Fenton, MO (May 4, 2018) – CIT Trucks celebrated the complete renovation of its Kenworth Truck dealership located at 185 Soccer Park Road in Fenton, Missouri with a Grand Re-Opening Celebration attended by over 300 customers and community leaders. Guests learned about the latest industry technology from over twenty-five vendors, attended a ribbon cutting ceremony, toured the dealership, enjoyed dinner and took home many prizes and giveaways.


“We’ve built many lasting partnerships with the customers in this market,” stated Jim Fields, General Manager of CIT Trucks - Fenton. “They welcomed us to the area and we wanted to show our appreciation to the transportation industry and the community for the support we’ve received.”


Following the purchase of the assets of Kenworth of St. Louis in late 2015, CIT Trucks completed a $2.2 million renovation of the facility, adjacent grounds, and customer parking areas. The 38,000 square foot building underwent an extensive remodel including a complete interior and exterior renovation and the construction of 6,000 square feet of additional parts warehousing.  


A driver’s lounge featuring cable TV and WiFi, complete with showers and laundry, was also added during the renovation along with updated office space, a parts showroom and training area designed for both employee and customer education.  The eighteen Kenworth Premier Care Gold Certified service bays include state-of-the-art tooling and Express Lanes served by highly trained service technicians to keep customers on the road. For added convenience, CIT Trucks - Fenton has also expanded hours of operation from 7AM-Midnight, Monday-Friday and 7AM-3:30PM on Saturdays.


“We are honored to expand our facilities and services into Missouri and look forward to growing our offerings to the transportation industry,” says Bruce Thomas, Vice President & Dealer Principal of CIT Trucks. “With over seventy-five years of combined industry experience leading the Fenton dealership, the CIT Trucks’ team is dedicated to serving our loyal customers with excellence in truck sales, parts, and service.”


The full-service dealership represents Kenworth Truck Company, offering new Class 5-8 vehicles, premium used trucks, parts and service, along with finance, rental and leasing solutions, and body shop repair. Located at the interchange of I-270 and I-44 with convenient access from major highways I-70 and I-55, CIT Trucks – Fenton is positioned to serve both the south-central Missouri heavy-duty truck market and long-haul drivers with routes passing through the St. Louis Metro area.
