SAINT-GEORGES, Que. – Kenworth Quebec recently opened a new full service facility in Saint-Georges, Que.
The new 17,000 sq. ft. facility is called Kenworth Beauce and is located four kilometres north of the intersection of Quebec Routes 173 and 204.
Kenworth Beauce held a grand opening earlier this month that welcomed nearly 150 customers, suppliers and dignitaries to the new space.
“Kenworth Beauce is a major, new facility featuring state-of-the-art technology near a key truck route from southern Quebec into southern Maine,” said Robert Cadrin, Kenworth Quebec general manager. “We’ve sold trucks in this part of Quebec for 30 years. We’ve decided now is the time to get closer to our customers and provide them a location where they can see Kenworth trucks and get faster and more convenient service in the location’s six service bays. This enhanced service will encourage more local customers to consider choosing the Paccar MX-13 engine and take advantage of our local engine service support. As a result, we expect the Paccar MX-13’s share of our market to increase significantly.”
Kenworth Quebec, the parent company, invested nearly $4 million in the new dealership that includes a 2,500 sq. ft. parts warehouse and a driver lounge with Wi-Fi access.
“With our new facility, we can offer a higher level of service to logging and mining companies, plus contractors, pick-up and delivery couriers, industrial manufacturers and line haulers,” Cadrin added.
The new space is located at at 2953 85th Rue in Saint-Georges on nearly 6 acres. It is open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday and offers 24-hour emergency service. The phone number is 418-227-5100 or toll-free 844-303-5100.
