Truck Stops buys into Blenheim
TRUCK STOPS HAS AGREED TO BUY Blenheim truck servicing business, Transmar Services – expanding what it says is New Zealand’s largest commercial truck servicing network to 17 branches.
Sime Darby Motors managing director for NZ and Australia, Patrick McKenna, says that the acquisition is in line with the company’s strategy to focus on the expansion of its retail car and commercial truck footprints here and in Australia.
“Growing the NZ nationwide network to extend the convenient and e cient servicing of the Sime Darby Commercial Groups franchise family of Hino, Volvo, Mack and UD trucks has always been our objective. Adding the strategically important Blenheim location to the existing Truck Stops’ network is very ful lling.”
Truck Stops, a subsidiary of Sime Darby Motor Group (NZ), says that it is now “the largest wholly-owned truck servicing network in the country.”
Sime Darby Motors NZ’s commercial footprint nationally is complemented by a number of dealers and service agents, giving the business a national coverage.
Transmar’s Blenheim business starts trading as Truck Stops early this month.
McKenna adds that “throughout the sale process it has been our priority to ensure that Transmar Services employees would be o ered employment within Truck Stops.”
