Daimler Truck and Bus has announced the sale of its Huntingwood dealership to Velocity Vehicle Group.
The sale comes after Daimler Truck and Bus divested dealership operations at Laverton in 2016 and Somerton last year and represents its exit of the own-retail sector.
Daimler Truck and Bus Australia Pacific President and CEO, Daniel Whitehead, said the Huntingwood sale is good news for Daimler customers.
“Moving away from own retail allows for a singular focus on providing Daimler Truck and Bus customers the best truck and bus solutions across all segments,” he said.
“Selling and servicing commercial vehicles is the speciality of our dedicated truck dealer partners, so it makes sense for them to provide our channel to market and to offer industry leading support for our customers,” said Whitehead.
Daimler Truck and Bus Australia Pacific Aftersales and Network Operations Director, Greg Lovrich, noted that Daimler Trucks Huntingwood had been a strong performer throughout the years and is currently the highest volume Daimler dealership in Australia.
“Daimler Trucks Huntingwood has been one of our best performing dealerships, a multi award-winner with a wealth of experience from spare parts and service through to the showroom floor,” he said.
“We want to thank the employees for their commitment and wish them continued success under the stewardship of Velocity Vehicle Group.”
