Central Diesel Services has been appointed as the authorised Mercedes, Freightliner and Fuso truck Service and Parts dealer for the Rotorua region.

The announcement comes off the back of the opening of a new branch in the city in May 2021.

The dealerships are extensions of existing dealerships CDSL holds for the Tauranga region. 

The company has been servicing the heavy transport industry in the Bay of Plenty for more than 25 years. In addition to these truck franchises, CDSL are also the authorised dealer for Cummins and Detroit engines, and BPW and Jost transport parts for the Bay of Plenty.

“We have established long standing relationships with many of the heavy transport operators in Rotorua, that we have been servicing from our head office and main branch in Tauranga for many years,” said CDSL managing director Bert Hayden.

“It will be great to now be able to strengthen this even more with local representation and, in conjunction with the Mercedes, Freightliner and Fuso Truck sales teams, look to increase penetration of these major brands in the Rotorua region.”

The new Rotorua branch is located on the corner of Tallyho and Riri streets and was built specifically to service the needs of the heavy transport industry. The branch offers four drive through bays, including a full-length pit, truck wash area, parts warehouse and offices.

A team of specialist employees have been appointed to cover the key roles, with more staff to be added over the coming months.
