CablePrice to open Timaru branch for Daimler network

Posted on: Tuesday, 16 June 2020

This latest addition to the CablePrice network, follows quickly on the heels of the announcement, earlier this year, that CablePrice had been appointed as the South Island’s authorised sales, parts and service dealer for Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner.

CablePrice is committed to supporting customers with the best possible products and service through its own ever-increasing nationwide network.

CablePrice New Zealand Managing Director Keisuke (Ken) Okuzumi says “It has always been our intention to expand our offering and support to the regions. This latest branch solidifies our commitment to our South Island customers, while providing reassurance for locally based customers. We see Timaru as an important hub and gateway to the South Island, with its large agricultural diversity, significant manufacturing operations and increasing commercial traffic”.

“Our new Timaru site will service the wider south Canterbury region and offer customers full workshop support along with 24 / 7 mobile support, should the need arise. We have also been fortunate enough to secure the talents of some fantastic Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner experienced technicians, ensuring we offer the highest level of service”.
“We have a strong relationship with customers in the area and are looking to taking this to the next level with this recent expansion”.

Daimler Truck and Bus Australia Pacific Aftersales and Network Operations Director, Greg Lovrich, says Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner customers will benefit from CablePrice’s addition of the Timaru site.

“The quality of the staff at this location is of the highest order and we know that our customers will appreciate their support,” he says.

“It is great to have the best products but to have them backed by the best people is critically important,” Mr Lovrich adds.

Mr Okuzumi says the CablePrice had aimed to open its new location earlier.
“While we intended to have the site up and running earlier, due to restrictions relating to Covid-19, it was always paramount that our customer and staff safety came first. However, progress with the building fit-out is now well underway and we will be fully open later this month”.
