Kenworth Sales Co. has opened a parts and service facility in Heyburn, Idaho. A member of the Kenworth dealer network of more than 300 locations in the United States and Canada, Kenworth Sales–Heyburn is a 13,800-square-foot facility on 2¾ acres located about a mile southwest from Exit 211 on Interstate 84.
The dealership’s 9,000-square-foot service department has eight bays and offers Kenworth PremierCare ExpressLube and Air Conditioning service. The parts department has more than 2,300 square feet of parts storage. The service department has two Paccar MX engine-certified technicians and two Cummins-certified heavy-duty engine technicians on staff.
“Since the nearest dealership is 50 miles away, Kenworth Sales–Heyburn gives local companies and owner-operators a much more convenient way to get expert service and parts for their trucks,” says Les Anderson, branch manager. “This is very important in this challenging economy. We’re especially offering expertise and service to other agribusiness companies and haulers in this area.” Before recently becoming a Kenworth dealership, the facility was operated for 10 years as a dedicated service facility for the J.R. Simplot Co.
Kenworth Sales–Heyburn offers full-time parts delivery service five days a week and a remote full-service truck to provide 24-hour roadside assistance, according to Anderson. In addition to its Heyburn location, Kenworth Sales Co. also operates 19 dealerships in Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.
Kenworth Sales–Heyburn is located at 1381 O St. The facility is open from 6 a.m. to 12:30 a.m. Monday through Saturday and 6 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Sunday. The phone number is 208-678-3039. Key personnel include Anderson and Tom Thomas, service manager.
