History

Country Diesel Maintenance (CDM) was formally established in Alice Springs in 1992 by a diesel mechanic as a quality mechanical repair business. In the early years we performed a lot of work for remote communities and for people living and working in remote locations.

After seeing many vehicles breakdown immediately after being serviced in their town workshops, it became evident that the vehicles and machines working in these environments require more thorough servicing than the dealership recommends and more than the average mechanic is generally able to offer.

As a result of this, we developed a system that is more thorough than most workshops offer. Our system was designed specifically with the aim to make vehicles safer and more reliable in the bush. The attitude required to be able to perform this type of servicing is well cultured in our workplace and is one of our strengths.

We like to spend time getting to know our customers, so we can provide the kind of service that specifically caters to their personal requirements. Our team are fully aware that each and every owner has their own needs and budgets. Through regular communication, we try to individually tailor the servicing to the vehicle and owner's needs. We also have the integrity to ensure that all the work we have been paid to do is actually undertaken, as we are aware there are dishonest mechanics who claim for services they haven't provided.

Our system is flexible and can be applied to a wide range of equipment, ensuring that all machinery gets the same quality service. All of our work is documented and recorded in our system. Our customers get a detailed account of the work done and where applicable, a written report.

Now, over 22 years later, we still perform that service day in, day out. This has resulted in our building a consistent customer base ranging from small private owners wishing to maintain their 4WD's in top condition, all the way through to vast multi-national companies requiring high-end technical repairs to large fleets of vehicles.

We are mostly town based, undertaking repairs from our workshop, but still have the mobility to work in remote areas if the need arises.

CDM is a small business with a limited number of employees, but we believe this is beneficial for our customers, as the quality of service we provide remains consistent. We work together as a team and are continually training our staff. Our team pride themselves on being adaptable to changing situations and new technologies.

We are based in a workshop that is clean and modern, along with being well equipped for a wide range of servicing and repairs. Our equipment is technologically advanced, updated and serviced regularly and we are continually expanding our range. We have a fully sealed clean room for assembling critical components such as engines, differentials and transmissions.

Company Policy

In line with our commitment to the quality of our work we are equally committed to protecting the work environment and safety of our employees, who effectively carry out the functions that protect and maintain our reputation. Parallel with this ideal is our commitment to the protection of the environment in the community at large.

Our policy is to serve the needs of our customers at all times with courtesy, diligence and good humour. If found to be in error, we will address the problem with promptness and civility, thus endeavouring to provide customer and community satisfaction at all times.

Safety

The Management of Country Diesel Maintenance is totally committed to the provision of a safe and environmentally friendly workplace for its employees, contractors, visitors and customers. We fully recognise our Duty of Care as detailed in the Work Health Act (1986) and we have put in place an Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS) to achieve this objective. It is the fervent aim of this Company to make every year an accident free zone.

Environmental
Our work can be dirty work!

However, CDM is conscious and proactive in the effect that our enterprise is having on our environment.

Environment

We believe that it is the fundamental right of every individual to have a clean, healthy and safe environment to live in, to work in and more importantly to raise their families in.

Country Diesel Maintenance is a small company, but we are totally committed to making whatever contribution we can, small though it may be, toward the achievement of that fundamental right for our community.

Here are some of the systems we have in place to minimise our impact on the environment.

Waste Oil Management

All of our customers waste oil is captured and contained to be taken away for recycling or to be re-used in other products.

Trade Waste Management

Our trade waste covers a range of substance, all of which are low toxicity. Any general waste that is produced by our company is minimised and handled in the most environmentally friendly manner available to us.

Vertical Gravity Separator

We have installed a wash bay system that separates contaminants from the wash down water and traps the contaminants for safe and proper disposal.

Scrap Metal Recycling

Any metals that we handle are sorted, separated and sent for recycling.

Solar Power

We have installed a 10kw solar power system to the roof of our workshop. This system is grid connected and as long as the sun shines on it, we make power for our local grid. We have also made substantial reductions in our power consumption, because of this our solar system generates slightly more electricity than we use in a normal year.

Testimonials

Over the course of many years we have come in contact with thousands of different customers and have had many great experiences with people,also forming many long lasting friendships. Some of our customer relationships began more than 20 years ago and we believe that it is largely the quality of our clientele that make our jobs enjoyable. The consistently positive feedback we receive from our customers is very encouraging.

After all, our customers are the reason we are here. Here is what some of them have had to say.
