Volvo Group Australia’s dealer partner Western Truck Group (WTG) has opened a brand-new facility at 24-26 Empire Crescent, Chevallum, on the Sunshine Coast.
The new dealership offers Volvo, UD and Mack truck customers on the Sunshine Coast with upgraded facilities and services.
The new, large and modern dealership is Western Truck Group’s tenth site, with operations now stretching through regional Queensland, New South Wales and the Northern Territory, from Dubbo to Darwin.
The old WTG Sunshine Coast site at 6 Dual Avenue, Warana, closed in early November, with trading moving over to the new site.
Western Truck Group has made this investment in its dealer network with the goal to ultimately provide better services for customers.
In addition to the new 14-bay state-of-the-art workshop, this 9000 square metre site has a full drive-through wash bay and will operate from Monday to Friday, 8am to 5pm and Saturday mornings by appointment. Truck sales will also be managed out of the new dealership, in addition to parts and service.
“We have outgrown our current, ageing facilities, with access now difficult as a result of change of industry in our current location. With the appointment of truck sales, we required a larger, more accessible retail offer,” said Russell Edwards, WTG general manager business services.
“As part of our commitment to providing high levels of service for our customers, we are investing heavily in our dealer network. We will be recruiting for a number of roles with the opening of the new Chevallum site, including technicians, parts interpreters, sales cadets, auto electricians, apprentices and yard hands.”
Volvo Group Australia is thoroughly supportive of WTG’s move. “The purpose-built facility aims to provide better services for Volvo, UD and Mack truck customers, as well as more opportunities and more local jobs for Queenslanders,” said Richard Singer, vice president of services and retail at Volvo Group Australia.
“We extend our heartfelt thanks to the WTG team, who have invested heavily in their network over the past several years and are committed to providing excellent customer service.”
WTG was established in 2018 after the purchase of what was formerly Queensland Truck Centre. WTG has established itself as a vital network partner, looking after the transport needs of customers right across Australia.
