Western Truck Group opens new site on Sunshine Coast

Western Truck Group (WTG) has opened a brand-new facility on the Sunshine Coast.

As a Volvo Group Australia dealer partner, the new dealership will service Volvo, UD and Mack truck customers at upgraded facilities and services in the fast-growing Chevallum commercial estate.

The new, large and modern dealership is Western Truck Group’s tenth site, with operations now stretching through regional Queensland, New South Wales and the Northern Territory, from Dubbo to Darwin.

As of 8 November, 2022, the old WTG Sunshine Coast site at Warana, will be closed, with trading commencing at the new site.

Western Truck Group has made this investment in their dealer network with the goal to ultimately provide better services for customers.

In addition to the new 14-bay state-of-the-art workshop, this 9000m2 site has a full drive-through washbay and will operate from Monday to Friday, 8:00am to 5pm and Saturday mornings by appointment.

Truck sales will also be managed out of the new dealership, in addition to parts and service.

“We have outgrown our current, ageing facilities, with access now difficult as a result of change of industry in our current location,” said Russell Edwards, WTG General Manager Business Services.

“With the appointment of truck sales, we required a larger, more accessible retail offer,” he said.

“As part of our commitment to providing high-levels of service for our customers, we are investing heavily in our dealer network.”

Edwards confirmed the new dealership would be recruiting for a number of roles including technicians, parts interpreters, sales cadets, auto electricians, apprentices and yard hands.

Volvo Group Australia is thoroughly supportive of WTG’s move the company said in a statement.

“The purpose-built facility aims to provide better services for Volvo, UD and Mack truck customers, as well as more opportunities and more local jobs for Queenslanders,” said Richard Singer, Vice President of Services and Retail at Volvo Group Australia.

“We extend our heartfelt thanks to the WTG team, who have invested heavily in their network over the past several years and are committed to providing excellent customer service,” he said.

WTG was established in 2018 after the purchase of what was formerly Queensland Truck Centre.

Since then, WTG has established itself as a vital network partner looking after the transport needs of customers right across Australia.
