Expansion of sales network continues for Hino Australia
A 2020 Christmas Eve decision has paid dividends for Mavin Hino, according to Dealer Principal Dean Mavin.
It’s been almost a year since the 24 December 2020 decision to purchase a new site for the expanding dealership in Taree, and Mr Mavin has no regrets.
“After three years providing parts and service to Hino customers in Taree, it was a natural progression to begin selling trucks to these customers,” said Mr Mavin, whose dealership also has an established branch in Kempsey.
“In the last year, we have seen a continual stream of sales, particularly from industries such as farming, local council and energy, with a specific focus on medium-duty trucks such as the 500 Series Standard Cab.
“The Federal Government’s Instant Asset Write-Off has also been a significant factor.
“The new location allows us to better service our customers’ sales, parts and service requirements with larger service bays while the impressive 600 m2 floor space including 400 m2 sales display area showcases the Hino product range.
“This has resulted in a continual increase in parts and service sales allowing for the recruitment of additional service technicians and apprentices over the past 18 months.
“It’s a testament to the dedicated and professional Mavin Hino team that we have been able to achieve these results and continue to provide excellent service our customers expect - the last two years have been a rollercoaster to say the least with bushfires (2020), floods (2021) and, of course, the pandemic and lockdowns,” continued Mr Mavin.
Brian Wright, General Manager of Sales and Supply Chain for Hino Australia congratulated the team on the results and said the decision to add the Taree branch to Hino Australia’s existing 42 sales centres was a strategic one.
“We are constantly analysing the Australian truck market to understand the needs of our customers - the Mid North Coast of NSW was identified as an area of opportunity, and expanding our existing partnership with Mavin Hino was a logical decision.
“Collectively, Dean Mavin and his team bring decades of experience selling Hino trucks at their Kempsey branch, and we are confident they are well-placed to service the needs of Hino customers along the Mid North Coast,” he concluded.
