Kenworth Northwest has opened a new 26,400-square-foot, full-service facility in Lakewood, Wash., with easy access to Interstate 5.

“We’re responding to the needs of our customers and other truck operators for a new location in the South Puget Sound area,” said Marshall Cymbaluk, dealer principal and president of Kenworth Northwest. “The new Kenworth Northwest–Lakewood location allows us to provide better service to our local customers and to truck operators running north and south on the I-5 corridor. It’s also close to State Route 512.”

Kenworth Northwest’s Lakewood facility features 13 service bays, a truck wash bay, a well-stocked 5,400-square-foot parts warehouse and a comfortable driver’s lounge. The dealership is located south of Tacoma on three acres at 12507 Pacific Highway S.W., adjacent to Interstate 5 less than a quarter mile southwest of the Bridgeport Way exit and a quarter mile northeast of the Gravelly Lake Drive exit on I-5.

At Kenworth Northwest, truck fleets and operators can purchase from Kenworth’s comprehensive product lineup of aerodynamic, vocational and medium duty trucks. In addition to quality Kenworth proprietary and TRP all-makes parts, excellent service and PACCAR Engine support, the dealership offers PACCAR Financial support through flexible retail loans, and full-service leasing from Kenworth Northwest PacLease for the transportation industry.

“The Lakewood location offers us excellent opportunities to grow our business by providing local companies quality Kenworth trucks as well as dependable parts and service support for their trucks, regardless of manufacturer,” Cymbaluk said.

Besides the Lakewood dealership, Kenworth Northwest operates seven other locations in Anchorage and Fairbanks, Alaska; and Aberdeen, Bellingham, Marysville, SeaTac and Yakima, Wash.

Kenworth Northwest-Lakewood is open from 7 a.m. to midnight Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. The phone number is 253-536-8800 or toll-free 855-436-8800. Key personnel are Ken Mason, operations manager; Rick Barry, new truck sales; J Ellis, service manager; and Ken Mason, parts manager.

The new full-service dealership is part of a Kenworth dealer network of nearly 340 locations in the United States and Canada.
