Kenworth of Buffalo has acquired a Kenworth dealership in the Boston area and changed the name of its expanded, five-dealer organization to the Kenworth Northeast Group.

The dealer group recently purchased the Kenworth dealership in Stoughton, Mass., along with territorial rights for Eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island from Tri-State Kenworth in Enfield, Conn.

As part of the expansion, Kenworth Northeast Group dealerships are now known by names better indicative of the market region each location serves.

Kenworth Northeast Group maintains its headquarters in Buffalo, N.Y., and operates the following full-service facilities: Kenworth of Albany, Kenworth of Buffalo, Kenworth of Rochester, and Kenworth of Syracuse in New York state, and Kenworth of Boston in Massachusetts.

Were pleased to increase customer support with the addition of Kenworth of Boston to join our four excellent dealerships in the state of New York," says Dennis Dintino, president of Kenworth Northeast Group. "We plan to deepen our market penetration and expand market share through the growth of existing operations and the pursuit of new opportunities in Eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

The dealer group was one of just five 2010 Kenworth Gold Award winners in the United States and Canada. The Kenworth Gold Award recognizes top-performing Kenworth dealerships that have excelled well beyond industry expectations. In October, the dealer group received a Kenworth Silver Award for 2011 parts and service excellence.
