South Australian dealer Wakefield Trucks has been crowned the Penske Commercial Vehicles (PCV) Dealer of the Year for 2018.

A long-serving dealer of the Western Star Trucks, MAN Truck & Bus, and Dennis Eagle brands, having recently celebrated its 40th anniversary, Wakefield Trucks has provided outstanding support to customers throughout the state, PCV says.

"Wakefield Trucks has provided Western Star, MAN, and Dennis Eagle customers with fantastic service and support over the last 30-odd years, and it’s a pleasure to be able to recognise that," PCV managing director Kevin Dennis says.

"In awarding this accolade, we assessed our dealer network, including independent dealers and our Penske-owned dealers, against an extensive criteria.

"Wakefield Trucks achieved platinum status in the crucial areas of sales, service and parts availability, and key operational metrics for 2018."
