CablePrice signs with Detroit for South Island

CablePrice announced its recent appointment as an authorised service dealer for Detroit on-highway engines across four key locations in the South Island

"With our long history of servicing and supporting the transport and heavy diesel industries in the South Island, we see this latest addition of Detroit as a natural extension that complements the recent addition of Mercedes-Benz, Freightliner, and Fuso trucks," says Aidan Mahony, CablePrice deputy managing director.

"Detroit is excited to commence a new partnership with CablePrice," says Sean McLean, general manager technical services, Penske Australia & New Zealand.

"With a well-proven track record in the design and manufacture of heavy-duty engines, Detroit engines deliver optimal performance while maximising reliability.

"We are confident that CablePrice and its customers across the South Island will reap the benefits that Detroit provides, including the new DD13 and DD16 engines in the Freightliner Cascadia range."


In addition to a team of parts and service technicians on the ground, Detroit customers will also benefit from access to CablePrice’s 24/7 call centre for additional support and increased service options.

"We are excited about this agreement with Detroit. They have a great reputation and produce an excellent range of engines that complement our existing commercial vehicle line-up. This new agreement will see CablePrice providing South Island customers with increased local aftersales support along with the knowledge that they’re well backed by an industry-leading team," says Aidan.

Detroit parts and service support is available from CablePrice’s Christchurch, Timaru, Greymouth, and Invercargill locations.
