ABOUT CORNELL DIESEL SYSTEMS
Bruce Cornell established the company (originally known as Cornell Fuel Injection) in 1965 in Port Melbourne to provide high-quality servicing for diesel systems. The business was at the forefront of fuel injection repair at the time. Establishing a reputation in the market for being innovative and providing high-quality services, the company evolved and expanded several times to accommodate demand. In 2006, the current owners acquired the business, leveraging the strength of the brand and reputation in the market. Due to continued growth, the company moved to a state-of-the-art facility in 2016 to provide end-to-end servicing of all diesel vehicles, utilising an extensive range of modern, high quality testing equipment including a Bosch 708 and three Hartridge AVM2-PC test benches, as well as a Hartridge Cri-PC to cover the latest electronic systems in the market.
