UD Trucks Southern Africa has announced the opening of a new service dealer in Sasolburg. Strategically located, UD Trucks Vaal will serve fleet owners in the industrial heartland of the country with certified UD Trucks service, parts, and roadside assistance.
This brings the total number of independently owned UD Trucks dealers in South Africa to 38.
“As UD Trucks, we believe in offering our customers more than just a vehicle. It is about providing a complete transport solution,” said Filip Van den Heede, Managing Director of UD Trucks Southern Africa. “The UD Trucks dealer network has been developed according to a carefully planned strategy. All dealers adhere to stringent quality requirements, and as a result, we can deliver the same level of quality service to our customers, no matter where they are.”
One of the main reasons for UD Trucks Southern Africa’s continued success is the emphasis the company places on building relationships with fleet owners.
“In the highly competitive transport business, we know that every cent and every minute counts. We live this vision from the inside out,” explained Van den Heede. “That is why we are very pleased and excited with the opening of the UD Trucks Vaal Service dealership. We believe in the team and know that they are truly committed to provide our customers with the kind of support and service that they expect and deserve.”
The service dealer facility is owned by Highpoint Group, a local company with more than twenty years’ experience in mining, manufacturing, engineering, and vacuum technology.
As a UD Trucks customer themselves, they have the unique expertise to anticipate and deliver on fleet owners’ unique business and transport requirements.
“Throughout our dealings with UD Trucks, we have come to know and trust the products and services built on the principles of drivability, fuel efficiency, safety, productivity and uptime – all essentials in any transport business,” said David Gade, Managing Director of UD Trucks Vaal. “But most importantly, we believe in the UD Trucks people.”
He said the company is passionate about customer service and therefore the UD Trucks brand promise of ‘Going the Extra Mile’ resonates with what they are already doing in their daily operations.
“I also believe that the technical expertise in this dealership is exceptional and customers in the Vaal Triangle will benefit from this knowledge and skills,” said Gade.
The UD Trucks Vaal team is led by Dealer Principal, Sonnika Oosthuizen.
“Everything we do is focussed on giving our customers superior levels of service and support. It is all about saving our customers time, by getting their vehicles back on the road faster. Ultimately, our customers’ success is our top priority,” stated Oosthuizen.
