In an exciting move to diversify and expand the IVECO business in New Zealand. IVECO announced the launch of an all-makes parts brand in Auckland today.
IVECO New Zealand announced the launch of an all-makes parts business going live across their dealer network today. IVECO has partnered with Diesel Technic, one of the largest suppliers of aftermarket commercial vehicle parts worldwide.
Diesel Technic supplies parts currently to over 150 countries and has been in operation since 1972. Their extensive product range of over 30,000 parts lines, their commitment to competitive pricing and a 24 month parts guarantee made Diesel Technic an easy choice of supplier for IVECO NZ. They specialize in European truck, trailer and bus parts with everything available from electrical components all the way through to major engine and suspension components.
When asked why IVECO was launching Diesel Technic in New Zealand, Parts Business Development Manager Elliot Barnard states “we have noted a gap in our local product range in New Zealand and after extensive market research we have come to the conclusion that as far as parts quality, range and pricing Diesel Technic was who we wanted to partner with.”
The Diesel Technic parts are stored at the Auckland Headquarters and will be distributed via the 20 Iveco Parts Dealers nationwide. Kristi Walker, Dealer Development Manager, elaborated “we have been focusing on growing and strengthening the dealer network here in New Zealand for the last two years. We are proud to have one of the largest networks in the country and are pleased to be able to provide another revenue stream to our partners. Subsequently this also is a win for kiwi operators who will be able to see their vehicles serviced, regardless of brand, with quality parts in a cost effective and timely manner.”
The initial stock order of nearly $100,000 has landed at IVECO NZ in Wiri with monthly stock orders set going forward. Meanwhile, any parts not initially stock are being airfreighted in as needed.
Ian Walker, General Manager concludes “This is only the beginning of a very exciting time for IVECO and Diesel Technic. As we expand our product range and move into our newly built facility in Q3 we are making leaps forward in the commercial vehicle parts market which ultimately reflects in better product, better quality, better pricing and a better customer experience for all.”
