Wisconsin Kenworth celebrated the grand opening of its new dealership in Windsor, Wis.

The company hosted a celebration at the 75,000-sq.-ft. facility. Nearly 500 customers and guests attended the event, including Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch; Mike Dozier, Kenworth general manager and PACCAR vice president; and Kevin Baney, Kenworth chief engineer.

During the event, Wisconsin Kenworth showcased its new building design.

“Our new Windsor location more than doubles our capacity to service our customers in this market,” says Mike Clark, president of CSM Co., the parent company of Wisconsin Kenworth.

According to the company, the new dealership is among Wisconsin’s largest commercial truck facilities, as it features a 36-bay service shop and a 23,000-sq.-ft. parts department.

“Our new Windsor facility’s parts department features an industry-first – a drive-through parts pickup area that’s covered and heated, offering our customers a fast, comfortable and convenient way to pick up parts,” Clark says. “New high-density pallet racking and storage systems have enabled us to triple the size of our parts inventory. This will result in faster turnaround on equipment repairs and more uptime for customers.”

Other notable features added to the facility’s design are a chassis dynamometer with a water recirculation cooling tower to reduce water waste; specially equipped bays certified to service natural gas powered heavy-duty trucks; and high-speed recharge stations for diagnostic computers throughout the shop.

The Windsor dealership provides drivers with plenty of room to maneuver and park their trucks and trailers, Wisconsin Kenworth adds. Parts and service will be available at this location 24 hours a day Monday through Friday and from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday.

CSM Co. operates 16 Kenworth locations in Wisconsin, Michigan, Texas and Nebraska.
