SALT LAKE CITY — Utah-based Kenworth Sales Co. has expanded its network of dealerships with the addition of Truck Enterprises Inc., which is headquartered in Harrisonburg, Virginia. The expansion adds eight Kenworth truck dealerships — located in Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia — to Kenworth Sales Co.’s 23 existing dealerships in Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington state and Wyoming.
Both companies are family-owned businesses that gained customer loyalty and respect as they grew across their respective regions. The Treadway family opened the first Kenworth Sales dealership 75 years ago in Utah. Nearly 60 years ago, the Hartman family opened the first Truck Enterprises dealership in Virginia.
“Our vision is to strengthen the commitment our founders had to selling ‘The World’s Best’ trucks and to providing superior service to the trucking industry. Together, we will continue the shared tradition of fair dealing, friendship, and honesty with our customers,” said Kyle Treadway, third-generation dealer principal for Kenworth Sales Co.
“In order to leverage the reputation built over six decades with customers and within the community, the Truck Enterprises name will not be changed, and I am pleased Truck Enterprises Dealer Principal Jim Hartman will be staying as chairman of the board,” Treadway continued.
