Johannesburg Truck & Bus, owned by Imperial Group’s Motor Retail Division, opened an impressive new dealership in City Deep, Johannesburg, in February this year.
The new service facility forms part of MAN Truck & Bus South Africa’s nationwide network of 31 proprietary and independent dealerships, dedicated to supporting the full spectrum of MAN truck and bus products.
Parastatal organisation to state-of-the-art service facility
Having purchased the dealership from Eskom six years ago while it was located in Rosherville, Gauteng, Imperial Group appointed Greg Mervitz as general manager to transform the business from a parastatal organisation into a fully-fledged entrepreneurial operation.
“The move to our new high-profile location on Heidelberg Road in City Deep follows an extremely successful half-decade of transformation within the dealership since the buyout in 2008,” said Mervitz.
The move from Rosherville to the new R50 million facility was executed with absolute efficiency, enabling the dealership to not lose a single day of operations.
