FUSO NEW ZEALAND HAS EXPANDED ITS service network to Queenstown, with the appointment of Torque Automotive as the resort town’s rst FUSO parts and service dealership.
Fuso NZ MD Kurtis Andrews says that the company “has been looking to expand its service network in areas that have been historically under-served, and particularly ones that are experiencing strong growth, such as Queenstown.
“We’re pleased that we can now better service the needs of customers in the lower central South Island, which is seeing increasing commercial trac as a result of the local population growth.”
Torque Automotive has been in operation for seven years and owner Kevin Mallon says: “We’ve focused on building strong relationships with our customers; we know the local landscape and operators appreciate good service with a smile.
“We’re now looking forward to taking our oering to the next level by joining with FUSO.”

Andrews says that Mallon’s focus on delivering better service for his customers aligns with Fuso NZ’s own ethos: “We want to be sure that when new dealerships come on board, they will carry the ag for excellent customer service – the level of service that won us an award this year from Daimler Trucks Asia.
“We have high standards and Torque Automotive has ticked every box.”
Mallon says that “having access to top-level training is great for the team and obviously allows us to minimise time o the road for our customers, which is what we’re here for.”
