Wallwork Kenworth has opened a state-of-the-art dealership in Bismarck, N.D., expanding its operations with a new facility designed to offer better accessibility and enhanced support. A member of the Kenworth dealer network of more than 300 locations in the United States and Canada, the new Wallwork Kenworth-Bismarck dealership is on a 5.5-acre site less than a half-mile east off of Exit 161 on Interstate 94.
“Our new location offers immediate access for trucks operating on the heavily-traveled east-west U.S. Interstate 94 route between Minneapolis and Billings,” says Dave Silbernagel, branch manager for Wallwork Kenworth-Bismarck, which has an affiliate location in Fargo, 190 miles to the east.
The dealership’s new 39,000-square-foot facility is more than three times the size of the building at its previous Bismarck location. “It includes 1,600 square feet for parts display, and 7,900 square feet of warehouse space to keep a well-supplied stock of parts for customers,” says Leo Silbernagel, the dealership’s parts manager. “We also offer parts delivery into Bismarck and the outlying areas with three parts routes.”
The 14,000-square-foot service department has 14 service bays with a wash bay and two bays dedicated to Kenworth PremierCare Express Lube and AC preventive maintenance services. The facility also includes the city’s only dynamometer, enabling customers to save fuel, time and driver expense, while experiencing the latest in engine technology diagnostics. “We also offer mobile support for customers who choose to let us send our truck and technician to their shop,” says Mike Zinke, the dealership’s service manager.
Wallwork Kenworth-Bismarck serves companies in the over-the-road, delivery, agricultural and construction industries. The dealership is open from 7:30 a.m. to midnight Monday through Friday and from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The phone number is 701-224-1026 or toll-free 800-224-4003.
