Kenworth awards long-standing dealer with award

One of Australia’s longest serving truck dealerships has been rewarded for a strong 2023 with this latest accolade

PACCAR has announced Kenworth DAF Huntingwood as DAF dealer of the year.  

Also known as Gilbert & Roach Huntingwood, the dealership forms part of the Suttons Group and was first established in 1946. 

It is the first time that the Huntingwood dealership has been awarded the accolade. 

DAF says the dealership excelled in all areas that the award considers, including customer relationships, facilities, parts and service, finance performance, market share, growth and aftersales support. 

“Kenworth DAF Huntingwood has been a valued member of our dealer network since 1981,” Paccar Australia managing director Damian Smethurst says.  

“It is wonderful to see the Suttons Group celebrate its 80th anniversary in 2023 and it is a credit to everyone at Huntingwood who has ultimately contributed towards winning this award.” 

Huntingwood general manager Zane Jamieson says the award wouldn’t be possible without the support of everyone from the dealership. 

“It means so much to everyone. Our DAF customers and their commitment and faith in us drive us to be better every day,” Jamieson says. 

Sutton Motors director Craig Sutton says it is an honour for the group to win the award. 

“The Huntingwood team led by Zane and Glenn are heavily focused on DAF and are continuing to grow the brand,” Sutton says.
