MaxiTRANS celebrates 65-year milestone

  • Posted on Tuesday 15th, May 2018.

Trailer builder, MaxiTRANS, has commemorated the longest-running partnership in its Dealer Network – 65 years with Mildura Truck Centre (MTC).

According to MaxiTRANS, MTC began its operations in 1951 when Ken Leake put down a deposit of 10 pounds on Buronga Service Station; sitting on the border between Victoria and New South Wales. Two years later, on 11 May 1953, Leake signed his first dealership agreement with original equipment manufacturer, Freighter.

“As a family-owned business that has been around for generations, we have experienced substantial growth with the support of MaxiTRANS and this is testament to what makes a great working relationship,” said MTC Dealer Principal, Glenn Leake.

“This anniversary signifies more than half a century’s worth of experience,” said MaxiTRANS Managing Director and CEO, Dean Jenkins. “Our partnership has enjoyed a long and exciting history of ‘firsts’. MaxiTRANS is unwavering in its commitment to innovation to deliver safer and more reliable transport solutions. MTC play a key role in helping to deliver our products to the market, as well as servicing valued customers.”

MTC reportedly holds the dealership rights to the entire MaxiTRANS suite of brands including Freighter, Maxi-CUBE, Lusty EMS, Hamelex White, Azmeb and Peki.
