In 1991, Statewide 4×4 began as a small automotive workshop trading as TRS Engineering on Eastmont St, Northcote Victoria. Within 12 months, business had expanded and moved location to larger premises to keep up with the demand.
The change to High St, Northcote saw the business become one of the leading automotive specialists for the Northern Suburbs of Melbourne with constant growth of clients. By 1997, TRS Engineering became a company and was renamed Statewide Automotive Pty Ltd.
After 9 years at High St, a forced relocation occured due to development projects in the area. Although the move was not ideal, it did not change the business growth in anyway. The new workshop was located on Arthurton Rd, Northcote. By this time, the company had slowly started to change business direction into the 4×4 Servicing and Parts whilst still maintaining passenger vehicle clients.
The year 2009 saw Statewide Automotive become Statewide Auto & Offroad in it’s current location of Preston. With the change came an almost complete change in business direction to focus on 4WD Servicing, Parts & Accessories whilst also expanding Company Fleet Servicing, Consultation and Commercial Vehicle Fit Outs.
Being conveniently located and having ample workshop space (the outside is deceiving of it’s size) has allowed Statewide 4×4 to continue to grow.
These physical, structural and product changes we have undergone over the years are undoubtedly a response to the growing needs of our client base. We are now able to provide a more rounded service whilst still maintaining our client focus.
