THE DRAKE Group consists of key brands Drake Trailers, O’Phee Trailers and Drake Collectibles – with all three brands coming together to wow spectators at the Brisbane Truck Show.
Two stands housed more trailers than any other exhibitor, ranging from deck wideners, to low boys, and a magnificent range of detailed 1: 50th die- cast truck and trailer models.
Drake Group business development manager Sam Drake says Brisbane was a great chance to showcase the strength of the collaboration between Drake Trailers and recently acquired O’Phee Trailers.
“The truck show was a great success that gave us the perfect platform to launch our recently formed entity – The Drake Group,” Drake explains. “It gave us the opportunity to demonstrate our capability in both trailer manufacturing markets as well as officially launch our latest in die- cast models.
“The numbers were greater than we have ever seen, including quality customer base, enthusiasts and industry personnel,” he says.
