“The greater Leduc area is at the heart of the oil patch industry, so this location with its proximity to a major north-south route and close to the airport just seemed a natural choice. Plus, with the strong affinity that oil patch operators have for Kenworth trucks, we wanted to provide our customers a facility that can offer them a stellar level of support,” said Gary King, Edmonton Kenworth president.
“Over the past several months, we worked diligently on recruiting and training our employees at Edmonton Kenworth – Leduc. As a result, we were able to provide customers with a qualified and capable staff of 115 full-time employees to serve their needs when we recently opened our doors,” King added.
The Leduc location joins another new full-service facility Edmonton Kenworth built and opened in Fort McMurray last year. Edmonton Kenworth also operates full-service dealerships in North Edmonton, South Edmonton and Lloydminster, Alberta.
To celebrate the new facility, Edmonton Kenworth – Leduc will be hosting an open house from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, September 18. The open house will have guided tours of the facility, as well as truck displays and food and refreshments for attendees. The ribbon cutting ceremony will take place the day before the open house, September 17, with city and county mayors and members of parliament present.
Mark Denny manages the Leduc location’s parts department and Ed Stadnyk manages its service department. Parts and service are available from 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday and 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday. The phone number is (780) 612-9855.
