New Palmerston North Branch Opening
Published: August 22nd, 2016
On the 4th of August, 115 staff and guests from all over the lower North Island travelled to AB Equipment and NZ Trucks Palmerston North on a “brisk” winters evening to celebrate the official branch opening.
Fortunately the combined effort of all the local team ensured the night was a great event, the spit roast a few refreshments and good company kept every one warm and in high spirits. A selection of new product was on display for guests to look over including a race car simulator for the “wannabe” racers to prove their driving ability.
This is the first purpose built facility combing both AB Equipment and NZ Trucks and provides the opportunity for our customers to have both the heavy equipment and trucks serviced in the same place.
AB Equipment workshop has three large bays capable allowing the largest of Tigercat or Sumitomo in for service. The design of the workshop allows a greater flexibility of equipment to be maintained.
Included in the combined facility are three separate drive-through bays for NZ Trucks along with a truck hoist for servicing. This was designed for fast servicing turnaround for trucks, trailers, tail lifts and HIAB products. This along with a fully sealed yard, training room, comprehensive parts department and large open plan administration area provides a great working environment for staff and customers.
