Introducing PJL Diesel Electric

Formed in 1992 by a family team, PJL Diesel Electric was renowned as a specialist importer and wholesaler in the industrial automotive electrical equipment industry. The business provided product solutions throughout Australia, Asia, Africa and New Zealand for agricultural, marine, mining, transport and off-highway applications.

On 1 September 2014, GPC Asia Pacific, of which Ashdown-Ingram is a business unit, announced the acquisition of PJL Diesel Electric.

It has been business as usual for customers whilst PJL and Ashdown-Ingram have worked closely behind the scenes to leverage combined strengths to create the best possible outcome for customers.

These changes mark a new era as the integrated PJL and Ashdown-Ingram offer provide customers with a wider range, more inventory, more brands, and an even greater depth of knowledge to solve those difficult problems.

Mr Rob Cameron, Executive General Manager of the Automotive Specialist Group (a division of GPC Asia Pacific Pty Ltd) said “We are delighted to welcome customers, team members and suppliers of PJL to the GPC Asia Pacific family. This acquisition provides us with an outstanding platform to deliver a compellingly superior customer value proposition, utilising the strengths of PJL, Ashdown-Ingram and the wider GPC Asia Pacific group of businesses. It enables us to further respond to the increasing demand from our customers for a vast range of automotive products, ease of doing business, higher service levels, all delivered at greater value.”
