Iveco Australia appoints new Perth Dealership
Iveco Australia has appointed prominent West Australian Dealership Group, AV Truck Services as a full-service dealership for the greater Perth metropolitan area, effective as of 1 May, 2016.
The announcement follows Skipper Trucks’ cessation as an Iveco franchisee at the end of April, allowing it to pursue other business interests outside of commercial vehicles.
Disruption of sales, service and parts supply to existing Iveco customers and prospective buyers is expected to be minimal, if any.
In commenting on the new appointment, Iveco Australia Network Development Manager, Matteo Gambaro, said the company was excited at adding a professional and high profile group such as AV Truck Services to the Iveco Dealer Network.
“AV Truck Services is extremely well regarded in Western Australia, and Iveco Australia is very excited that this outlet will become our new dealership in Perth,” Mt Gambaro said.
“The group operates a large and well-equipped facility and has strong existing commercial vehicle expertise that will enable a much easier transition to provide high quality sales, service and parts support for the Iveco range from the outset.
“The West Australian market is important for Iveco Australia, and we are confident that Iveco truck and van customers and prospects will receive excellent support from AV Truck Services.”
Mr Gambaro also thanked Skipper Trucks for its long association and loyalty to the Iveco brand in Australia and wished the dealership every success in the future.
AV Truck Services is located at 485 Great Eastern Highway in Redcliffe. Nks nk
