Byford seeks new PBS challenges

  • Posted on Friday 5th, August 2016.

Moama-based OEM, Byford Equipment, has made a bold push to increase its Performance-Based Standards (PBS) offering by challenging Australia’s transport industry to bring forth new ideas to its manufacturing table.

“We’ve already set the bar high in terms of our PBS-approved tankers, but there’s certainly potential to develop more innovative concepts in that field,” said Gary Byford, Managing Director.

According to Byford, the company is now offering PBS in other trailer designs, including tippers, skels and flat tops as part of an expanded portfolio and has called for expressions of interest from prospective clients.

“Byford Equipment has embraced the PBS scheme since day one, pushing the boundaries of innovation and staying 100 per cent committed to helping our customers boost productivity, improve efficiencies and gain the best access required to run PBS vehicles on specified routes,” Byford stated.

“Our business model has always centred on generating growth throughout the transport industry and helping our customers get the most out of their equipment, and that includes all trailer models, not just tankers.”

In recent years, Byford has maintained a strong market presence in the PBS space, where the brand has introduced a number of new and innovative tanker designs, including PBS-approved 20 and 21m B-doubles, 20m and 21.6m AB-doubles, and 26m A-double combinations.

The company is now looking to continue that growth spurt. “These PBS designs are proof that Byford Equipment is capable of manufacturing any configuration that aligns with our customers requests,” said Chris Nisbet, Compliance Officer. “We relish the manufacturing challenges that come with building PBS applications.

“Byford isn’t just a tanker-focused brand, but an industry leader especially when it comes to designing Australian-built and certified trailers.”
