After the announcement about the decision by Western Diesel to go into receivership in early April, the situation surrounding the two Paccar brands in the Northern Territory has been in question. The situation has been resolved, this week, with an announcement by Paccar of a deal to bring in CJD Equipment as the company’s representatives in the state.
CJD have considerable experience with both Kenworth and DAF as they already own dealer groups selling the two brands in Western Australia and Tasmania. The company will take over the Paccar related business formerly run by Western Diesel, after coming to an arrangement with the receiver who is handling the former dealer’s affairs.
Handing the business over to CJD should mean Kenworth and DAF customers will see a continuing support for the Paccar product. CJD has been dealing with trucks in remote areas like the Pilbara and around mining areas like Kalgoorlie for some time , so will be able to bring its considerable experience to bear in remote situations.
