Ateco takes on Foton distribution

Neville Crichton, Ateco governing director

Ateco Automotive has taken over the importation and distribution of Foton light and medium trucks in Australian and New Zealand after Western Star relinquished its association with the Chinese brand.

According to a press release from Ateco, a revamped model line-up will be available in early 2013 with pricing, specification and further details to be announced closer to that time.
Ateco’s governing director, Neville Crichton, said he was very pleased to be re-entering the commercial vehicle market.

“We have enjoyed great success in this country over the past few years with Chinese made utilities and SUVs, and I think the time is now right for us to press ahead and enter other market segments with well-equipped and very competitively priced Chinese products,” Crichton said.
