VISTA Semi-Finals Twist
- 14 Mar 2018
The VISTA (Volvo International Service Training Award) Competion Semi-Final teams were announced last week, with the news that CMV Truck & Bus secured 4 places in the Australian/New Zealand top 10 (2 teams from Derrimut and 2 teams from Clayton), however we missed the qualifying top 5 cut. Our congratulations go to South Central Trucks who successfully placed 2 teams in the top 5, earning them spots at the Semi-Finals in Gothenburg next month.
However, in a surprising twist, Derrimut's Team #1 (Gavin Stowe, James Greenwood, Justin Westcott and Wafi Hussain) was picked from a wildcard draw today by Volvo Trucks International Senior Vice President, Heléne Mellquist. This makes them the 57th qualifying Semi-Final team, and we wish the lads all the best competing for a place in the Grand Final that will take place in Brazil at the end of June this year.
People and Parks Day
- 20 Oct 2017
Today, through the assistance of the CMV Group Foundation, CMV Truck & Bus will join a range of bus industry stakeholders and the Victorian Government to launch a new environmental sustainability project in Melbourne’s west.
The People and Parks Day initiative on October 20 supports Parks Victoria’s 10-year Masterplan to rejuvenate the Werribee Park grasslands to provide sustainable, community parks and recreational facilities in Wyndham.
In association with the People & Parks Foundation, CDC Victoria and Volgren, CMV Truck & Bus have committed to investing a first tranche donation that will equate to $78,000 over 2-years on a revegetation project and other future park facilities with our bus industry partners.
The event to be held at Werribee River Park will raise both awareness and funds to develop a greener west. The Hon. Liliana (Lily) D’Ambrosio – Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change and Treasurer, the Hon. Tim Pallas MP will be involved in the official ceremony.
To be part of this Bus-led sustainability project, visit www.unidy.org/agreenerwest and donate. For every dollar contributed, the three bus industry partners will match your dollar equally. So if you give $10, your donation will grow to $40. Give $100 and your donation quadruples to $400 (up to our first tranche target of $35,000). It’s that simple!
The Crowd funding platform will go live from Thursday 19 October and closes on Monday 23 October 2017.
We’d love for your support as we play our part in ‘Delivering a Greener West’.
