GTM will distribute the full MaxiTRANS range in Shepparton, Victoria, and surrounding areas, MaxiTRANS said.
“We are excited to continue to expand the MTC (Mildura Truck Centre) relationship with MaxiTRANS and add Graham Thomson Motors to the MaxiTRANS dealer network,” said Glenn Leake, MTC dealer principal.
“The extension of trailer sales to the existing parts, service and truck offering allows us to truly be a one-stop shop for our valued customers in the Shepparton region, giving us the added flexibility to offer an even wider range of transport solutions.”
Part of the MTC group, a longtime MaxiTRANS dealer, GTM established itself as a PACCAR dealer in the 1970s, MaxiTRANS said. Since being purchased by MTC, the business has continued to serve the Shepparton region and surrounding areas in Victoria.
GTM now will distribute the full range of MaxiTRANS trailer brands, including Freighter, Maxi-CUBE, Lusty EMS, Hamelex White, Trout River Australia, AZMEB and Peki.
MTC recently celebrated 65 years with MaxiTRANS in a partnership that includes dealerships in Mildura and Swan Hill, Victoria, and Broken Hill, New South Wales. MTC acquired GTM in 2011.
GTM boasts a 5-acre facility with 12 service bays and a number of dedicated in-house trailer technicians offering full truck and trailer service capability, MaxiTRANS said.
“This is yet another example of MaxiTRANS’ commitment to providing greater access to our industry-leading aftermarket service and support network for our customers nationally,” said Andrew McKenzie, group general manager of sales and marketing for MaxiTRANS. “The MTC group have been a strategic partner of MaxiTRANS for over 65 years and the addition of GTM into the MaxiTRANS dealer network is an exciting opportunity for both parties to grow our relationship.
“This most recent announcement is yet a further demonstration of the importance and value in which MaxiTRANS holds its customers. It shows we are ready to invest in providing the products and services required, so our customers know they can rely on us and they can continue doing their job of delivering the needs of a nation.”
