Penske New Zealand has opened a brand-new purposebuilt Christchurch base.
The NZ importer and distributor of Western Star, MAN and Dennis Eagle trucks and MTU and Detroit engines opened the Hornby facility last month.
To coincide with the opening, local commercial vehicle dealer, Heavy Trucks, joined the Penske NZ "family" and relocated its operations to the site.

Penske NZ says: "Customers will continue to receive the great experience to which they were accustomed with Heavy Trucks, while also benefitting from the broader Penske NZ network," which includes Auckland and Tauranga locations.
Penske NZ director Jim Livermore says that with the new facility, "we will be able to build on the great reputation that Heavy Trucks has earned in the South Island for exceptional customer service."
Situated on a 11,500m square metre site in Headquarters Place, Hornby, the purposebuilt facility comprises 1860 sq. m. of workshop space, a 500 sq. m. parts warehouse, and 900 sq. m. of office space and amenities.
"The state-of-the-art workshop houses 18 truck bays, a machine shop, a drive-through wash bay, and two full-length service pits fitted out with the latest servicing equipment – providing exceptional amenities for our staff, our customers and their assets," says Livermore.
Penske NZ has 13 commercial vehicle dealers and an additional 17 accredited Detroit dealers.
