Kenworth de Mont-Laurier has opened a new parts and service location in Mont-Laurier, about 150 miles northwest of Montreal, on the Trans-Canada Highway/Quebec Route 117.

“This new location provides operators in the Hautes-Laurentides region a more convenient location to get service for their trucks,” said Luc Lefebvre, general manager of Kenworth de Mont-Laurier.

The dealership is located on a 22-acre site on Boulevard Albiny Paquette (Trans-Canada Highway/Quebec Route 117) about a mile east of Quebec Route 309. Route 117 is a provincial highway within Quebec, between Montreal and the Quebec/Ontario border. It is the only direct route between southern Quebec and the Hautes-Laurentides region.

The Haute-Laurentides region has a growing economy dominated by timber harvesting, mining and agriculture, industries with a high demand for medium to heavy duty trucks and truck parts and service, Lefebvre said.

“With the popularity and reputation of Kenworth trucks, the high visibility of the property with more than 600 feet of frontage facing a major provincial route and easy access to Route 117, Kenworth de Mont-Laurier will become the dealer of choice for more truck fleets and operators,” Lefebvre predicted. “The property offers truck drivers room to maneuver and park their trucks and trailers as well as the space in the building to expand the truck dealership and add more service bays and parts warehouse space as our business grows. We will also expand our hours of operation as the business grows.”

Kenworth de Mont-Laurier, which is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, is located in an 18,700 square-foot facility at 2076, boulevard Albiny Paquette (Quebec Route 117). The location offers convenient parts delivery and includes a comfortable waiting area with wi-fi access for truck drivers to check their emails and submit reports while waiting for their trucks to be serviced. The phone number is 819-440-2266. Danny Poudier is the service manager and Dominique Taillon is the parts manager.
