The workshop boys here at Daimler Trucks Sunshine Coast have been busy improving their skills, knowledge and capabilities in order to pass Detroit's extensive 'DD expert' training program. The result; the workshop has now transitioned from 'DD maintenance' to 'EXPERT QUALIFIED' status.
In fact, 7 of our 8 diesel mechanics are now EXPERT qualified which smashes the 30% benchmark required by Detroit and makes us officially the most qualified workshop to carry out repairs, warranty work and full DD engine overhauls on your Freightliner or Western Star Detroit engine.
Dealer Principal Chris Spence made the decision last year to invest in the required training, parts and tools needed to be able to attain the EXPERT status for the business.
Chris said; "Being able to have the capabilities to offer the full plethora of warranty and engine overhaul repairs for our prime mover customers is a great move for us. Historically, we were limited by the type of work we could perform with the bigger more complex work having to be performed in Brisbane. Now, thanks to the efforts of the workshop and our commitment to investing in the right tools and parts for the job, means our customers, from the Sunshine Coast all way to north Queensland, can choose to use us and our easily accessible, state of art workshop for all their Detroit warranty and overhaul repairs.
Offering more services, locally is good news for our regional prime mover customers who don't want the inconvenience of travelling into Brisbane for repairs!"
