Mel­bourne’s Trailer Ston­es­tar is pre­par­ing for a big push into drop-decks , drop-deck widen­ers, wa­ter tankers, log trail­ers, side tip­pers and much more in 2019 to cap­i­talise on the boom in in­fra­struc­ture ac­tiv­ity.

Ston­es­tar says iden­ti­fy­ing and adapt­ing to mar­ket trends has been crit­i­cal to the com­pany’s suc­cess since it was es­tab­lished 20 years ago, ini­tially whole­sal­ing tyres and wheels.

In that time the Din­g­ley-based com­pany has tre­bled in size; with the fo­cus now firmly on trailer man­u­fac­ture and sup­ply of cranes and a wide ar­ray of large ma­chin­ery.

“One of the keys to our suc­cess is the abil­ity to adapt to mar­ket trends and plan in ad­vance. For ex­am­ple, this year through re­search we found there was a strong de­mand for dropdeck trail­ers and as a re­sult we have been able to ac­com­mo­date and fo­cus our ef­forts in this sec­tor,” the com­pany says.

“We have also started plan­ning for next year. With a large push in in­fra­struc­ture in 2019, es­pe­cially road­works, we will turn our fo­cus to drop-deck widen­ers and wa­ter tankers to en­sure we are al­ways ahead of the trend and prod­uct de­mand. It’s all about plan­ning ahead.”

In a mar­ket with long lead times, this for­ward plan­ning en­ables Ston­es­tar to of­fer an im­pres­sive three-week turn­around from the time of sale.

“Here at Ston­es­tar we are among the most prom­i­nent or­gan­i­sa­tions en­gaged in the field of sup­ply­ing high-qual­ity semi-trail­ers to our clients,” the com­pany says.

“With our years of ex­per­tise in our re­spec­tive field, we pro­vide our trail­ers with as­sur­ance of dura­bil­ity and reli­a­bil­ity. Be­hind it all is a mind­set that is unique to the team at Ston­es­tar, al­low­ing us to con­stantly change and adapt.”

Of­fer­ing a wide range of qual­ity prod­uct at “un­beat­able” prices has also been cru­cial to the com­pany’s growth.

Ston­es­tar’s trail­ers are de­signed by in-house en­gi­neers and fin­ished and “com­pli­anced” in Mel­bourne us­ing com­po­nents sourced both lo­cally and in­ter­na­tion­ally.

The com­pany sells more than 20 types of trail­ers, rang­ing from tri-axle and quad-axle widen­ers, ex­tend­able, low load­ers, drop-decks, side tip­pers and tilt slid­ers, to stain­less steel wa­ter tankers, vac­uum tankers, log trail­ers, con­tainer trail­ers, fuel tankers, ce­ment mix­ers and 25-tonne truck cranes.

“Ston­es­tar’s trail­ers are built to the high­est stan­dards. We proudly en­sure our prod­ucts fea­ture the lat­est in en­gi­neer­ing tech­nol­ogy,” the com­pany says.

Back­ing that up is a strong fo­cus on cus­tomer ser­vice, they point out. “Cus­tomer ser­vice is our first pri­or­ity. We treat our cus­tomers with the ut­most care, act­ing of the best in­ten­tions to serve them. Our main aim is to be able to keep con­sis­tently meet­ing cus­tomers’ stan­dards when look­ing for a trailer and con­tin­u­ing to grow our name for many years to come,” the com­pany says.

One of the keys to our suc­cess is the abil­ity to adapt to mar­ket trends and plan in ad­vance.
