Vawdrey full tilt ahead

  • Posted on Tuesday 24th, March 2020.

With access to Australia’s largest network of trailer service and repair centres, Vawdrey Australia is helping owner drivers, heavy vehicle operators and fleet managers mitigate unnecessary downtime during this peak period. Vawdrey's team are also at the ready to render urgent assistance where and when needed.

The recent tax stimulus via the Federal Government has given fleets the financial injection they need to upgrade and purchase new equipment to remain competitive and active.

For business, the package includes increasing the instant asset write-off threshold from $30,000 to $150,000 and expanding access to include businesses with aggregated annual turnover of less than $500 million (up from $50 million) until 30 June 2020.

For transport operators the introduction of a time limited 15-month investment incentive until 30 June 2021 is aimed at supporting business investment and economic growth over the short term, by accelerating depreciation deductions.

Cash flow assistance will be provided by the Government for up to 70,000 businesses challenged by the economic impacts of the coronavirus and to help with employee retention.

This will include approximately 690,000 businesses employing 7.8 million people, with payments of between $2,000 and $25,000 to help pay wages or hire extra staff.

A prominent contributor to the industry for more than 46 years, Vawdrey Australia continues to bolster the nation's road transport industry with its portfolio of trailers which are built to exceptionally high standards and the ability to back them up with service and repairs to keep them operating.

Vawdrey Australia Director, Paul Vawdrey, said now is the time to step up and make a difference.

“Australia’s economy and lifestyle depends greatly on the health of our diverse communities and local manufacturing,” he said. "Businesses depend on efficient, sustainable road transport options when carting everything from heavy machinery, food stuffs, fresh produce and pharmaceuticals.

“As a specialist in the design and construction of PBS trailing equipment, backed by a solid repair and service network, Vawdrey has, time and time again, strengthened the transport capabilities of businesses to maximise payload gains and improve vehicle operator safety,” said Paul Vawdrey.

“We believe in supporting Australian production and manufacturing for a stronger future. Now is the time to ensure transport operators have reliable equipment that is serviced and repaired promptly to keep the deliveries moving. During these challenging times we can be relied upon to keep operators delivering the goods.”
