Truckzone beefs up network
Aftermarket and original equipment parts retailer extends national network with opening of new outlet in Rockhampton
Truck and trailer parts specialist Truckzone, previously known as Gleeman and Coburg, has recently opened a new store in Rockhampton, Queensland.
The centrally-located new branch features a showroom and warehouse fully stocked with truck and trailer parts and accessories of the well-known brands in Australia.
This initiative is part of a nation-wide effort by the aftermarket and original equipment parts retailer and distributor to extend its network of 11 company-owned stores.
According to the SMP Group CEO Mick Henderson, the new addition is going to extend and facilitate Truckzone’s national offering.
"We are excited about our new branch opening," he says.
"It is important for us to grow the Truckzone family and expand our national footprint. Rockhampton was one of the priorities for us as our customer base is growing in this area, so we made sure to find a central, convenient location for our customers."
Rockhampton is a major regional centre and the beef capital of Australia. Having experienced extensive development over the past 15 years, it is set to expand even further with the current construction of a bypass that will ease the traffic between urban areas, from the West Rockhampton connection through to the Parkhurst connection, which is a future growth area.
"The opening of the new branch was required to meet the growing local customer demand and I’m very pleased that some of the most experienced part interpreters in North Queensland have joined our Rockhampton branch to support our customers," Henderson says.
"It’s just another way we can deliver on the values at the heart of Truckzone: providing customers with the products they need and trust, when and where they need them, at a competitive price, with industry leading advice and support.
"We have a catalogue of 30,000 competitively priced lines and our stock levels keep growing in all our stores, including Rockhampton.
"At the SMP Group, we have recently consolidated three of our six businesses – Gleeman, Coburg and Partspeek – all in truck parts and accessories, to create one strong entity, helping us to deliver the best customer experience.
"Our goal is to pass on the benefits of our new developments to our customers. This is only the start of our national commitment with more exciting announcements to come.
"We hope to see lots of our customers and local community members soon in the Rockhampton store and look forward to showing off our new branch."
Truckzone Rockhampton branch is located 113 Gladstone Road, Allenstown.
