1 MinutesBy NZ Trucking magazineAugust 5, 2020

Keith Andrews Trucks is now an approved parts and service dealer for Detroit in Hamilton, Auckland and Whangarei. 

The appointment joins a list of recent additions to the Keith Andrews stable, including full sales and service of Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner trucks from all sites. CEO Aaron Smith says the business is now well positioned for growth.

“There have been a lot of changes to the business over the past 12 months – by far the biggest being the loss of its founder Keith Andrews. I think Keith would be pretty happy with the progress that‘s been made. There is still a lot of work to do to achieve his aspirations – and that‘s what drives us each and every day,” says Smith.

“Detroit is a cornerstone of the Daimler product and KAT‘s inclusion in the manufacturer‘s approved dealer network adds further weight to its position as a Daimler specialist. Now, across the top of the North Island, Keith Andrews Trucks is the one-stop shop if an operator is looking for a Daimler solution.”
