Kenworth of Ottawa, a new full-service dealership, has opened at a newly renovated facility that provides truck drivers expanded hours for parts and service, and easy access to Ontario Highway 417. The dealership is located on 3½ acres at 3220 Hawthorne Road in Ottawa’s industrial area and is about one mile southwest of the Walkley Road exit from Ontario Highway 417. An adjacent 1½ acres provides truck drivers space to park their trailers.
The dealership offers truck and trailer maintenance service with eight service bays, one dedicated to offering Kenworth PremierCare ExpressLube services. The new location has an 800-square-foot parts retail display area and a 4,300-square-foot parts warehouse, as well as a driver’s lounge.
“With easy access to the main provincial route that connects Western Ontario, Quebec and Montreal, as well as Ontario highways 7 and 416, Kenworth of Ottawa is a convenient location to get parts and service support and to buy new trucks,” says Guy Mercier, dealer principal and president of the Mercier Group. Besides the Ottawa dealership, Mercier Group operates three other locations, all in Ontario: Kenworth of Kingston, Kenworth of Longlac and Kenworth of Thunder Bay.
“We’re pleased to open our fourth location,” Mercier says. “It will allow us to provide our customers in Ottawa immediate access to TRP Aftermarket Parts and seven factory-trained service technicians.” Kenworth of Ottawa is open from 7 a.m. to midnight Monday through Friday. The phone number is 613-736-9292 or toll-free 855-617-9292. The new truck sales manager is Robin Caron, the service manager is Gerald Guy, and the parts manager is Jake Teichroeb.
