“One of our key priorities is to make sure that we are spending time with our customers to truly understand their business needs. It’s important that we listen to our customers to come up with the best possible solution for them.

“In line with this, we will see a return of a popular inclusion to the MaxiTRANS display with specialists in Performance-Based Standards (PBS) available on the stand during the show.”

Mansfield says the 2023 show is a particularly special event for the company as it is the first since the business was purchased by Australian Trailer Solutions Group (ATSG).

Previously an ASX-listed company, in September 2021 the MaxiTRANS trailer business was acquired by ATSG, comprising a group of private investors, including a number of Ballarat locals.

This week it revealed that European trailer giant Schmitz Cargobull has become a minority investor in the business, buying a 26 per cent shareholding in ATSG.

Executive Chairman Greg L’Estrange says the partnership will allow MaxiTRANS to partner on technology, scalability and processes that can be implemented in the operation.

“Schmitz Cargobull has a great reputation for high-quality, innovative design and durability across its expansive product offering.

“To have a company with such an international reputation see value in our plans for the MaxiTRANS business is testament to our people and the on-going support of our customers who have helped continue to build the business since ATSG came onboard,” he says.

“The backing of Schmitz Cargobull, coupled with our own investment into the business, will allow us to streamline our processes, deliver global supply chain benefits and allow MaxiTRANS to continue to focus on delivering outstanding quality and support for our customers.

“In addition, it provides access to worldwide trends and technology that we can utilise and leverage in the Australian market,” he adds.
