AMA Group acquires Western Truck Repairs

AMA Group broadens its national footprint.

Victorian-based Western Truck Repairs has been purchased by AMA Group.

The move by AMA, which presently boasts a heavy vehicle national footprint, is expected to expand its coverage in heavy vehicle repairs and services across Australia.

Western Truck Repairs will join Wales (NSW), Recar (VIC & QLD), Parins (WA) and All Transport (SA) to support AMA’s growing National Heavy Vehicle
Repair Network.

CEO of AMA’s Heavy Vehicle Division, Darren Wales, said he was delighted Western will be joining the Group and bringing its superior craftsmanship from an experienced team of repair professionals.

“For over 30 years Western has been Victoria’s leading truck repair group and from myself and our team we are excited for them to be a part of a quality company like AMA,” said Wales.

“Western will complement our coverage not only in Victoria, but Australia wide. It’s a ‘one-stop-shop’ for truck, bus & coach repairs,” he said.

Western’s Managing Director Phil Purdy said the decision to join the AMA Group was not taken lightly.

“What they bring to the Heavy Vehicle Repair industry is second to none in terms of quality and service,” he said.

“This ensures our client base of over 30 years remain the sole focus, for now and many years to come. Myself and our other two Directors, Joe Portelli and Erio Mirra, look forward to working with Darren and the whole AMA organisation,” said Purdy.

Wales said AMA has a strong track record of speed and efficiency in delivering operational integration and change, whether it be acquisitions, additional sites or new initiatives.

“We are looking forward to welcoming the Western team and they will be a great asset to our business,” he said.
