Kenworth Truck Co. on Monday, Feb. 11, announced an extension through 2008 of a truck purchase rebate program with the Consolidated Buying Co. and its petroleum hauler and grocery distribution members on qualifying purchases of new Kenworth trucks ordered through their dealer or bought from dealer stock.
Rebates are $1,250 for orders of three or more Class 8 units, $1,000 for one or two Class 8 units, and $500 for a Class 7 unit. Limit for a single customer is 10 trucks per year. The purchaser must identify CBC membership to the dealer at the time of truck purchase. Kenworth will pay the first-year CBC membership fee for any qualifying customer that wishes to participate in the rebate program, but is not currently a CBC member.
CBC is the largest buying group for petroleum operators in North America, currently providing services and benefits to more than 12,000 locations. CBC provides national and regional promotional and rebate opportunities for convenience stores, auto-repair locations, car-wash facilities and fuel-hauling operations.
“Many petroleum haulers and grocery distributors have purchased Kenworth trucks under the rebate program with the Consolidating Buying Company,” says Gary Moore, assistant general manager of marketing and sales for Kirkland, Wash.-based Kenworth. “We’re pleased to offer this successful program for these customers in 2008.”
