Holmwood Highgate confident of big truck trailer show

30 Dec, 2022

Leading bulk liquid tanker manufacturer Holmwood Highgate is confident of a big 2023 Brisbane Truck Show to showcase its premium products

Brisbane-based manufacturer Holmwood Highgate, which builds premium liquid tankers out of its Brisbane and Melbourne facilities, says the event is a key marketing platform for its products, which now include a dry bulk tanker option unveiled recently.

“We are looking for record attendance levels and the opportunity to showcase our product to a greater audience than ever before,” Holmwood Highgate Marketing Manager Tom McKellar says.

“The event is always key for us to display our capability on a very broad and open platform.”

Despite the industry facing supply chain issues and labour force shortages, Holmwood Highgate believes things could be worse.

“(We are) busy and booming,” McKellar says.

“Logistics and freight has never been in such high demand in Australia.

“We relish the opportunity and the challenge it presents to keep up with demand and will continue to do all we can to meet it.”

All suppliers are in the same boat, he adds.

“The issue is definitely on a global scale as demand has skyrocketed whilst labour forces and materials are becoming more and more scarce.

“Key personal is becoming more and more critical as time goes on. Though we are feeling the pinch, we are doing everything we can to stay ahead and do what we can to maintain a skilled workforce and meet critical dates,” he says.

The family-owned business employs more than 200 staff across its Queensland and Victorian locations, with its bread-and-butter fuel tankers, as well as bitumen, tallows, waste and oils, aviation and military refuelling applications.
