South Carolina's Kenworth dealer is expanding to the Charleston area. Worldwide Equipment will open a third full-service dealership in South Carolina next month.

Two previous locations in the state 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 new 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.

"When we purchased the previous two South Carolina facilities, we had a goal of growth in mind," said Worldwide Equipment COO Scott Blevins. "The overwhelming response from customers across the state has made it possible for us to continue moving forward with that goal."

Worldwide Equipment is based in Prestonburg, Ky., and was named 2012 American Truck Dealers' Dealer of the Year.
