South East Queensland Tilt Tray builds our first Tilt Tray on a Toyota Dyna. This truck is still going strong today, 21 years later, having spent most of its working life in the harsh conditions of the Camooweal and Mt Isa area.


In 2005 South East Queensland Tilt Tray moved to our current location at 41 Colebard St West Acacia Ridge. This workshop is 1250M/2 and has two 5 tonne gantry cranes. With the larger building, by 2006 we are building over 70 Tilt Trays a year, and in 2008 we built 96 Tilt Trays, the most we have built in a year, with 20 staff in the workshop and 5 in the office.



South East Queensland Tilt Tray moves from a small single bay shed at Sherwood to a 100M/2 workshop at Rocklea. At this time we are building around 10 Tilt Trays a year and a small staff of only two.


In July 2010, we achieved a milestone by completing our 500th Tilt Tray. The Tilt Tray was built on a DAF CF85 8X4 chassis which had been modified to include a lift up lazy axle making it a 10X4. The Tray is 10.2m long, and has a carrying capacity of 15 tonnes. The unit was built for Andrew Price, who all ready has two other trucks fitted with Strongback Tilt trays by South East Queensland Tilt Tray, another DAF with a 10.2m tray, and a Mack with a 7.8m tray. South East Queensland Tilt Tray manager, Matt McCormack worked with Andrew to come up with a maximum length tray, with an excellent carrying capacity.


In 1999 South East Queensland Tilt Tray moved to a larger workshop in Andrew St Rocklea, consisting of one 150M/2 building. We now have three full time staff and can build 2 trucks side by side in this shed, and are building around 25 Tilt Trays a year.



In 2013 South East Queensland Tilt Tray expanded into the building next door (on the right of the photo), giving us over 2500M/2 undercover.


South East Queensland Tilt Tray moves to a larger 400M/2 workshop at the same address in Andrew St Rocklea as well continuing to occupy the smaller building. Our staff is now up to five in the workshop and two in the office, we can work on up to six trucks at a time in these buildings and as well as building Tilt Trays we also do quite a lot of Chassis extensions and similar work. We are building around 35 Tilt Trays a year.


As of the begining of 2018, South East Queensland Tilt Tray has built over 870 Tilt Tray bodies and numerous Trailers. We have a full time staff of 15 in the workshop and 5 in the office. We build between 70 and 80 Tilt Trays a year.
