Providing a one-stop part shop for Asian commercial vehicles
WANO is a newly founded company that promises to make life easier for commercial vehicle owners, light truck owners, and independent servicing workshops.
With one call, WANO’s customers will reportedly have access to the supply chains of seven of the biggest independent suppliers of Japanese and Asian commercial vehicles.
This business is also geared toward external service agents, cooling system specialists, in-house workshops, tuners, panel shops, cooling system specialists, and auto electricians for commercial vehicles.
The businesses that have combined to form WANO include HIM Spares, Don Kyatt Queensland, He Knows Truck Parts, I Know Parts, Japanese Trucks Australia, Japanese Commercial Spares and Truck Parts Dubbo.
These businesses have extensive commercial parts sourcing capabilities, representing decades of industry experience.
Additionally, WANO is supported by the automotive aftermarket resources and customer service capabilities of the BAPCOR Group.
WANO states it will provide Australia’s most comprehensive range of parts to suit Japanese and Asian commercial vehicle makes and models.
The company has over 70,000 SKU lines across 15 locations, and WANO assures it will continue to grow. If a customer is seeking a part that is not in stock, WANO says it will source the part directly.
WANO states that operators of Isuzu, Hino, Fuso, UD, Toyota, Nissan and LDV in light commercial classes are all covered.
Mathew Cooper, the Executive General Manager of BAPCOR Mechanical, is excited about the start of a new and exciting chapter in Australia’s commercial vehicle parts business.
“Combining more than a half century of expertise and premium quality parts sourcing for Australia’s constantly growing Japanese and Asian commercial vehicle sector, WANO brings a new level of stockholding, customer service and convenience to this important automotive aftermarket sector through this new and unique national brand,” Mathew said.
“In seeking to provide the best possible customer service and value to as many repairers as possible, we plan to extend the WANO store national footprint to reach 40 stores by 2025 to meet the demand of this growing automotive aftermarket sector.”
