Our Story

Sunshine Coasters – And Proud Of It!

When it comes to professional, friendly service and great value, you can’t go past your local diesel fuel injection experts.
North Coast Diesel Service has been keeping the Sunshine Coast moving since 1978, when owner Steve Cornish first opened his doors. Steve certainly knows his stuff, having worked in the industry for over 40 years.

Trained On The Sunshine Coast

Completing his apprenticeship locally, in Kingaroy, Steve took his newfound knowledge and skills to Lae, PNG in 1975. Returning to Australia, he worked in diesel fuel injection repairs in Brisbane.
By 1978, having moved to the Sunshine Coast, he knew he was ready for his own business, opening North Coast Diesel Service in 1978. With no other diesel workshops between Brisbane and Gympie, Steve quickly became the go-to, for repairs, parts and servicing.

Providing Quality Service

A true local, and a family man through and through, Steve settled into married life, with his children all attending local schools. Two of his children even worked part-time in the family business, before moving into their chosen careers.
From the moment he opened his doors, Steve’s goal has been to provide good quality service and advice in all areas of fuel injection systems.

Customer Care Is #1

Building his team of friendly, well trained technicians, his philosophy is simple. “It’s all about caring for the customer, and providing the best results possible, at a price the customer can afford,” he said. “It’s all based on diligence, good ethics, conscientiousness, honesty, and loyalty.” North Coast Diesel Service supports other local businesses by purchasing products locally, wherever possible.

Meet The Team

Next time you’re passing, or you need help with your diesel fuel injection system, call in and say ‘hello’.
As well as Steve, the North Coast Diesel Service team includes Rowan Turner, Hayden Condon, and Rooke Farrugia.
