Penske Australia dealer North Star Motors’ Tamworth branch is now under the ownership of Double R Trucks.

Tamworth is the seventh dealership across New South Wales and Western Australia for Double R, which assumes responsibility for Western Star, MAN, Dennis Eagle and Detroit sales, parts, and service in the area.

Situated a few minutes from Double R Equipment’s Dampier Street location, the former North Star Motors branch at 105 Gunnedah Road Tamworth is transitioning ownership to Double R Trucks to "allow for shared resources and capabilities across the two locations".

"It is an exciting step forward for Double R to have joined the Penske Australia dealer network representing the Western Star Trucks, MAN Truck & Bus, Dennis Eagle, and Detroit brands," Double R Trucks owner and director Rusty Russell says.

"With key members of the former North Star Motors team joining the existing team at Double R, we are committed to delivering outstanding customer support on sales, parts, and service to the Tamworth region across both our locations.

"From the rugged Western Star line-up, the innovative MAN range, and the safe and efficient Dennis Eagles, to the well-proven Detroit engines, we are confident that our partnership with Penske Australia will be a success for all parties including loyal customers in the Tamworth region.

"Double R congratulates North Star Motors on many years of quality brand representation in the Tamworth region."

With expertise across the heavy-duty trucking, mining, and agricultural industries, Double R has been expanding its services, markets and locations since being established in 2005.

North Star Motors Newcastle will continue its appointment as a dealer of Western Star Trucks, MAN Truck & Bus, Dennis Eagle, and Detroit.
