In the Adelaide suburb of Wingfield, a major new dealership is now under construction on a 4.3 hectare site which will eventually contain a 6,600 square metre covered facility. South Central Trucks’ new project will be the home for Volvo, Mack and UD Trucks in South Australia and is expected to employ over 130 staff.
South Central Trucks is part of the CMV Group. The new dealership amalgamates the existing South Central Trucks Mack and UD, and South Central Trucks Volvo dealerships, both located at Gepps Cross.
Estimated for completion in September 2015, the new facility will feature 39 work bays in the main workshop, capacity for 70 prime movers to be parked and stored, four fully suspended B-double drive through service pits, overhead cranes in the main workshop, a VIS brake roller tester and vehicle shaker plates. There will also be a separate truck fit out workshop for new and used prime movers.
“The facilities will be some of the best in the world, allowing us to showcase our fantastic trucks and elevate our customer care to the highest level, whilst at the same time providing our staff with the best working environment possible” said Paul Crawford, CMV Joint Managing Director. “The decision to build this dealership represents a significant investment and reflects the confidence the CMV Group has not only in the future of South Central Trucks, but also Volvo Group Australia and the South Australian transport industry”.
