CHARLESTON, S.C., Aug. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- South Carolina's Kenworth dealer is expanding to the Charleston area. Worldwide Equipment, named 2012 American Truck Dealers' Dealer of the Year, will open a third full-service dealership in South Carolina next month. Two previous locations were opened in December 2011 in Columbia and Greenville, S.C.
Operations will begin at the 2740 Azalea Drive location while construction is completed on a brand new, state-of-the-art facility along interstate 26. Services offered include medium and heavy-duty truck sales, parts, service, and a full fleet of leasing and rental units as well.
Worldwide Equipment COO Scott Blevins said, "When we purchased the previous two South Carolina facilities, we had a goal of growth in mind. The overwhelming response from customers across the state has made it possible for us to continue moving forward with that goal, so we are looking forward to getting more acquainted with the Charleston area to provide the high standard of customer service we provide in all of our markets."
Interviews are currently under way for most positions at the dealership and any inquiries should be directed to the Human Resources department at Worldwide Equipment's corporate offices in Prestonsburg, Ky. "We have already found a few great people to add to our existing team and are hoping to add several more in the next few weeks," Blevins said.
