Hino has announced an update for its dealer network with a new facility on the Sunshine Coast and renewal of facilities in Tamworth and Toowoomba.
Hino cited the improvements as an example of its continued effort to ‘strengthen its presence in the New South Wales and Queensland markets’.
“A successful Hino dealer for over a decade, Wideland Hino has significantly increased its investment in its customers and is now one of Hino Australia’s most prominent dealer groups with these new developments,” said Brian Wright, Hino’s general manager for sales and supply chain .
“This expansion also aligns with Hino Australia’s ongoing commitment to continue to strategically increase our dealership network and provide greater accessibility to our customers,” said Wright.
Chris Swain, group general manager for the Wideland Group said Hino is an integral part of the Wideland Group, which now manages Hino dealerships in Tamworth, Sunshine Coast, Muswellbrook, Maryborough, and Toowoomba.
“The investment we have made over the last two years has been focused on providing even better facilities and service to our Hino customers.”
One of Hino Australia’s newest dealerships, the purpose-built Sunshine Coast facility features 25% more workshop and parts storage space, while the display and vehicle storage area is 50% larger, providing better access for customers and more heavy-duty vehicle parking.
“From a service perspective, we can now offer express servicing and will soon provide in-house weighing and brake test services.
Meanwhile in Tamworth, a move to a larger, more prominent premise in August has paid dividends with sales increasing by 10 per cent year-on-year. The new dealership also has 25 per cent more service capacity and ample parts storage.
In May 2021, Wideland Hino was also appointed as the authorised Hino dealer in Toowoomba.
“For Wideland Hino, this was a logical move as our head office is located in Toowoomba, and the Hino dealership there was the final piece of the puzzle.
“Our extensive Hino dealership network allows us to best support customers in the region, and the order intake has surpassed our expectations,” Swain concluded.
Hino Australia has over 65 dealerships and services centres throughout the country, and more information can be found at www.hino.com.au
