Penske opens new truck facility across the ditch

Penske New Zealand will open the doors of its brand-new Tauranga facility on May 1, providing full retail sales, parts, and service support for the Western Star Trucks, MAN Truck & Bus, Dennis Eagle, mtu, and Detroit brands.

The purpose-built building comprises 2,548m2 of workshop space, a 448m2 parts warehouse, and 745m2 of retail and office space, including a drivers’ lounge.

Situated on 14,381m2 of land, the state-of-the-art facility houses eleven 30-metre truck bays, three pre-delivery inspection bays, a transport engineering workshop, a 30-metre drive-through wash bay, a full-length service pit, and two flush-mounted 24-metre tandem full vehicle hoists.

“Our team in Tauranga is very excited to be relocating to our new branch next week and welcoming our customers to a bespoke facility,” said Tim Geenty, branch manager – Tauranga, Penske New Zealand.

“Our purpose-built infrastructure will allow us to deliver exceptional customer service now and into the future.”

Penske New Zealand country manager Brent Warner added that the new branch formed a key part of the organisation’s future plans.

“Further to the opening of our brand-new Christchurch facility in 2019, with our new Tauranga site we are demonstrating our commitment to the New Zealand market and our customers,” Warner said.

“Penske New Zealand has bold growth plans, and our investment in our people and locations is integral to that.”

Penske New Zealand’s new facility is located at 115 Kaweroa Drive, Omanawa, Tauranga.
