Kenworth is an American manufacturer of medium and heavy-duty class 8 trucks. Originally founded in Portland in 1912 under the name Gerlinger Motor Car Works, the company eventually relocated to Seattle, Washington and traded ownership; being renamed as Kenworth Motor Truck Company in 1923. 

In 1976, Kenworth unveiled a new line of trucks called the Aerodyne Raised-Roof Sleeper, which is shown on the front of the button. This model was an industry first and set the standard for driver comfort.
