Trailer manufacturer reveals plans to showcase a wider selection of its brands and products at 2023 show
The Drake Group will celebrate 65 years of operation next year, so expect a great showing from the trailer juggernaut at the 2023 Truck Show.
But it’s the prospect of getting back to normal for the upcoming show that excites the company most.
“Although the last Truck Show was a huge success, there were still a lot of customers and suppliers missing. It will be great to get back to normal and catch up again,” Drake Group Marketing and Events Coordinator Peta Albion says.
The Drake Group, which comprises Drake Trailers, O’Phee Trailers, Drake Collectibles, and Dalzell and Bagley Engineering, will make room for a wider selection of its brands and products in its new consolidated space, made possible by the ever-popular diecast models headlining the show’s new Merchandise Alley.
“We’re going to have around seven trailers on display so we’re hoping to put on a good show for everyone,” Drake Trailers Sales Manager
Byron Foss adds. “Now we have a bit more space, we will have a good mix of Drake and O’Phee equipment on display, so we’re very excited about the upcoming Truck Show.”
Led by John Drake, this proud family operation has built a rock-solid reputation as one of the best in the business.
According to Foss, work has never been busier.
“I’ve been at Drake for 10 years and I’ve never seen it this busy,” he says.
“Obviously, it’s currently busy, but will be busy into the future as orders are still coming in, so that’s really exciting for the business and our employees.
“We love getting those phone calls from new customers who come to us without speaking to anyone else because of our reputation and we strive to keep that reputation that we’ve worked hard for.”
Drake has been based out of its purpose-built manufacturing facility in Wacol, Queensland since 1992.
