Truck Stops buys into Blen­heim

New Zealand Truck & Driver - - News -

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.”
