Hino Australia has expanded its network in Tasmania with a new, purpose-built dealership in Hobart for FRM Hino.
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 per cent year-on-year since we opened the new facility in November 2020,” added Mills.
Brian Wright, General Manager – Sales and Supply Chain for Hino Australia, said that with consistent business growth, Hobart remains a key market for Hino within Tasmania. The company is confident the new premises will allow FRM to continue to best serve its Hobart customers.
“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,” added Wright.
Hino Australia has more than 65 dealerships and services centres throughout the country.
