A Mercedes-Benz appointed Unimog dealership, Mercedes-Benz Unimog Centre (MBUC) will officially open its doors on the 30th March 2019. This marks a significant milestone as one of the few Unimog Specialist dealership spread across Australia. Expect this to open opportunities for many businesses.
The Unimog is one of the most versatile vehicles across multiple industries such as agriculture, fire and rescue, and road-rail, municipality. Internationally, it typically finds itself as expedition vehicles, fire-trucks or mining utility vehicles.
This dealership provides the opportunity to directly supply brand new UGE and UHE Unimogs to these industries, alongside genuine parts and servicing. Most variants of both models will be available including short and long wheel base options.
With over 10 years of experience with Unimogs, the Director of MBUC, Daniel Mavin has professionally worked and used these machines through his personal venture Unidan Engineering. Having owned the Gold Coast based business since 2011, Daniel and his team have worked on restorations, expedition bodies and utility equipment for the Unimog. With his experience and skills, he is no stranger to the Unimog and aims to provide the Unimog to Australia with specialised service and support across multiple industries.
An official launch event has been set for the 30th March at 10 Trade Court, Molendinar, Queensland 4214, from 1pm to 4pm AEST where Mercedes-Benz, owners and Unimog enthusiast will gather to celebrate such a milestone. The event will also showcase Mercedes-Benz’s official demo dual cab U5023 fitted with Unidan’s signature tray. Giveaways, exclusive workshop tours and live demonstrations are planned for the day, and will be a great opportunity for Australia to see what the Unimog is capable of.
MBUC/Unidan Engineering Director, Daniel Mavin said:
“This is an amazing opportunity for us, and for the Australian commercial sector. I’ve been working with Unimogs since 2007 and see the potential in what they can achieve here. I’m looking forward to growing the Unimog industry within Australia.”
