NHVR welcomes new industry group


NHVR Chief Executive Officer Sal Petroccitto welcomes the creation of Heavy Vehicle Industry Australia (HVIA), following unanimous support by Commercial Vehicle Industry Association of Queensland (CVIAQ), as the new national body.

The HVIA will provide an Australian wide industry focus for its members and will be the representative body in design, manufacture, importation, distribution, modification, sale, service and repair of on-road vehicles over 3.5 tonnes.

Mr Petroccitto welcomed the benefits the new industry group would bring to its representative sector and congratulated Mr Bob Martin of Jost Australia Pty Ltd who has been voted in as the first HVIA president.

“The HVIA has now been given the mandate by its members to go forward as a single nationally focused organisation tackling manufacturing, suppliers and heavy vehicle component matters across the heavy vehicle industry.”

“We look forward to working with the HVIA in the future,” Mr Petroccitto said.
