Papé Kenworth Opens Three Parts and Service Facilities in Oregon and Washington
EUGENE, Ore., May 17, 2013 - Papé Kenworth has opened new parts and service locations in Klamath Falls and Tangent, Ore., and Kelso, Wash.
"With the addition of these three new dealerships, Papé Kenworth has significantly expanded its service footprint throughout Oregon and southwest Washington," said Jason Muggy, general manager of Papé Kenworth's Southern Oregon region. "The new Papé Kenworth locations serve large local market areas to keep customers moving forward in a variety of industries, primarily logging and forestry, lumber and building materials, over-the-road trucking, and agriculture."
Papé Kenworth - Kelso
Papé Kenworth - Kelso is located at 2504 Talley Way, near the southern end of the Kelso-Longview Airport, and less than a mile from Exit 36A off Interstate 5. The 10,000-square-foot facility offers room for an extensive parts inventory tailored for the local market. There are four dedicated Kenworth service bays, a four-post service lift, and a mobile service truck, which can respond to the remote service needs of logging companies and other customers. The 5-acre site provides plenty of room for customers to park their trucks and trailers.

"That makes the location especially convenient for customers in southwest Washington and northwest Oregon."
