Rihm Kenworth, one of Kenworth's oldest continually-operating family-owned truck dealers, has opened its fourth location, a 16,000-square-foot, full-service dealership in Sauk Centre, Minn.

The new Rihm Kenworth facility is located at 805 Shamrock Lane on almost 9 acres near the intersection of U.S. Interstate 94 and U.S. Highway 71, just off of Exit 127 on I-94.

The dealership features nine service bays, with one bay dedicated to providing Kenworth PremierCare Express Lube services. The 5,500-square-foot parts department includes a 1,500-square-foot display area and a 4,000-square-foot parts warehouse. Regional parts delivery complements the new dealership's parts department.

"Sauk Centre is a hub for truckers in central Minnesota, facing I-94, a main east-west truck transportation corridor through Minnesota," says Kari Rihm, president and dealer principal of Rihm Kenworth.

The company was founded in 1932 as a truck dealership by John B. Rihm, grandfather of Kari's late husband, John. In 1949, it joined the Kenworth dealer network and became the first Kenworth dealer east of the Mississippi River. Now, Rihm Kenworth operates three other locations in Albert Lea and St. Paul, Minn., and Superior, Wis. Recently, Rihm Kenworth earned the 2011 Kenworth Medium Duty Dealer of the Year Award.

Rihm Kenworth-Sauk Centre is open from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday.
