Baltimore is the newest addition to Kenworth’s dealer network, opening Kenworth Mid Atlantic through a partnership between Tri-State Kenworth and Chesapeake Truck. The facility will have 20 service bays, including a two-hour truck diagnosis bay through its PremierCare® ExpressLane. There is also a 26,000-square-foot, full-service dealership and a 12,850-square-foot parts department.

Kenworth has a dealer network of more than 400 locations in the U.S. and Canada.

“We see a tremendous opportunity because of a great need for Kenworth trucks brought on by significant investments in new distribution centers by Amazon, Under Armour and Tradepoint Atlantic,” said Scott Patrohay, dealer principal of Tri-State Kenworth and CEO of Kenworth Mid Atlantic, about opening the Baltimore-area location.

“The addition of Kenworth medium- and heavy-duty trucks fully complements the array of products and services delivered by Chesapeake Truck aimed at helping commercial clients power their businesses,” added Wendy Nieberlein, president of Kenworth Mid Atlantic.

Chesapeake Truck was founded in 1967 by Al Kleeman. Since 2002, the dealership has been run by his two sons.
