BATHURST, N.B. – Bayview Kenworth announced today that it has purchased an existing independent parts and service dealership in Bathurst, N.B. and has converted it into a new Kenworth dealership.
The new dealership is 13,000 sq. ft. and features six service bays. It sits on six acres on 2015 Industrial Drive accessible from New Brunswick Routes 8 and 11.
“When this dealership became available, I knew it was a great opportunity to open a new Kenworth location and take advantage of the talents and knowledge of employees who have built a trusted local business,” said Mike Nagle, dealer principal of Bayview Kenworth. “We’ve recently completed some renovations and also added parts and service technicians. By acquiring this (Bathurst) dealership, Bayview Kenworth can quickly establish a Kenworth presence in a part of the province where there has been that need for many years,” he added. “I’m also pleased to be able to keep good people working in the place they call home.”
The parts and service department will be run by Randy Couture and Kevin Ferron.
“By providing staff at the Bathurst store new equipment and a renovated facility, they can offer a higher level of service to local mining and logging companies, plus commercial fishing operators, peat moss manufacturers, contractors, pick-up and delivery couriers and food haulers,” Nagle said.
