Brown and Hurley opens new Warwick parts branch

Strategically located in Warwick, where several highways meet, Brown and Hurley’s newest TRP parts store will cater to those in and around Queensland’s Southern Downs area.

TRP stands for ‘Trusted, Reliable and Proven’, supplying parts to keep trucks and trailers running smoothly. 

Brown and Hurley’s new Warwick TRP branch will carry approximately 1000 lines of stock on site, equating to around $500,000 worth of product. 

TRP has a rich history in Australia, and understands the Australian truck and trailer market. We face unique conditions down under that can cause parts to wear out much more quickly than in other parts of the world. And so, TRP’s parts are built as tough as they need to be to survive in Australia’s difficult and often challenging environment.

Brown and Hurley knows transport and knows it very well, having been in business for 77 years. 

The company has worked with TRP to ensure parts are of the highest quality and built specifically for the needs of Australia’s transport operators. 

Dealer principal at Brown and Hurley Kenworth DAF Toowoomba, Brian Bennetts, explained, “This store has been in planning for the past two years. The reason we’ve decided to open a store here is to service the Southern Downs region, which we’ve previously serviced out of Toowoomba, Darra and Kyogle. There are a lot of our big customers here among the likes of Wickham’s and Frasers, who’ve supported us for a long time so we want to be able to better support those customers that have supported us. The number of parts sold in the area warranted us putting a parts store here.

“It’ll carry Kenworth, DAF and trailer parts. Being in close vicinity to the parts distribution centre in Brisbane means that if there’s a part we haven’t got on site, we can get it overnight.”

The store is located on the Cunningham Highway, behind the Ampol service station at the northern entrance into Warwick.

John Maiore, who possesses over 36 years of experience in the parts space, has come on board as manager of the new store. 

For easy access to truck drivers, it’s located on the Cunningham Highway, right behind the Ampol service station at the northern entrance into Warwick.

Group Parts Manager at Brown and Hurley, Breen Schipke, added, “The new store is strategically located here at Warwick at the intersection of the Cunningham and New England highways meaning trucks will be heading through on the Cunningham from east to west and on the New England from the north to south. 

“We’re looking to be able to grow our customer base with those who are based in that area as well as those passing through.

“One area we particularly want to grow is in the trailer parts space – it’s not something that has been as big for us in the past as it should have been, so we really want to be sure we cover that part of the industry here in the Southern Downs.”

The Brown and Hurley Kenworth DAF TRP store will be opening its doors in mid-July, however will be celebrating a grand opening event on Friday August 4. 

John Maiore and his team will be on hand to discuss your parts needs. 

Triple M will also be live on site, and there will be giveaways, a barbeque and chance to take a look through the new store. Brown and Hurley salesmen will also be on hand for those wanting to discuss the purchase of a new truck.
