Kenworth trucks don't need any introduction. The year 2023 marks 100 years of history for the iconic trucking industry.
The journey begins on January 22nd, 1923, when Harry Kent and Edgar Worthinton incorporated the Kenworth Motor Truck Company in Seattle. The company sold 80 trucks in the next year. And that was just the beginning.
Soon, Kenworth was able to make its mark and production increased to nearly two trucks per week. That's when the idea of the custom-built truck became a standard at Kenworth and it's still in place today.
