The company said the partnership will make available Kalyn Siebert’s specialized trailers to customers throughout Louisiana.
“Kenworth of Louisiana has a presence in every major metropolitan area of Louisiana, which will allow us to connect with customers on a greater scale and broaden our reach,” said Jake Radish, president of Kalyn Siebert.
“With years of experience in the transportation industry, they are a perfect fit for Kalyn Siebert as we work together to solve our customers’ toughest transportation challenges.”
Kenworth of Louisiana, headquartered in Gray LA, has been a family-owned operation for over 50 years. When the company began in 1968, it served the commercial truck industry.
Today, it has expanded to offer trailers, leasing, fabrication, parts and service, heavy truck towing services and off-road and outdoor recreational products. A team of more than 330 employees serve customers from eight locations around the state, including a custom fabrication facility and two body shops.
“The breadth of Kalyn Siebert’s family of products means we can now serve customers in areas we haven’t been able to before,” said Scott Oliphant, president of Kenworth of Louisiana. “We are especially excited to offer the VersaMAXX trailer, as well as their lowboy and sliding axle trailers.
“Kalyn Siebert trailers are a good fit for our customer base, which is primarily vocational. Their company’s proximity to ours also gives us additional advantages with regard to inbound freight.”
