Newly-appointed South Island FUSO, Freightliner and Mercedes-Benz dealer CablePrice has opened a new operation in Timaru.
The expansion means that the former Scania distributor now has four new truck sales, parts and service branches – in Christchurch, Greymouth, Invercargill and Timaru – representing the Daimler Trucks brands.
The company, which was confirmed in February as the South Island dealer for the three makes, says it's committed to supporting customers "with the best possible products and service, through its own ever-increasing nationwide network."
CablePrice New Zealand managing director Keisuke (Ken) Okuzumi says: "We see Timaru as an important hub and gateway to the South Island, with its large agricultural diversity, significant manufacturing operations and increasing commercial traffic. 
"It has been our intention for some time now to expand our offering and support to the regions. This latest branch strengthens our commitment to our South Island customers, while providing assurance for locally-based customers.
"Our new Timaru site will service the wider South Canterbury region and offer customers full workshop support, along with 24/7 mobile support, should the need arise.
"Over many years CablePrice has built a strong relationship with customers in the area and we are looking to taking this to the next level with this recent expansion".  
Fuso NZ CEO Kurtis Andrews says that Timaru is a key location in the FUSO dealer network, adding: "We're delighted that CablePrice has secured a new site, from which they will provide FUSO genuine parts and service, and now, also new truck sales. 
"FUSO operators in South Canterbury, and those who operate up and down the South Island, can expect a high level of specialist service from this new Timaru dealership."  
Daimler Truck and Bus Australia Pacific aftersales and network operations director, Greg Lovrich, says Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner customers will benefit from the addition of the Timaru site.
"The quality of the staff at this location is of the highest order and we know that our customers will appreciate their support," he says. 
"It is great to have the best products – but to have them backed by the best people is critically important."
