Our History

Over 40 years of reliability and integrity

MTD Trucks supplies new and used trucks and new buses from the Volvo Group (Mack & Volvo) direct to customers in the commercial transport industry. Our clients range from single truck owners to fleet owners and large primary produce companies.

With a focus on our customers, we provide full transport solutions, including a variety of quality products supported by after-sales service. Our goal is to have a successful partnership with our customers whatever their line of business, by keeping them on the road safely with minimum down-time. We have sales and service representatives located throughout New Zealand. Contact us today.

MTD NZ Ltd was founded under the name Palmerston North Motors and until 1972 traded solely in used heavy vehicles.


A franchise agreement with Mack Trucks Inc USA was obtained and that year production started in Palmerston North with the first Mack FR model truck to be assembled in New Zealand.


A move was made from Matipo Street to the current site on Malden Street to accommodate a CKD product facility and the growing demand for the Mack product.


A nationwide service network (Truck Stops NZ Ltd) was set up to provide parts and service for the large number of trucks working around the country.


MTD was purchased by Corporate Investments Ltd to form part of the Truck Investments group, and that year MTD took over the Renault franchise for NZ.


MTD closed down their Palmerston North CKD facility and began importing FBU Mack product from what was then Mack Trucks Australia Pty Ltd (now Volvo Group Australia). The Truck Investments group was purchased by Cycle & Carriage Ltd


The Truck Investments group was sold to Sime Darby Berhad.

MTD won the rights to represent Volvo Truck and Bus product in New Zealand which then gave us three of the four brands owned by Volvo Truck Group. Today MTD Trucks is a fully owned subsidiary company of Sime Darby Motors New Zealand.
