RAM Truck Australia has recorded another record-breaking month of production and retail sales.
Following the recent expansion of the Melbourne manufacturing facility, 900 full-size pick-up trucks were produced. RAM Trucks Australia delivered 710 trucks to customers in the same month.
“The records keep on falling at RAM Trucks Australia,” said National Manager of RAM Trucks Australia, Jeff Barber.”
“The expansion of our production facility, the partnership we have with our colleagues at RAM Trucks International and our dedicated dealer network should all be proud of the continuing hard work when it comes to delivering the very best full-size pick-up trucks in Australia. With what’s coming down the line over the next few months and years, the future is certainly very bright for RAM Trucks in Australia.”
Bob Graczyk, Head of RAM International, who visited Melbourne recently to see the expanded production facility, said, “When we first looked into the business opportunity seven years ago and asked how big the market could be, no-one really knew what to expect, maybe 3,000, 4,000, perhaps 5,000 units.
“It has completely exceeded our expectations and 10,000 vehicles is now realistic. Who knows, we could go up to 15 or 20,000 units. The acceptance of full-size pick-up trucks by Australians is just phenomenal.”
All RAM Trucks Australia vehicles are international-spec vehicles, uniquely coded for the Australian market and the local build process.
The company said it is now the biggest vehicle manufacturer in Australia, employing 641 people. With 361 new parts used, there are also significant local supply chain benefits of the fast-growing vehicle segment.
