Keith Andrews Holdings and CablePrice enter discussions on Daimler Truck South Island network future

17 June 2024

-- Joint media release from Keith Andrews Holdings and CablePrice --

Following the appointment of Keith Andrews Holdings as general distributor across the Daimler Truck brands in New Zealand from early 2025, discussions have now moved to the future direction of the dealer network.

Currently, Keith Andrews represents Mercedes-Benz Trucks, Freightliner and FUSO in the North Island, and CablePrice represents the three brands in the South Island.

To deliver all NZ customers the full benefit of the general distributor appointment, Keith Andrews Holdings is now working with CablePrice on the sale and acquisition of selected South Island Daimler Truck sales and service sites.

Discussions are currently focused on CablePrice’s Christchurch, Timaru and Dunedin truck dealerships, with remaining dealerships maintaining their Daimler Truck service and parts (2S) status as part of CablePrice.

Keith Andrews Holdings Executive Director, Kurtis Andrews, said that there is tremendous respect for the achievements in the South Island.

“The CablePrice team has achieved great success with FUSO in particular and been an integral part of market-leading truck and bus sales efforts in the past three years,” said Andrews.

“We are thrilled by the prospect that they will continue to provide fantastic customer support in the mainland, either as part of CablePrice or Keith Andrews.”

CablePrice (NZ) Ltd Managing Director, Aidan Mahony, said “I am extremely proud of what our team has achieved since becoming the South Island dealer for Mercedes-Benz, Freightliner and FUSO trucks, and I believe all customers will benefit from having a New Zealand based and focused General Distributor”. 

Andrews and Mahony said they are united in their goal of keeping their valued teams and customers updated as the transition progresses, while remaining committed to the job of keeping Daimler Truck customers moving.

“Keith Andrews Holdings and CablePrice aim to maintain all existing operations and personnel to ensure a smooth transition and a high level of customer support,” they said.
