About Us

In a Sydenham warehouse in the early 1970’s Canterbury Transport Engineers began business building heavy trailers. After struggling to source all of their parts locally, the company began increasingly stocking its own parts. It was a natural progression for the company to enter the parts trade and Canterbury Transport Spares Limited was born.

Initially it was tough breaking into this new market. However, the parts side of the business grew so solidly that in 1987 the decision was made to exit the trailer building market. The CTS product range grew to reflect the increasing diversity of trucks, trailers and buses on New Zealand roads. This comprehensive product range of truck, trailer and bus parts would become one of CTS’s main strengths.

Growth over the ensuing years necessitated a move to larger premises at 129 Waterloo Road, Hornby where the company is now based. CTS now has branches in both Auckland and Dunedin to better serve the customers in these regions. To this day CTS remains a locally owned family business. Our experienced staff are committed to service. Contact us at Commercial Transport Spares for more information.
