AMA Group has announced it has recently acquired its ninth major heavy motor repair facility, Newcastle’s National Truck Repairs and National Central.
Darren Wales, AMA’s CEO Heavy Motor Division, said he is delighted with the newly acquired business, stating it is a perfect strategic fit for the ever-expanding Heavy Motor Division.
“National Truck Repairs is such a well-run and respected industry leader in the heavy vehicle repair sector, we are delighted to have them onboard to complement our burgeoning team,” he said. “Having a facility of this calibre in the Newcastle region complements our national repair network, which is the only heavy vehicle repair organisation to have such a national presence.”
Rodney Landers of National Truck Repairs said the business “looked long and hard” before joining the AMA Heavy Motor team.
“Having the backing of such an organisation like AMA, with the systems and process that they have put in place, is second to none,” he said. “Their commitment to the industry for the long term gave us piece of mind to provide our customer base an exceptional level of service and satisfaction for many years to come.”
Wales said the recent change of AMA Group’s CEO had not affected the business.
“[Our executive team and I] are laser focused on providing our clients, both transport operators and insurers alike, with exceptional service and competitive pricing structures,” he said. “We are 100 per cent committed to this task. Companies will always undergo change. Our staff, management and technicians are the backbone of our company. This is what sets us apart from our competition.”
AMA Heavy Motor Division says it now employs 250 staff across its sites Australia wide, including Parins Truck Repairs, All Transport Smash, Western Truck Repairs, Recar Truck Repairs, Wales Truck Repairs, Wales Bus Repairs, and National Truck Repairs.
