IVECO Trucks Australia employs over 290 people from more than 20 different nationalities and produces 1200 trucks from its Dandenong, Victoria plant every year. Its presence marks a 60 year commitment to the local truck and bus industries and local component suppliers.
The IVECO Powerstar and ACCO ranges along with the Metro and Delta bus cab chassis are Australian designed, engineered and manufactured from Dandenong. IVECO also manufactures the Stralis AS-L, AT and AD models here.
The benefits of manufacturing locally allow customers to tailor vehicles, where available, to suit their exact specifications. New process innovation introduced from being part of the CNH Industrial Group worldwide has allowed the IVECO Dandenong plant to maintain its commitment to Australian manufacturing while developing sophisticated supply chains to drive efficiency. The purpose-built Powerstar combines the strength and durability to operate and thrive in Australia's demanding conditions and environment, and is a favourite among transport and logistics companies nationwide. The ACCO has built its reputation on 40 plus years of offering great value, rugged toughness and dependability. Widely used by councils in waste management, as well as by construction companies in agitator applications, the ACCO is proudly Australia’s preferred vocational truck. While the Metro and Delta bus cab chassis are highly regarded for their smooth ride, quality componentry and durability.
