Ken­worth On­tario has re­lo­cated its Ottawa area deal­er­ship to a new and mod­ern, 43,000 square­foot fa­cil­ity about 35 kilo­me­ters south­east of Par­lia­ment Hill in the Cana­dian cap­i­tal.

Ken­worth On­tario – Ottawa is lo­cated on 10 acres with con­ve­nient ac­cess to Trans-canada High­way 417, a ma­jor truck route through the On­tario prov­ince. The deal­er­ship has seven drive-through ser­vice bays, in­clud­ing two bays with ful­l­length pits and room to ser­vice up to 14 trac­tors, a large driver’s lounge with satel­lite tele­vi­sion and vend­ing ma­chines, and show­ers for driv­ers.

The ser­vice depart­ment of­fers 2-hour truck di­ag­no­sis through Ken­worth Premier­care Ex­press­lane, and features two 7.5-ton over­head cranes, ded­i­cated ex­press lube bays, and a ded­i­cated bay to ser­vice trucks with nat­u­ral gas en­gines. The parts op­er­a­tion in­cludes a 4,200 square­foot dis­play area, and 8,000 square­foot parts ware­house. A new truck in­door dis­play al­lows cus­tomers to in­spect the new­est Ken­worth trucks in the com­fort of a tem­per­a­ture­con­trolled show­room.

“We have built our new fa­cil­ity in a large, new in­dus­trial park that is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing rapid growth. Our new deal­er­ship features the latest tech­nol­ogy. Our ser­vice tech­ni­cians have plenty of room to com­plete full truck and trailer ser­vic­ing in our seven drive-through ser­vice bays with two full-length pits. The new fa­cil­ity also has the ca­pac­ity to en­able tech­ni­cians to of­fer rapid di­ag­nos­tics for other cus­tomers, so they can get their trucks re­paired and their driv­ers back on the road quickly,” said Guy Mercier, dealer prin­ci­pal and pres­i­dent of the Ken­worth On­tario Group, which op­er­ates ad­di­tional Ken­worth On­tario lo­ca­tions in Kingston, Peter­bor­ough and Thun­der Bay, On­tario. The dealer group also op­er­ates Canada’s first TRP store lo­cated in Belleville.
