Velocity Vehicle Group Australia (VVGA) has announced the fulfillment of the transaction to acquire the Daimler Trucks Huntingwood dealership from Daimler Truck and Bus Australia Pacific. The ownership change takes effect on 16 October 2021.
“We are excited to have Daimler Trucks Huntingwood join the VVGA family,” said VVGA Executive Vice President, Richard Higgins.
“The dealership has a 30-plus year history of providing exceptional support to a large and diverse customer base and the experienced and dedicated team of circa 125 people are an important and welcome addition to the VVGA network.”
Higgins said the team had been leaders in Daimler’s Elite Support program which he said aligns well with the VVGA pillars of Speed, Value and Trust.
“With our focus on these values, we aim to continue to grow and develop the Huntingwood dealership to provide service that meets the ongoing needs of our customers,” he said.
In addition to this latest acquisition, VVGA operates 15 dealerships across Australia, exclusively selling Daimler truck, bus and van products across its network.
The company purchased these dealerships from Eagers Automotive (Adtrans) on 1 May 2021.
Daimler Truck and Bus Australia Pacific Aftersales and Network Operations Director, Greg Lovrich, said VVGA knows what good customer service looks like and understands the expectations of commercial vehicle customers.
“We are confident Daimler Trucks Huntingwood customers will benefit from VVGA’s commitment to build capabilities across its network to ensure it can consistently deliver an excellent experience,” said Lovrich.
Daimler Trucks Huntingwood is located in one of the main transport and distribution regions in western Sydney and has a strong reputation and presence within the industry.
Its location, culture and customer base make it an important and complementary addition to VVGA’s nationwide network.
