Wideland Group’s Sunshine Coast branch has taken the keys to a new Toyota Hilux, following a recent competition run by Cummins-Meritor and Penske.
The Wideland Group sells and hires trucks, construction, and agricultural equipment, along with passenger and commercial vehicles to customers throughout Queensland and New South Wales.
It also runs workshops, with field service maintenance and 24/7 breakdown support and offers a huge range of Parts to support our full product range.
The Wideland Group was fist established in 2007 and currently operates across eight locations, with the Sunshine Coast branch being the newest, opening up in August 2021. “It’s a new location for us. Since relocating here we’ve been really focused on growing the local market with our customer base in and around the Sunshine Coast, delivering parts and offering good old fashioned customer service to our clients,” explained Mark Dobson, Wideland Group Fixed Operations Manager.
The ute giveaway was open to all Penske Cummins-Meritor dealer locations Australia-wide. To be in the running, dealers had to meet a set of criteria including a parts target for selling products during the promotional period, showing the most growth in that segment from the previous year and running a Cummins-Meritor themed showroom display.
Dobson said parts manager Dan Mills and his team at Wideland Sunshine Coast were thrilled with the win. “My local Sunny Coast parts team were the ones who won this award through their hard work and getting out and seeing customers and growing the Penske and Cummins-Meritor Brand in the area. They were all really stoked to win the prize.”
The $40,000 Hilux was handed over on March 30. “It’s being used as a parts delivery vehicle,” said Dobson. “We have a truck too for getting the bulkier items out to our customers, but for day-to-day parts deliveries, we’re using the new Hilux.”
