The 6th of April 2016 came around very quickly in preparing for our 50 Years of Kenworth Truck Show! It was a balancing act between not disrupting customers and staff over the Friday and Saturday when we set up the stage, food stalls, lawn garden area and trucks. Of course, our industry never stops and we juggled trucks in and out of the workshop, the yard, and around the show.
Last night we had the pleasure of welcoming our valued new apprentices and celebrating the hard work of our graduates, with their partners and families at our annual Apprentice Welcome & Graduation Evening. It is also recognition of the mentors within our business who help to guide and teach our apprentices through to the completion of their trade and beyond.
PacLease Adelaide has had an exciting year so far in 2018, with a lot of enquiry and interest generated in the market.
In 2018, CMV Truck Sales celebrates 50 years as a Kenworth dealer. In this edition, we will be looking at the important historical milestones since we began in 1968.
Last night we had the pleasure of hosting some of our most valued customers and our partners from PACCAR, Cummins, Eaton and Knorr-Bremse to the dealership for what was a fantastic evening and opportunity to gain a greater understanding of how Kenworth provides a superior driving experience, more now than ever before
From a modest beginning as a family-owned company in Adelaide’s north-eastern suburbs, Ross Contractors has grown to become a leader in the industry for premium sand and clay products, hauled daily with their fleet of Kenworth trucks supplied by the team here at CMV Truck Sales & Service.
Coinciding with the handover last week of the 60,000th locally-manufactured Kenworth, DAF Trucks Australia (DTA) announced that some DAF trucks for the Australian market will be assembled at the PACCAR Australia production facility in Bayswater, commencing in the second half of 2018.
DAF is a global organisation with more than 85 years’ experience in vehicle engineering and manufacturing.
DAF currently manufactures industry-leading trucks in Eindhoven (The Netherlands), Westerlo (Belgium), Leyland (United Kingdom) and Ponta Grossa (Brazil). DAF’s engine factory, component plant, press shop and final assembly line for CF and XF models are located in Eindhoven, and the axles and cabins are produced in Westerlo. Leyland Trucks (also a PACCAR company) produces the LF series of light-duty trucks, as well as the heavy-duty CF and XF series vehicles.
The availability of PACCAR’s MX-13 engine under the bonnet of Australian made Kenworth trucks was described as a game changer when it was first announced in 2014.
Since 2015 Kenworth DAF Adelaide has been supporting the OZ Outback Odyssey to help raise vital funds for the Royal Flying Doctors Service. For the 3rd year running General Manager Jonathan Crawford, Josh Beattie, Lachie McQuade & Ben Holmes will set off from Adelaide in car 1934 across the outback to the far north of Queensland.
