Edmonton Kenworth Moves Fort McMurray Dealership and Doubles Remote Service Capacity

Sept. 21, 2014

FORT MCMURRAY, Alberta, Sept. 18, 2014 ““ Edmonton Kenworth recently moved its Fort McMurray dealership to a 13,000 square-foot facility with a larger parts department and a four-service bay service department.

Edmonton Kenworth also doubled the capacity of its Fort McMurray remote service fleet by adding two Kenworth T370 mobile service trucks. Edmonton Kenworth-Fort McMurray now has four remote service trucks.

The Edmonton Kenworth-Fort McMurray parts and service location is located on 1.5 acres at Unit A, 240 Taiganova Crescent, in an industrial park just off Alberta Highway 63. The new location offers a 4,700 square-foot parts department with more room for parts storage so the dealership can stay well-stocked with quality Kenworth proprietary and TRP all-makes parts. Three high-density, parts storage devices with state-of-the-art software improves the dealership’s accuracy in parts ordering and fulfillment.

“Edmonton Kenworth is committed to supporting customers in the Fort McMurray area,” said Dale Sorenson, director of service for Edmonton Kenworth, which is a major supplier of trucks, parts and service to the oilfield, logging, and highway markets in the Edmonton region and northern Alberta. “Moving our Fort McMurray dealership into this new location allows us to offer servicing and minor repairs, giving local and transient customers more options. In the past, we only serviced vehicles at customer locations or at work sites with our remote service trucks.

“With this expansion of the dealership we are now able to offer our customers the opportunity to purchase their Kenworth and TRP parts in Ft McMurray, rather than waiting a day for the parts to arrive from Edmonton, which would delay their repair,” said Jo Frost, director of parts for Edmonton Kenworth. “We also have a drivers lounge for those who are waiting for their repair.”

The Fort McMurray mobile service trucks are on-call 24/7 to provide on-site service at customer locations. The parts department at the Fort McMurray location is open from 7 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., Monday through Saturday. This location also offers delivery of parts to their customers. The service department is open from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. The phone number is 780-743-0819.

Edmonton Kenworth Fort McMurray is a branch location of the Edmonton Kenworth dealerships in the Northside and Southside of Edmonton. Those three Edmonton Kenworth locations and Kenworth Lloydminster are all operated by Edmonton Kenworth, which is part of the Kenworth dealer network of more than 345 locations in the United States and Canada.
