Murwillumbah Truck Centre has the winning formula it seems, yet again taking out the Fuso Regional Dealer of The Year Award for the second time for Daimler Truck & Bus.
This year though, the accolades were further sweetened when the dealership were also awarded Runner Up Dealer of Year for Mercedes Benz trucks. The two awards capping off a three year consecutive run of Daimler accolades for the Truck Centre since 2015.
Like so many businesses in the area, 2017 was a testing year for the Truck Centre, still family owned, the floods of March threatened to really injure operations. But despite the literal inundation, the team rallied and in a show of solidarity pulled together to finish the year in one of their strongest positions.
Owner of the business and dealer principal, Steve Bedser, said that it was testament to the staff, from everyone to sales, service and parts that they were able to withstand the deluge. “If there was a silver lining, we have a renewed focus and we’ve really grown together as a team,” said Steve.
Murwillumbah Truck Centre provides integrated trucking solutions offering custom builds, new ready built and reliable used products all backed by factory trained technicians and a huge range of spare parts. It’s this combination and their infallible commitment to their customers, plus the advice and support of over 30 years experience, that has so many truck buyers, local and interstate, visiting the dealership and returning.
Also, adding to their 2017 success, has been the release of the new generation of Mercedes Benz trucks with the new products tested for 18 months and one million kilometres in intensive Australian conditions on every major freight highway prior to their launch. With a real focus on their three pillars of comfort, reliability and efficiency, Mercedes Benz spent over two billion dollars in research and development for their new range and it definitely shows. “Alongside our Fuso and Freightliner offering, the new Mercedes Benz range has certainly complemented our product line up enabling us to confidently provide customers with outstanding product at all market entry points,” added Steve.
Receiving this year’s awards further confirmed for the team something they’ve always known to be true, the recipe for success still germinates from their simple commitment – getting Northern Rivers businesses on the road and keeping them there.
