Carpark competition honours Ed Cameron

PACCAR Managing Director, Andrew Hadjikakou, has announced 'The Ed Cameron Carpark' as the winning name of the commercial vehicle manufacturer's competition after receiving 123 responses from employees.

"I am pleased to announce the winning name, The Ed Cameron Carpark," said Hadjikakou.

"Congratulations to Michael Maruca from PACCAR Financial for the suggestion, a fantastic way to pay tribute to the man who played an instrumental role introducing Kenworth to Australia in the 1960s.

"Back then, Ed Cameron recognised a need for more suitable product for the Australian market and after hearing of custom-built Kenworths to suit specialised trucking needs in the US, he was convinced these would fit the bill.

"In 1962, after numerous phone calls and visits to the US, along with changes to Australia’s import rules, Ed’s hard work paid off and Kenworth officially arrived in Australia. A great story to celebrate our rich history and PACCAR pedigree," he said.

Chris Bombinski came second with her suggestion ‘Wurundjeri Gardens’ and Ron Dixon came third with ‘Wurundjeri’.

The new carpark signage will be erected in the weeks to follow.
