Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner customers will benefit from the appointment of two dealerships operated by Keith Andrews Trucks in Wellington and Palmerston North in the next few months.

Exact timing is to be confirmed, but the facilities will offer sales, service and parts departments. 

Daimler Truck and Bus Australia Pacific president and CEO Daniel Whitehead said Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner customers in the area would be well looked after following the appointment.

“We are excited to appoint the Keith Andrews Trucks team in order to provide the highest level of service to our customers in the lower North Island. This is a critical region of New Zealand and we are thrilled our customers there will receive the kind of attention and support that the Keith Andrews Trucks team is known to provide to the rest of the North Island,” he said.

Keith Andrews Trucks already represents the Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner brands in the upper North Island, with dealerships in Whangarei, Auckland and Hamilton.

“We are delighted that Daimler Truck and Bus Australia has recognised our tenure, capability and desire to represent its brands beyond the upper North Island and we‘re grateful for the opportunity to do so,” said Keith Andrews Trucks managing director Aaron Smith.

“I‘d like to also acknowledge the hard work of the entire Keith Andrews team in achieving this goal.

“We have strong Daimler relationships throughout the North Island and look forward to growing and continuing to provide the high standard of expertise and service customers expect of Daimler brands,” said Smith.
