Hino Australia has announced the senior appointments of Peter Michetti and Martin Kraenzel to its Parts Distribution Centre (PDC).

Michetti has rejoined the Hino Australia team as the PDC manager. He has more than 35 years of truck and automotive industry experience, including senior roles with Hino Australia.

Kraenzel has been appointed to the role of PDC team leader, and previously held similar roles at Hino parent company Toyota Australia.

"We are delighted to welcome Peter and Martin to the Hino Australia team – they bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the business and, more specifically, the PDC," Hino Australia general manager of product support Greg Bleasel says.

"Strong sales over the past decade has led to an exponential rise in the number of Hino trucks on the road, which resulted in record parts sales in 2018.

"In addition, we continue to strongly focus on increasing dealership workshop activity and parts sales through service retention programs such as capped price services for all Hino trucks compliant with Euro 5 emissions regulations."

"This increase in parts sales and servicing has a natural flow-on to our PDC, which will be remodelled to accept the growth, and ensure greater efficiencies between Hino Australia and our dealerships."

Michetti replaces Scott Brown while Kraenzel replaces the retiring John Rooney, and both have already started in their new roles.
