Wurth Australia have joined Heavy Vehicle Industry Australia (HVIA) as a Principal Partner, aligning their reputation for exceptional service and quality with Australia’s peak industry association representing manufacturers and suppliers of trucks, trailers, components, equipment and technology.
The announcement of the new partnership was made at last week’s HVIA Annual General Meeting, hosted by Wurth Australia at their new, state of the art headquarters in Dandenong South, Melbourne.
HVIA Chief Executive Todd Hacking welcomed the partnership with the renowned international assembly and fastening materials supplier.
“Wurth are an incredibly impressive company with a great history in supporting Australian heavy vehicle and automotive manufacturing,” Mr Hacking said.
“We are delighted to have Wurth join HVIA as a Principal Partner alongside NTI and Truck Assist and welcome their active participation and contribution”.
“The support of our partners is vital in driving many of our activities and strengthening our representation of Australia’s essential, and heavily relied upon, heavy vehicle industry and its customers.
“Wurth are a leader with an amazing heritage, culture and an organisation whose values align with HVIA. Their passion for success is evident through the growth they are experiencing year on year.”
Wurth Australia CEO and Senior Vice President of the Wurth Group, Mr Serge Oppedisano said the new partnership comes at the same time as the company celebrates its 40th anniversary of operations within Australia.
“Wurth Australia are an experienced and vibrant organisation that supports a wide range of industries throughout the country,” Mr Oppedisano said.
“Not only are we passionate about the industry, we have a heavy reliance on it – ensuring that over 10,000 lines per day reach our customers in a timely manner.
“Therefore we not only appreciate, but experience the challenges operators and fleets face.
“This partnership is a perfect reflection of our commitment to excellence and ensuring a positive standard and image is maintained.
“We are delighted to have this opportunity to support HVIA and we go into this agreement with a long term view and commitment to support Australia’s vital heavy vehicle industry through our 450 strong Sales Representatives and state of the art, unique ORSY systems that deliver productivity gains for our customers and the wider industry.”
Next May the industry will come together again for the 2023 Brisbane Truck Show and according to Serge, Wurth Australia will have a brand new and innovative display that showcases their passion for inspiring customers.
“Wurth’s success is all about nurturing strong relationships, so we know how important next year’s reunion is for our customers and the broader industry,” Mr Oppedisano added.
“We are excited to put our global name and support behind this iconic event.”
