Webster’s Trucks delivers great customer experience to the Tassie transport industry
Webster Trucks is a division of Motors Tas Pty Ltd (Motors) with extensive interests in the heavy and light automotive industry. Motors employs approximately 420+ employees in Tasmania with 120 staff being directly employed in the Webster Trucks division.
Webster Trucks was formed in October 2007 when Motors acquired the heavy truck business from Webster Limited. The amalgamation resulted in a consolidation of franchises with Isuzu, Mack, UD and Volvo Trucks now being represented.
More recently Motors was acquired by ASX listed company A P Eagers Ltd in April 2016. Eagers is one of the largest automotive groups in Australia with over 4,300 employees and 140 dealerships.
Although the amalgamated business of Motors and Webster Trucks is relatively new, Webster Trucks heritage dates back to the early 1900s when it imported heavy machinery (including ‘Lorries’ and agricultural equipment) in crates ready for assembly. The business continued to serve the heavy transport industry and commenced selling and servicing Mack trucks in 1958, this makes Webster Trucks the oldest continuous Mack dealer in Australia. The integration of Motors and Webster Trucks has seen this long heritage continue as Motors sold and serviced Dodge Trucks in the early 1900s, becoming the Bedford dealer in the 1950s that then evolved into Isuzu trucks – a franchise we continue to support. Webster Trucks has been the dealer for UD Trucks since 2001 and was appointed the Volvo Trucks dealer in 2008. Webster Trucks is proud to be the sole authorised Tasmanian dealer for Isuzu, Mack, UD and Volvo Trucks.
Webster Trucks has the most extensive retail network of service/parts outlets in Tasmania with facilities located in Hobart, Launceston, Devonport and Burnie. The Hobart and Launceston facilities are parts, service and sales outlets for all four brands with Devonport and Burnie are aftersales support only.
Bruce Davey, the Dealer Principal says “our emphasis is going the extra mile, all to deliver the best possible customer experience for the Tasmanian Transport Industry”.
