The Family that works together…

Since 2004 Torquepower has enjoyed a strong relationship with Progress Heavy Vehicles.  Adrian and Annette O’Donnell are the new owners, but are well known to each other, with an interlinked history. PHVR was formerly owned and operated by Peter Morgan – Workshop Foreman at Torquepower, and Adrian worked at Boral for 26  years with Peter Morgan.

“We look after everyday areas, like greasing right through to major trailer services. I’ve got a variety of good guys here with a diverse skill sets particularly with Cummins engines, they have good knowledge and Cummins experience.”

“My father taught me straight up what I didn’t want to do in life. He was a panel beater, and it was my job to help him after school. That definitely steered me away from panel-beating. He pointed out that there was a lot of trucks on the road and someone needed to look after them. “

When I came across this business, I knew it had a good history and reputation, and it suited me and my family to return to the diesel industry.  Annette has skills in accounting and administration, and our two boys are diesel mechanics. “

“I believe the Family that works together, stays together. We also like to play around with motor racing, which has taken us all-over Australia. The boys are Junior champions and now they are working their way up to the senior categories. Casey our youngest son won the 2020 Wingless QLD Title which was a huge achievement amongst a field of 35 cars and became the youngest QLD Champion in history with this win. We love Speedway racing. The family gets right into it. Everyone has an important role, enjoys it and we get some good results. It’s pretty handy to have a family of mechanics, plus of course Dad does the panels. “

“Torquepower  looks after our Cummins Parts supply, everything from gaskets to water pumps  and so on. Torquepower have a great availability of –  parts any issues we work together to get the customer back on the road sooner. “

Paul Duce, Torquepower sales manager “ The best way we can support Progress, is with on-time parts supply, the right parts every time; and tech support. It’s all about getting the customer back on the road in a timely manner . “
