RENTON, Wash. — Kenworth is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its Renton truck plant.
“The employees at the Renton plant have played a key role in Kenworth’s success over the past 20 years. Along with well-trained employees, we utilize leading-edge technology, production and logistics systems to build quality Kenworth trucks for both on- and off-highway applications,” said Judy McTigue, Kenworth-Renton plant manager. “Quality, pride and technology go into every Kenworth truck that goes down the Renton assembly line, and our trucks are known throughout the industry for their excellent performance, reliability and durability.”
Kenworth notes nearly half its current employees have been there since the plant opened in 1993. The facility has produced more than 130,000 Kenworth trucks, and now builds the T600, T800, W900, C500, K500 and 963 models, along with some medium-duty models.
