham in 1978 and celebrated 35 years of business in February of this year. Bob Mitchell, who founded the company with his father, is still CEO today.

Truckworx Kenworth-Thomasville is located at 2400 Joe Davis Industrial Blvd., in Joe Davis Industrial Park. The facility includes a pair of buildings — one that houses parts and the other service. In addition, there is a 5,000-square-foot area to allow for an extensive parts inventory.  The location will offer daily parts delivery. The six-acre service site offers customers plenty of truck and trailer parking. A lounge equipped with wireless Internet provides a comfortable place for drivers to catch up on paperwork while waiting for their trucks to be serviced. The eight-bay service shop includes an area for express lube services and the only flywheel resurfacing machine within a 60-mile radius.
