Bay Area Kenworth in Oakland, Calif., has added three locations to increase customer support in Northern California. A member of the Kenworth dealer network of nearly 300 locations in the United States and Canada, Bay Area Kenworth’s new locations in Gilroy, Eureka and Redding join full-service dealerships in Oakland and Sacramento, and a parts store in Hayward.
All full-service dealerships display a wide selection of Kenworth heavy- and medium-duty models. Primary customers are local pickup-and-delivery accounts, plus many construction and municipality customers. “Kenworth is a leader when it comes to LNG-powered trucks and medium-duty hybrid trucks,” says Dealer Principal Harry Mamizuka. “There is a great deal of customer interest in green truck technology in California. Our message is we can sell and service all of this equipment.”
The dealer recently opened Bay Area Kenworth – Gilroy. The full-service 30,000-square-foot facility features 10 drive-through maintenance bays, a large parts department and a paint booth. The dealership, which is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, is located at 5870 Monterey Road off U.S. Highway 101 in the Gilroy Garlic Farm Travel Plaza, one mile south of the intersection of State Route 152. The phone number is 408-842-5383.
The dealer group also has added NorCal Kenworth – Eureka and NorCal Kenworth – Redding following a purchase of the former Redwood Kenworth Co. in Eureka and Redding Kenworth Co.
NorCal Kenworth – Eureka has five service bays. The full-service facility is at 2846 Jacobs Ave. in Eureka and supports the coastal communities in Northern California. Dealership hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The phone number is 707-444-9211.
NorCal Kenworth – Redding offers six service bays. The full-service facility is at 4601 Churn Creek Road in Redding. Dealership hours are 7:30 a.m. to midnight Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday. The phone number is 530-222-1212.
“While we continue to grow with customers and add more locations, our eyes are squarely on service performance,” Mamizuka says. “We feel we offer the best product and innovations in the market, and we take our service pledge just as seriously. We would not be in a position to expand if we did not commit to world-class service.”
