Scania's New And Expanded Footprint On Brand
Media Release Thursday 19 November, 2020
scania's new and expanded footprint on brand
Seven of Scania New Zealand’s eight new nation-wide service centres are shop-window ready and open for business. Scania Rotorua starts with limited capacity in December.
Mattias Lundholm, Managing Director of Scania New Zealand, says the new-look dealer network service centres – made up of seven Trucks & Trailers service centres acquired in August plus a newly established Rotorua workshop – are now fitted-out with Scania branding and set for their first official days of servicing as part of the Scania stable.
Lundholm says incorporating the Trucks and Trailers employees into the Scania team has been one of the most satisfying parts of the journey.
“It was very important for Scania to align with a business like Trucks & Trailers that shared its values towards its people, customers and community, so it’s been a very efficient and rewarding process bringing them all up-to-speed on our own Scania values.
“They wear the Scania brand well,” says Lundholm.
Lundholm says acquiring the centres significantly expanded Scania’s footprint across the country and just as importantly underlined our commitment to our customers and provincial New Zealand.
The expansion lifts Scania’s stable of nation-wide dealerships and will almost treble its number of employees to a team of more than 165.
The new Scania branded service centre locations are:
· Scania Auckland (Wiri)
· Scania Drury
· Scania Rotorua
· Scania Palmerston North
· Scania Wellington
· Scania Christchurch
· Scania Greymouth
· Scania Timaru
· Scania Invercargill
There are some gaps across New Zealand, but Scania NZ is working on a solution with more to come soon!
