Inland Kenworth recently celebrated the grand opening of its new, 100,000-square-foot, full-service dealership in Prince George.
The grand opening, which was open to the public, featured food and refreshments, vendor booths, and the appearance of company officials and local dignitaries during a brief ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new facility.
“Our new facility reflects record-setting growth in the economy of Prince George, considered as the ‘northern capital’ of British Columbia,” said Bill Currie, president and chief operating officer of Inland Kenworth. “The new Prince George location will provide customers with an excellent facility to view Kenworth new and used trucks, receive outstanding service support with fast diagnostic response, while also keeping fleets, contractors, and government agencies well-stocked with truck parts.”
Currie noted that the dealership outgrew its former Quinn Street location, which served the needs of local customers and truck fleets, and operators for nearly 60 years. The new location is at 7337 Boundary Avenue in the Prince George Global Logistics Park, south of the downtown area and about 11 kilometers southeast of its previous site.
