PACCAR Parts presents Dealer of the Year awards at Kenworth Dealer Meeting

Dealer of the Year awards were given out for both TRP and Kenworth parts and service dealers.

PACCAR Parts recognized dealers for exceptional performance at February’s Kenworth Dealer Meeting in Ojai, CA. Awards were presented for both parts and service excellence and top TRP performance. These dealers achieved exceptional growth in parts business and outstanding rates of customer satisfaction.

“We’re thrilled to honor Kenworth dealerships and those who achieved top results this year,” said Laura Bloch, PACCAR Parts general manager and PACCAR vice president. “Their commitment to customer support and growing the business contributed to outstanding results for the overall business and within the parts market.”

The 2023 Kenworth Parts and Service Dealer of the Year award was earned by Kenworth Northeast Group. PACCAR Parts says this award honors dealer excellence in parts performance and retail sales growth as well as significant contributions to overall business growth. The company adds that Kenworth Northeast Group made tremendous strides in advancing the PACCAR Parts Fleet Services program, maintained outstanding service bay capacity and significantly increased investments.


The 2023 TRP Dealer of the Year was awarded to the Palmer Group. This award recognizes excellence in TRP purchase volume and TRP store retail sales, according to PACCAR Parts, which adds that the Palmer Group achieved outstanding results in overall parts purchases and retail sales and made excellent strides in supporting Kenworth customers by growing PACCAR Parts Fleet Services business. The group also opened a TRP store in 2023, bringing their total to four TRP stores.

“PACCAR Parts is proud to take this opportunity to celebrate our strong partnerships with Kenworth dealers,” said Genevieve Bekkerus, PACCAR Parts senior director of marketing. “Congratulations to those awarded for their top-performing results. We look forward to another excellent year in 2024.”
