Moving in a positive direction
Barker Trailers builds on
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.
