MB OPENS PERTH COMPETENCY BUS CENTRE
MERCEDES-BENZ has started to roll out its bespoke bus Centre of Competency facilities strategy, with the first venue opening in Perth.
With such venues to start up in major population centres across Australia, the Perth bus Centre of Competency features bus-focused staff with specialised training, unique equipment, increased parts supply and dedicated bus bays.
Mercedes-Benz Truck and Bus Australia Pacific director Michael May was on hand to cut a ceremonial cake with Daimler Trucks Perth dealer principal Sean Edwards, and Mercedes-Benz Bus senior manager Mehmet Karal, along other key bus staff members.
May says Mercedes-Benz has been increasing its investment and commitment to its bus customers across Australia in recent years, but was now ‘doubling down’ on that commitment.
“By opening a series of Centre of Competency facilities across major metropolitan centres in
Australia, starting with Perth, we are demonstrating a sharper focus on the needs of our customers,” May explained.
