Bruce Rock Engineering set for huge 2016
- From the April 2016 issue.
2016 could be a pivotal year in the history of Western Australia’s Bruce Rock Engineering, with the company launching a powerful new service partnership and celebrating its east coast truck show premiere.
After repeatedly making transport industry headlines in 2015, it’s safe to say that the management team behind Bruce Rock Engineering (BRE) doesn’t go into business half-heartedly.
In July last year, the company teamed up with North American OEM Wabash National to bring a new line of refrigerated transport equipment to Australia, with a widely publicised launch at the Perth Truck Show that saw Larry Adkins, Product Application Manager at Wabash National, travel all the way to Australia to personally back up the jointly developed range.
In September, the company then gained more international attention when it released Australia’s first 60m Super Quad combination, boasting a record payload of 141 tonnes. Due to a new kind of drawbar design, it allowed transport businesses in WA to quickly change from a quad-trailer layout back to a conventional set up, and has now been developed into triple and double road train combinations to suit various tasks across the country.
Looking back, all signs point to what will be the company’s next big step in May 2016 – going national. As part of BRE’s first-ever east coast truck show outing at the International Truck, Trailer & Equipment Show (ITTES) in Melbourne, Managing Director, Damion Verhoogt, will announce a new service partnership with Royan Truck & Trailer Repairs, Australia’s largest heavy vehicle accident repair specialist.
