A MES­SAGE FROM DEAN JENKINS

Australian Transport News - - Maxinews - Dean Jenkins. Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor and CEO

Wel­come to is­sue 19 of Max­iNEWS. This is­sue ar­rives at a very ex­cit­ing time for Max­iTRANS with the re­lease of a num­ber of new prod­ucts. Maxi-CUBE re­cently re­leased an evo­lu­tion of its Clas­sic model which fea­tures a num­ber of sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ments in tare weight and ther­mal ef­fi­ciency. As a re­sult of all the up­grades, we have been able to achieve an im­prove­ment of up to 5% in ther­mal ef­fi­ciency and a 250kg tare weight re­duc­tion over the pre­vi­ous model, trans­lat­ing to im­proved per­for­mance, in­tegrity of car­ried prod­uct and fuel ef­fi­ciency for own­ers. The new Maxi-CUBE Clas­sic fea­tures a num­ber of up­grades with safety in mind, brighter in­ter­nal LED lights for im­proved vis­i­bil­ity, as well as a re­design of the dou­ble loader bars. In ad­di­tion to be­ing stronger, the dou­ble loader bars are now 50% lighter over the pre­vi­ous de­sign, mak­ing them eas­ier to ma­noeu­vre into po­si­tion. Both fea­tures have been de­signed to as­sist with im­prov­ing work health & safety for op­er­a­tors. Max­iTRANS also re­leased to mar­ket its new pro­pri­etary tipper liner, named Landslide, which achieves a re­duc­tion in the re­quired tip an­gle by up to 30% when com­pared to an end tipper with no liner in­stalled. This re­duced tip height low­ers the trailer’s over­all cen­tre of grav­ity, of­fer­ing op­er­a­tors a safer and more sta­ble tip­ping plat­form. Safety is some­thing that we take very se­ri­ously at Max­iTRANS. In March, Max­iTRANS recorded the low­est ever amount of in­juries for the month on record, some­thing that we are ex­tremely proud of and rep­re­sents a sig­nif­i­cant step to­wards our goal of send­ing all of our peo­ple home safely ev­ery day. Although the fo­cus started with our in­ter­nal safety cul­ture, it also ex­tends to the devel­op­ment of new prod­ucts, with a num­ber of our new re­leases de­signed at im­prov­ing cus­tomer safety. This helps us to en­sure that not only our staff, but our cus­tomers can go home safely to their fam­i­lies. Fi­nally, March also wit­nessed the com­ple­tion of one of the largest or­ders of its kind in Aus­tralia, with the fi­nal of the 386 trail­ers or­dered for Coles Su­per­mar­kets com­pleted ahead of sched­ule. The ful­fil­ment of the Coles or­der high­lighted the Com­pany’s unique ca­pa­bil­ity and com­pe­tency to com­plete large or­ders. This led to a re­quire­ment for ad­di­tional staff and saw the cre­ation of more than 100 new jobs at the Com­pany. De­spite the com­ple­tion of this mile­stone or­der, Max­iTRANS is still very ac­tive with a pipe­line of or­ders be­ing re­ceived daily that is gen­er­at­ing fur­ther jobs growth. As a re­sult, we are fur­ther seek­ing to fill a large num­ber of po­si­tions at our Bal­larat man­u­fac­tur­ing site, some­thing that we are de­lighted to be able to of­fer.

Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor and Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer, Dean Jenkins.
