Southpac Trucks acquire 96 Vaughan Road Rotorua
Posted: 22-Jul-2021 |


With RFH having outgrown their current site and relocating to a bigger and redeveloped property across the road, Southpac Trucks has announced that they have concluded an agreement to purchase a large property from Rotorua Forest Haulage Ltd on 96 Vaughan Road, Rotorua, and take possession early 2022.

They say that soon after they take possession, the existing buildings will be modified to enable their Rotorua branch to relocate from Te Ngae Road to Vaughan Road. 

“As the site is very large, further development and construction for a new dealership will commence in late 2022 or early 2023.

Our architects who designed the Hobill Avenue workshop and our Hamilton dealership are in the process of finalising plans to build a new parts and service dealership at Vaughan Road.

Once redeveloped, the Vaughan Road site will be an important asset to improve our parts and service support to our valued customers in the Central North Island and the Bay of Plenty regions.”

The expanded engineering and workshop space will provide the resources to continue to expand the Company’s successful growth in Kenworth and DAF truck sales. 

“As with all our new developments, a dedicated training bay and training room will be set aside to bring technical training to the dealership.”

The Company’s growth in TRP parts, an important function of our objective to provide affordable parts solutions to their customers, will have more warehouse and showroom space to accommodate truck, trailer and engine spares.

“I look forward to sharing more information about this exciting development as they become available says Maarten Durent”  Chief Executive Officer
