Kenworth of Pennsylvania Relocates York Dealership in Response to Parts and Service Business Growth
YORK, Pa., April 22, 2016 - Responding to a large increase in business, Kenworth of Pennsylvania recently relocated its parts and service location in York, Pennsylvania, to a facility just one block west of its previous location to better serve customers.
Kenworth of Pennsylvania - York
“Since we first opened the York location three years ago, we have seen a significant increase in our parts and service business,” said Tim Mitchell, president of Motor Truck Equipment, the parent company of Kenworth of Pennsylvania. “As a result we’ve quickly outgrown the York dealership. Sitting on 10 acres, this new location will allow us to provide a much larger parking lot, making it easier for truck drivers to maneuver their trucks and find places to park their trailers.”
The new facility, located at 805 Vogelsong Road, is less than a mile northwest of the Pennsylvania Avenue exit on U.S. Highway 30 and about a mile west of the Interstate 83-Highway 30 interchange. The 9,000-square-foot facility nearly doubles the amount of parts and service space available at its previous location. It increases the dealership’s service capabilities by offering customers six service bays, and driver amenities including a premium driver’s lounge, shower and WiFi internet service.
Kenworth of Pennsylvania – York has a 1,600 square-foot parts department, which provides expanded parts delivery. The location’s 4,500-square-foot service department operates two fully-equipped service trucks, which also offer 24-hour emergency roadside service.
The phone number for Kenworth of Pennsylvania – York is 717-848-8797 or toll-free 1-844-822-9147. Rich Smith is branch manager.

Parts and service are available from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday. The service department offers full warranty support for PACCAR MX series engines.
