Wallwork Kenworth has opened a new, 18,400 square-foot parts and service operation near U.S. Highway 2.
A member of the Kenworth dealer network of 310 locations in the United States and Canada, the new Wallwork Kenworth facility is located on just over 3 acres at 2300 20th Ave. S.E. in Minot. The dealership features seven service bays, with one bay dedicated to providing Kenworth PremierCare® ExpressLube services. The 1,000 square-foot parts show room is complemented with a 7,000 square-foot parts warehouse to provide excellent parts availability. The new location also offers parts delivery service and a comfortable driver lounge.
“We’re pleased to offer this new facility as part of our continuing efforts to expand customer support throughout the region,” said Dave Silbernagel, branch manager of Wallwork Kenworth – Minot. “During the past two years, we’ve made significant investments by also opening a new full-service facility in Bismarck, and a parts and service facility in Williston.
“Our newest facility serves the town of Minot, which has a population of nearly 41,000, and the neighboring agriculture, oil and coal operations,” continued Silbernagel. “It offers truck operators easy access to U.S. Highway 2, a major east-west corridor running west into Williston, N.D., and Montana and east into Grand Forks, N.D., and Minnesota.” Minot is at the intersection of U.S. Highways 2, 52 and 83, and is the agricultural and trading hub for north North Dakota, southwestern Manitoba, and southeastern Saskatchewan.
Wallwork Kenworth – Minot is open from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The phone number is 701-837-2800. The service manager is Mike Zinke, who also serves as service manager of Wallwork Kenworth – Bismarck, and the parts manager is Lyle Landsiedel.
For its outstanding support, Wallwork Kenworth received two 2010 silver awards from Kenworth earlier this year, one for outstanding parts and service support and the other for overall dealer performance. Last year, it was named 2009 Kenworth Customer Support Dealer of the Year for the United States and Canada, earned a prestigious 2009 Kenworth Gold Award for overall dealer performance, and was recognized for excellence as one of six finalists for the 2009 Kenworth Medium Duty Dealer of the Year.
