Truck and trailer parts business Truckzone has opened its 11th branch in Rockhampton, building on its plans to extend its nationwide network of stores.
“We are excited about our new branch opening. It is important for us to grow the Truckzone family and expand our national footprint. Rockhampton was one of the priorities for us as our customer base is growing in this area, so we made sure to find a central convenient location for our customers,” said Mick Henderson, CEO of SMP Group.
Specialising in parts for American and Japanese truck manufacturers, Truckzone is the new trading name for Coburg Truck Parts, Gleeman Truck Parts and Partspeek Japanese Parts – three businesses owned by the SMP Group that have joined forces and now operate as one united entity.
“We have recently consolidated three of our six businesses, Gleeman, Coburg and Partspeek, all in truck parts and accessories, to create one strong entity helping us to deliver the best customer experience. Our goal is to pass on the benefits of our new developments to our customers. This is only the start of our national commitment with more exciting announcements to come,” Henderson explained.
Centrally located, the new Rockhampton branch features a showroom and warehouse fully stocked with truck and trailer parts and accessories of the well-known brands in Australia.
Rockhampton – the beef capital – is a major regional centre. It has experienced extensive development over the last 15 years, and is set to expand even further with the current construction of a bypass that will ease the traffic between urban areas, starting at the West Rockhampton connection through to the Parkhurst connection, which is a future growth area.
“The opening of the new branch was required to meet the growing local customer demand and I’m very pleased that some of the most experienced part interpreters in North Queensland have joined our Rockhampton branch to support our customers,” added Henderson.
“It’s just another way we can deliver on the values at the heart of Truckzone: providing customers with the products they need and trust, when and where they need them, at a competitive price, with industry leading advice and support. We have a catalogue of 30,000 competitively priced lines and our stock levels keep growing in all our stores, including Rockhampton.
“We hope to see lots of our customers and local community members soon in the Rockhampton store and look forward to showing off our new branch.”
The Truckzone Rockhampton branch is located at 113 Gladstone Road, Allenstown, Queensland. Ph: 07 3320 7290.
