Hino announces new dealer in Hobart

Hino Australia has continued the expansion of its network in Tasmania with a new, purpose-built dealership in Hobart for FRM Hino.

“With consistent business growth, Hobart remains a key market for Hino within Tasmania, and we are confident the new premises will allow FRM to continue to best serve our Hobart customers,” said Brian Wright, General Manager – Sales and Supply Chain for Hino Australia.

“Alongside tourism, the major sectors of mining, agriculture and other primary industries continue to present opportunities for Hino product within the light, medium and heavy duty truck segments of the market,” said Wright.

Over the last five years, FRM Hino has relocated all three FRM branches in Hobart, Launceston and Devonport to new and improved premises.

“When FRM began in 1982, our focus was primarily on the forklift industry, and as we have transformed to truck sales and service business, it has been necessary to improve our premises accordingly,” said David Mills, Managing Director of FRM Hino.

“Our new dealership is Hobart’s only truck showroom, and features an impressive 2,750m2 floor space and 20 service bays, which allows us to better serve our customers’ needs.”

“The new premises under the management of new Sales Manager Troy Wood have seen us increase our sales by 30% year-on-year since we opened the new facility in November 2020,” he said

Hino Australia has over 65 dealerships and services centres throughout the country.
