“To win the Kenworth Medium Duty Dealer of the Year Award for 2014 – the same year we celebrated our 65th anniversary as a Kenworth dealer – is very rewarding. This achievement came from a lot of hard work and dedication from our staff, particularly our sales team and our parts and service teams,” said Kari Rihm, who serves as Rihm Kenworth president and dealer principal.
“We have dedicated medium duty truck sales representatives who possess extensive knowledge of Kenworth's medium duty product line and understand the varying needs of customers who use them in their business. They match the right trucks with the best specification to optimize driver comfort and productivity, and by doing so, lower operating cost for the customer,” said Rihm. “Our service department provides medium duty operators with after-hours service through an overnight shift and takes a proactive approach to scheduling regular maintenance on their trucks.” Rihm Kenworth, which operates locations in St. Paul, Albert Lea and Sauk Centre, Minn., and Superior, Wis., captured the top sales spot in medium duty sales among Kenworth dealers in 2014.
The annual Kenworth Medium Duty Dealer of the Year Award recognizes outstanding leadership and dealership focus on growing Kenworth’s medium duty truck business. Kenworth’s medium duty line features the Kenworth T170, T270, T370, T440 and T470 conventional trucks, and the K270 and K370 cabovers.
“Rihm Kenworth excelled in total conventional and cabover sales, and sold every major medium duty configuration Kenworth offers to help earn the 2014 Kenworth Medium Duty Dealer of the Year award,” said Preston Feight, Kenworth general manager and PACCAR vice president. “Rihm Kenworth’s dedication at spec’ing the right Kenworth products to meet medium duty customers’ needs and its outstanding support after the sale contributed to its success.”
