Subsequently we have been advised that the previous agents for KEA Australia have ceased trading and that its directors have appointed a Liquidator for the business.
With thl entering into an agreement to take up the license of the brands in Australia there should be minimal disruption to existing and future KEA Australia customers.
thl will endeavour to ensure the customers are seamlessly transitioned to thl branches in the four Australian cities in which KEA operates. thl has also leased sufficient KEA design fleet to deliver the same high-quality service to existing and future KEA Australia customers.
thl Chief Executive Grant Webster said: “Our immediate focus is to ensure KEA Australia customers on the road and those with future bookings get to enjoy the holiday they are expecting: a great Australian motorhome experience”.
“The KEA Australia leadership team have been very supportive in ensuring their customers are well catered for into the future given their difficult situation. We are pleased we have the financial strength, infrastructure and people in place to be able to assist.”
“KEA Australia customers can be assured their needs will be attended to. We have the full intention of honouring the terms, conditions and pricing offered by KEA Australia in the market place today and will deal with any issues with customers on the road with care and respect.”
KEA Australia customers with queries on the changes can call 1800 705 174 for more information.
Mr Webster added thl was thrilled at the prospect of combining the KEA Australia brand within its stable of brands.
“The KEA brand in Australia nicely compliments thl’s existing Maui motorhome product in Australia, providing a different vehicle and experience that extends and enhances the thl product suite.”
