Isuzu, Operators, Trucks

Right People, Product and Services in Place

Right People Product and Services in Place

From their origins in 1980 in Rydalmere (NSW) with one outlet, through to the massive success they enjoy today as one of the world’s leading suppliers of premium fluid transfer solutions, Pirtek is a prime example of having the right people, product and services in place, at the right time.

This mantra extends to having their technicians arrive handily on-site to customers, supported with highly specified mobile service vehicles across the Pirtek network in Australia. Amongst the fleet are around 100 Isuzu trucks, the majority cherry picked from Isuzu’s 4,500 kg – 7,500 kg GVM N Series range.

The NPR 75-190 is a popular model of choice for Pirtek’s franchisees, who rely on their service trucks to meet the growing demands of a home-grown Australian customer base.

This franchise model sees service centres and mobile units criss-crossing Australia from cities and regional areas like Ballarat in Victoria, through to true outback locations such as Newman in Central Western Australia.

Pirtek Ballarat has a wide service footprint from Ballarat central to Melton in Melbourne’s East, through to Horsham in the west of the region.

As well as owning the franchise in Ballarat, Darren has another two operations, one servicing the Whitsunday & Collinsville region and the other servicing Mount Isa to Cloncurry—this being one of the largest territories in the country.

Dealer Principal Darren Campi says their fleet of Isuzu trucks, which is cemented by the NPR 75-190 (GVM of 7,500 kg), is simply the right fit for their technicians, who specialise in the supply and maintenance of hydraulic hoses and fittings for large-scale mining machines down to small excavators on home building sites.

“The one thing we say as part of the Pirtek network is that every day is different with the type of work we undertake,” Darren detailed.

“Industry in Ballarat and the areas that we service include manufacturing, forestry, construction, agriculture and civil works, so it is very diverse.”

Jobs will often see the team taken off the beaten track, from remote locations through to crowded work sites with various technicians and trades all needing to get down to their business.

Each Pirtek mobile unit is integrated with a custom service body by Allweld Manufacturing in Queensland to allow for large volume and weight of stock. Gullwing doors allow the technicians to work under cover, and trucks sport a high-demand electrical system on-board to power the tools and hose assembly equipment.

“We had the team in mind when we selected the NPR as we needed a truck hardy enough for the work benches and able to support the tools and machinery for the onsite jobs,” said Darren.

“We take the trucks into some rugged places, which can feel like the middle of nowhere.

“The NPR is easy to drive, works well in tight places and the turning circle is a massive bonus in some of our trickier locations.”
