The truck dealership action around the southern New South Wales continues with Penske Commercial Vehicles (PCV) appointing O’Reilly Trucks Wagga Wagga to its dealer network to service the region.

O’Reilly Trucks will provide sales support, parts, and service functions for the Western Star Trucks, MAN Truck & Bus, and Dennis Eagle brands, while taking on the representation of the Detroit brand.

Since opening O’Reilly Trucks in 2010, Brad and Tracey O’Reilly have continued to expand their operations.

"Brad and Tracey are highly regarded within the Wagga community and bring a wealth of experience to the Penske dealer network," PCV network development manager Scott Taylor says.

"Brad spent several years working in the former Penske Power Systems, previously MTUDDA, branch in Wagga Wagga, specialising in the Detroit product – first as a senior technician, then as a foreman, and finally as the service manager, before taking on a new challenge and ultimately opening O’Reilly Trucks.

"With two decades of experience, and a family history with Western Star, Brad and Tracey are passionate about our brands.

"This, combined with their proven track record in delivering outstanding customer service and technical excellence will ensure our new and existing Western Star, MAN, Dennis Eagle, and Detroit customers will receive the best of care whether they are buying a new truck, or seeking parts and service support."

PCV sees the move as highlighting O’Reilly’s  investment  in their workforce, dealership, and customers over the past decade.

"Tracey and I are honoured to work with some of the same customers today that I first worked with almost 20 years ago, and we consider it a huge privilege to add the Western Star, MAN, Dennis Eagle, and Detroit brands to build on this foundation," Brad O’Reilly says.

"We are passionate about tough and reliable American brands like Western Star and Detroit. And now with the addition of European brands like MAN and Dennis Eagle that lead the way in innovation and safety, we feel that we have a full complement of brands to offer customers in southern New South Wales."

O’Reilly Trucks will commence its appointment providing sales support, parts, and service functions at 4 Say Street, East Wagga Wagga, on March 2.

Accordingly, Hartwigs will cease its representation of the Western Star Trucks, MAN Truck & Bus, and Dennis Eagle brands in Wagga.

The news comes hot on the heels of Daimler’s regional announcement this month.
