Kenworth Sales Opens New Utah Facility to Serve Oil and Gas Industry

Kenworth Sales Company has opened its newest location, a 10,000-square-foot parts and service facility in Naples, Utah, near U.S. Route 40.

A member of the Kenworth dealer network of 308 locations in the United States and Canada, the new Kenworth Sales Company facility is located east of Vernal, Utah, on just over 5 acres at 5259 South 5400 East in Naples. The dealership features six service bays, with one bay dedicated to providing Kenworth PremierCare Express Lube services. A 750 square-foot parts retail display area complements a 3,500-square-foot parts warehouse offering excellent parts availability. The new location also offers parts delivery service and a comfortable driver lounge.

“Continued growth in oil and gas production and exploration in the nearby South Ouray and the Res Wash fields has created a great need for this new parts and service facility,” said Kip Ekker, general manager of the Vernal location. “We’re pleased to respond to that need with this new store located in the remote northeastern corner of Utah, 30 miles west of the Colorado border. It will allow us to provide our customers immediate access to TRP Aftermarket Parts and five factory-trained service technicians.

“This new facility serves the town of Vernal and its neighboring communities, including Naples,” Ekker said. “It’s located a few hundred yards south of the corner of U.S. Route 40 and South 5400 East within sight of the highway. Before we opened here, customers had to drive two hours south to our facility in Price, Utah, or three hours west to our West Valley City location in the Salt Lake City area.”

Kenworth Sales Company - Vernal is open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. The phone number is 435-789-1430. The service manager is Colby Shaw and the parts manager is Dane Christiansen.
