SYDNEY – May 21, 2013: Nationwide Off Road Truck Sales has expanded its relationship with NC2 Global Australia, a wholly owned subsidiary of Navistar, to become an NC2 dealership and supplier of all wheel drive International Workstar trucks in Australia.

For more than five years, Nationwide has imported right-hand-drive International® trucks into Australia, where it has fitted them with highly specialized equipment and then leased them to large jobsite and mining customers under a fully maintained lease. These trucks have been in a variety of applications as service trucks, bucket and digger trucks and water and fuel trucks. In the expanded relationship, Nationwide will not only lease these trucks, but will also be able to sell all-wheel-drive (AWD) trucks to their customers.

“We are excited to expand our existing relationship with Nationwide,” said Bill Fulton, managing director, Cat Trucks Australia and New Zealand. ”Their excellent reputation and extensive network of relationships in the mining and construction industries offers expanded opportunities for International trucks in Australia.”

Nationwide will offer 4x4 and 6x6 Workstar series trucks to customers wishing to buy their own AWD truck for use as a service, lube, EWP, fuel or water truck, or for any other use. AWD adds a new dimension to site-specific service trucks, and is well positioned to help Nationwide Off Road Truck Sales fill a void in the current market, for both road-registrable and site-compliant vehicles.

“The quality, ruggedness and simplicity of the International brand make it a great fit for Nationwide contractor and job site customers,” said Steve Barnard, chief executive officer of Nationwide. “We are very excited by the expansion of our existing relationship with NC2, and are looking forward to introducing a whole new range of trucks into the Australian off-road market. We are confident they will provide a cost-effective alternative to the existing practice of using highway trucks in the often harsh and unforgiving mining and construction workplaces.”

All trucks will come with the International comprehensive warranty, and Nationwide will provide complete parts and full back-up service for the vehicles.
