New owners took over Kingaroy Machinery Centre five years ago … but now the business also has a new name plus a new location!
Tranzmile owners Courtney and Cameron Black bought KMC, which had been servicing the South Burnett since 1945, in April 2014.
They immediately expanded the range of parts available at the Kingaroy Street business.
This expansion also made the couple start to think about new premises.
Their bright new store at Kingaroy’s Bunya Highway Industrial Estate – painted in orange and black – was officially opened by Member for Nanango Deb Frecklington on Saturday morning.
The open day also featured trade stalls, a jumping castle for the kids plus displays of historic trucks and cars.
Courtney told southburnett.com.au the move was a good opportunity to rebrand KMC to match the rest of their group.
The Black family’s Tranzmile group consists of 14 stores across Queensland and NSW, including four franchisees.
However, the Kingaroy store is the second biggest outlet, next to Brisbane.
Courtney said she believed the South Burnett area had been under-serviced when it came to this sort of business, and it was a huge opportunity for the company.
Tranzmile stocks truck, trailer and 4WD spare parts and accessories in an open Bunnings-style warehouse where purchasers can browse what is available.
Their Kingaroy store is currently looking for staff, including a spare parts interpreter and people with experience in truck, 4WD and trailer parts.
Tranzmile is the aftermarket truck and trailer parts arm of the Black Truck & Ag company which sells and services Isuzu, Iveco and Western Star trucks and Isuzu utes; and New Holland and AGCO tractors and harvesters in Toowoomba, Moree, Goondiwindi, Dalby and Roma.
