Centre du Camion Amos has opened a new Kenworth parts and service facility in Val d’Or, Quebec, offering local fleets and truck operators easy access from Trans-Canada Quebec Route 117. Centre du Camion Amos is located on a 2-acre site about one-half kilometer north of the Boulevard Tetrault (Quebec Route 117) and Rue de l’Hydro roundabout. Route 117 is a provincial highway within Quebec, between Montreal and the Quebec/Ontario border. It is the only direct route between southern Quebec and the Abitibi-Témiscamingue region.
“We’re pleased to open this new location because it provides customers in Val d’Or and the Abitibi-Témiscamingue region closer access to Kenworth parts and service,” says Alain Sayeur, general manager of Centre du Camion Amos. “So far, customer response to the new location has been very positive.”
Val d’Or, which is French for valley of gold, is the commercial center of the Abitibi-Témiscamingue region, where mining and logging are the main industries of the local economy. “Our new location serves a variety of customers – logging companies, muck haulers, construction companies and food hauling fleets,” Sayeur says.
Centre du Camion Amos is located at 1771 Rue de L’Hydro. The dealership is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday. The phone number is 819-874-6471. In addition to Alain Sayeur, key personnel include Daniel Dicaire, parts manager, and Dominic Sayeur, service manager.
The 10,000 square-foot dealership features six service bays, 650 square-foot parts department and driver’s lounge. The dealership offers full warranty service support for the Paccar MX engine. “We offer fleet customers parts delivery and remote maintenance service, plus we have emergency roadside assistance for fleets and truck operators,” Sayeur says.
