KIRKLAND, Wash. — Inland Kenworth was named 2005 Kenworth Medium Duty Dealer of the Year for the U.S. and Canada at the recent annual Kenworth Dealer Meeting in Palm Springs, Calif.

“It is quite an honour for Inland Kenworth to receive Kenworth’s Medium Duty Dealer of the Year Award for its U.S. operations in Arizona, California and New Mexico,” said Jim Beiderwieden, Inland Kenworth president, at corporate headquarters in Burnaby, B.C. “The Kenworth T300 is an outstanding medium-duty vehicle and customers especially appreciate its performance, quality and low life cycle cost. We have made the medium-duty customer an important part of our business by investing in medium-duty personnel, parts and service to support their needs.”

That kind of customer appreciation and dealer support for the Kenworth T300 contributed to Kenworth’s reception of the 2005 J.D. Power and Associates awards for Highest in Customer Satisfaction in the Conventional Medium Duty Truck Segment and Medium Duty Dealer Service.

“Inland Kenworth has been very aggressive in successfully expanding its medium duty business,” said Bob Christensen, Kenworth general manager and PACCAR vice-president. “Inland Kenworth’s U.S. operations led Kenworth dealers in both T300 sales and in placing PacLease units, many of which are medium-duty trucks. Their employees are committed to providing World’s Best support, which is another key reason for Inland Kenworth’s success.”
