Kenworth of South Louisiana has opened a new parts and service location that includes three trained service technicians for the Paccar MX-13 engine.

The location, which features two service bays and a parts delivery truck, is near U.S. Highway 90 in Lake Charles, La. The area has seen growth recently due to oil and gas development.

“Lake Charles is the largest community in southwest Louisiana and this new location sits in the heart of the industrial area,” said Scott Oliphant, president of Kenworth of South Louisiana. “The 12 acres provides us the opportunity to grow the facility as demand requires. Already we’re looking at expanding the location to a much larger facility with more service bays and more room for parts storage and display.”

The new Kenworth of South Louisiana dealership is located on 12 acres at 441 S. Goodman Road, just off U.S. Highway 90 and about 1/2 mi. east of Exits 10B and 11 of U.S. Interstate 210. The Lake Charles location joins four other dealerships under the Kenworth of South Louisiana banner in Carencro (Lafayette), Harahan, Houma and Port Allen, La.
