Cooper Kenworth has opened an expanded 31,000-square-foot parts and service operation along Interstate 40 in Asheville, N.C. The new operation is located on nearly 6 acres at 1895 Old Haywood Road – less than a mile from the Smokey Park Highway underpass at Exit 44 – and features 14 service bays with one bay dedicated to offering Kenworth PremierCare preventive maintenance services, a 7,000-square-foot parts department and a drivers’ lounge.

“This is a great site for our newest location,” says Russell Laing, vice president of Cooper Kenworth, which operates nine other North Carolina locations in Clinton, Concord, Durham, Greensboro, Hickory, Raleigh, Rocky Mount, South Charlotte and Wilmington. “It offers ample space for truck and trailer parking and great visibility from Interstate 40. Plus, the Asheville location has a modern alignment machine, as well as full certifications for Paccar MX and Cummins engines.”

The parts and service departments are open from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and the parts department is open from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday. The toll-free number is 800-876-0860, and the local number is 828-667-8771. The parts manager is Jay Harrell, and the service manager is Dan Rice.
