Truck trailer manufacturer and supplier, MaxiTRANS, will celebrate a milestone ahead of the 2023 show

Underscoring its deep heritage, Australia’s largest truck trailer manufacturer MaxiTRANS will continue celebrating major anniversaries across its suite of iconic trailer brands in the lead up to the 2023 Brisbane Truck Show.

At the last show, its Freighter marque commemorated 75 years as Australia’s preeminent trailer brand, a milestone reflected in the company’s display featuring a highly engaging walk through time showing how far the transport industry has come over three-quarters of a century.

This year, it’s the trailer manufacturer’s refrigerated and dry freight solutions brand Maxi-CUBE’s turn to celebrate reaching a significant milestone, with 2022 marking 50 years since the brand came into existence.

Maxi-CUBE is the third MaxiTRANS brand to reach a milestone in as many years, with Hamelex White notching up 25 years in 2020.

To have multiple brands reach milestones over the past few years is testament to the strength of its portfolio – and industry support for locally made products. An achievement worth celebrating at the industry’s largest event.

MaxiTRANS is the largest supplier of locally manufactured, heavy-duty road transport trailer solutions in Australia, through leading brands Freighter, Maxi-CUBE, Lusty EMS, Hamelex White, Trout River and AZMEB.

In 2021 MaxiTRANS was acquired by Australian Trailer Solutions Group (ATSG), comprising a group of private Australian investors, including a number of Ballarat locals, who are all committed to supporting Australian manufacturing. Under its new ownership, MaxiTRANS is committed to delivering high-quality Australian-made products, with a far reaching network of after-market service and support.

A long-term supporter of the Brisbane Truck Show, its 2023 display will showcase the range of brands and depth of products available under the MaxiTRANS banner.

“We are excited to once again be a part of this great industry event and showcase our diverse product portfolio, and the complete end-to-end solution provided to our customers, at the 2023 Brisbane Truck Show.

“It also allows our industry to come together and celebrate, highlighting the importance of our local industry and the vital role we all play in delivering the needs of our nation,” Marketing and Communications Manager Rick Challons says.
