Lin­fox adds Ken­worths

New Zealand Truck & Driver - - News -

A DOZEN NEW KEN­WORTHS ARE ad­ding a new look to Lin­fox’s New Zealand op­er­a­tion.

It’s the rst time in go­ing on 20 years that Ken­worths have been seen here in the colours of the gi­ant Aus­tralian-owned Lin­fox op­er­a­tion.

at makes it un­usual enough to war­rant a photo op­por­tu­nity in Mel­bourne – with key Ken­worth and Lin­fox ex­ecs. Pic­tured, from left, at the hand-over of the keys at the Ken­worth fac­tory in Bayswa­ter, are: Ken­worth Aus­tralia di­rec­tor of sales and mar­ket­ing Brad May, Lin­fox exec Ray Gam­ble, Ken­worth Aus­tralia MD An­drew Had­jikakou, Lin­fox ex­ec­u­tive chair­man Peter Fox and South­pac Trucks chief ex­ec­u­tive Maarten Durent.

Durent is un­der­stand­ably happy to see Ken­worth back in one of the best-known and iconic eets in NZ and says: “Lin­fox are great peo­ple to work with. We al­ready ser­vice their trail­ers and this ex­pands on an al­ready great re­la­tion­ship we have with them.

“It’s im­por­tant be­cause it di­versi es our ve­hi­cle sales across a wider group of cus­tomers. And it’s great for our ser­vice op­er­a­tion in Auck­land, where most of th­ese trucks are based.”

e T409s are a mix of 6x4s and 8x4s, all of them run­ning 510-horse­power PACCAR MX13 en­gines with Ea­ton Ul­traShift au­to­mated man­ual trans­mis­sions.
