Mov­ing in a pos­i­tive di­rec­tion

Barker Trail­ers builds on

Big Rigs - - AD­VER­TIS­ING FEA­TURE -

COM­MIT­TED to its role as a key player in the lo­cal man­u­fac­tur­ing of qual­ity trail­ers, Barker Trail­ers is con­tin­u­ing to ex­pand on its great depth, with chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Si­mon Mead­ows assem­bling a se­nior man­age­ment struc­ture to take the 43-year-old Barker Trail­ers busi­ness well into the fu­ture.

One of the lat­est ad­di­tions is the an­nounce­ment of Rod Cun­ning­ham to the role of gen­eral man­ager sales and mar­ket­ing.

“Rod’s ex­pe­ri­ence in­cludes a va­ri­ety of se­nior man­age­ment roles across the in­dus­try, from com­po­nents through to truck and trailer OEMs. Such broad ex­pe­ri­ence across the Aus­tralian trans­port mar­ket is a per­fect com­ple­ment to the strong Barker of­fer­ing go­ing for­ward,” said Si­mon.

Con­fi­dence and de­mand for the Barker prod­uct of­fer­ing has al­ways been strong and Barker Trail­ers has con­fi­dently taken hold of the pos­i­tive feed­back and or­ders re­ceived from the re­cent Bris­bane Truck Show to con­tinue its fo­cus on rein­vig­o­rat­ing the team and its com­mit­ment to the mar­ket, while main­tain­ing its renowned ap­proach to trailer in­no­va­tion, de­sign and engi­neer­ing.

“We’ve given the mar­ket a peek into the fu­ture of Barker Trail­ers, with both our cur­tain-sided and refuse trailer models un­der­go­ing im­prove­ments with new fea­tures which will fur­ther help cap­i­talise on the in­creased de­mand,” ex­plained Si­mon.

Barker has re­launched the easy-op­er­a­tion “iconic” cur­tain­sider to meet the grow­ing mar­ket.

Es­tab­lished in Wood­end, Vic­to­ria, in 1974, Barker Trail­ers now utilises more than 30,000sq m of fac­tory space and ser­vices the whole coun­try with great trailer freight so­lu­tions.

In the com­ing months, Rod will be tak­ing the op­por­tu­nity to meet with trans­port op­er­a­tors across Aus­tralia to high­light how the com­pany’s ex­pe­ri­enced team and cus­tomer-driven fo­cus will pro­vide first-class so­lu­tions and ser­vice.
