Hino has added a new dealer to it network announcing the appointment of Southside Truck Centre at Lismore, in the Northern Rivers  of NSW as a new sales branch after six years as a parts and service dealer.

“Following its success over the last six years as a parts and service Hino franchise, Southside Truck Centre was a logical addition to the 41 Hino sales dealerships across the country,” said Hino vice president of brand and franchise development, Bill Gillespie,.

“We are continually monitoring the Australian truck market to understand the needs of our customers.

“Southside Truck Centre has been part of the Australian trucking landscape for over 50 years, so they were the perfect choice to support and service our customers in the Northern Rivers region,” Bill Gillespie said.

Buoyed by strong and early interest in the Hino brand, dealer principal Steve Robinson said that
like many businesses, the pandemic forced them to re-evaluate the business.

“It was a logical conclusion to expand our range of products to include Hino, providing our customers with more medium and light-duty options, and a complete range of trucks for all applications.

“With the launch last year of the new 300 Series including an expansion of the Built to Go products, it is a particularly exciting time to be involved with Hino Australia,” Steve Robinson said.

Steve credits the family-owned and operated company’s longevity to its ‘customer first’’ ethos.

Hino Australia has over 65 dealerships and services centres throughout the country, and more information can be found at www.hino.com.au
