Recipe for success
FAMILY- OWNED MANUFACTURER Vawdrey has more than 40 years in the trailer game, and its presence at the Brisbane Truck Show this year highlighted a strong productivity focus.
“PBS is alive and well, and we’ve got a range of approved trailers on display now,” Vawdrey national sales manager Justin Simmonds says.
“We’ve got 26- pallet options, 14- pallet highcube 4.6m trailers running under HML, we’ve got auto mezz deck devices, we’ve got auto curtain technology – we’ve got it all on show.
“There’s a lot in the way of load restraint and productivity on offer, and the 22- pallet freezer unit, which comes in at about 9.86 tonnes, is a popular display at the show for us.
“The LatchLiner buckle-less curtain system also drew a lot of attention throughout the show.”
Simmonds says a real benefit for Vawdrey is its focus on quality manufacturing and family- owned approach to business.
“We’ve been in Australia for about 43 years now and we’ve got a very loyal following,” he says.
“We’re big enough to know and small enough to care, so we can build to a recipe rather than a price.
“We’re always striving and pushing the industry and we have a few big surprises coming up so we aren’t sitting idle, that’s for sure.”
