Isuzu truck dealer opens new premises

New Zealand LCV - - NEWS | ROUND-UP -

ISUZU TRUCKS DEALER, WADSCO TRUCKS, has opened a brand-new, pur­pose-built deal­er­ship in Blen­heim.

It’s been three years in the mak­ing. Own­ers David Clark and John Wadsworth started de­vel­op­ing their ex­pan­sion plan in 2014.

By then they’d been op­er­at­ing for three decades. “Our his­tory stretches way back to 1984, when we first es­tab­lished our­selves in Blen­heim,” says Wadsworth.

“Since that time we’ve grown from a sin­gle garage op­er­a­tion, to an em­ployer of 16 staff op­er­at­ing out of th­ese new world-class premises.”

Co-owner David Clark says Wadsco now has six driv­ethrough bays, all 25 me­tres long, two ser­vice pits and a Cer­tifi­cate of Fit­ness lane.

The work­shop, of­fice, sales, parts and show­room are all un­der­floor-heated with 13 kilo­me­tres of water pip­ing heated by a burner fu­elled by the com­pany’s waste oil.

Isuzu Trucks’ na­tional sales man­ager, Dave Bal­lan­tyne, says the Wadsco deal­er­ship open­ing con­tin­ues the re­cent trend by the Isuzu dealer net­work to in­vest in and de­velop their premises to han­dle busi­ness growth.
