Hamelex White turns 20
- From the May 2015 issue.
Twenty years ago, two ambitious transport entrepreneurs started their own trailer building business. Their goal: to manufacture reliable and innovative trailers. Today, Hamelex White is a tipper powerhouse, boasting a nationwide network and hundreds of customers that purchase its equipment annually.
3 April 1995 marked the first time Hamelex White opened its doors in Hallam, a suburb in Victoria’s southeast. Hamelex White, whose name was derived from its two co-founders, Martin Hammel and Garry White, immediately set its sights on becoming a premier manufacturer of tipper trailers.
Fast-forward to today and Hamelex White is celebrating 20 years of operation in Australia’s competitive trailer market. It has also undergone a number of changes. Hamelex White is now owned by publicly listed trailer producer, MaxiTRANS, while its trailers are manufactured in a larger, state-of-the-art facility in the Victorian regional town of Ballarat, which it relocated to in 2011.
“From the beginning, our goal has been to provide Australia’s commercial road transport industry with a reliable, competitively priced product that is backed by unparalleled customer support and service,” says General Manager, Craig Wallace. “We attribute Hamelex White’s success over the past 20 years to the simple company principles of combining innovation with payload, capacity and durability, while offering unmatched parts and service support around the country, no matter where the trailer finds itself.”
