Long time Morwell business, Latrobe Valley Diesel, has re-opened after a brief period of closure following the untimely death of former owner, Mr Bruce Mason.

With an established client base stretching across Gippsland, the business under Mr Mason’s management, became well known for its high level of expertise and quality service.

The business closed in October last year and has now been re-opened by Robert Comer who brings a wealth of experience in all aspects of diesel mechanics to Gippsland.

Mr Comer is a director of two diesel fuel injection businesses in northern Victoria; Axedale Diesel Pty Ltd and Rich River Fuel Injection and Turbo Service in Echuca. He is currently President of the Victorian – Tasmania

branch of the Association of Australasian Diesel Specialists Inc, a position he has held for four years but will relinquish soon to concentrate on his new business ventures.

According to Mr Comer, re-opening this 25-year-old business venture has been a personal goal for many months that has finally been fulfilled.

"I used to work in Bairnsdale and had a great admiration for Bruce and the manner in which he was respected throughout the industry," Mr Comer said.

In congratulating and welcoming Mr Comer, Latrobe City Mayor, Cr Brendan Jenkins, said that it was very encouraging for businesses to be re-opened and given a new lease of life, especially by people with high levels of expertise with extensive industry networks.

"In Roberts’s case, with two other businesses in Victoria, Latrobe Valley Diesel Services will now be an integral part of a larger business, able to service the needs of operators should they be travelling beyond Gippsland," Cr Jenkins said.

Latrobe Valley Diesel Services specialises in repairs, sales and servicing to all types of fuel injecting systems including Bosch, C.A.V, Denso Caterpillar, Cummins Fuel Systems and most turbo charging systems for trucks, tractors, buses and four wheel-drives.
