In November 2019, he 1,000th Tilt Tray that we have built has left our workshops. The FVY Isuzu is for Thiess and was sold by Crokers Truck Centre in Mackay. Quite apt, as back in 2001 we built 4 Tilt Trays on FRR 500 Isuzu’s for Millen’s Hire sold to them by Crokers, which was the first time we built numerous bodies for one customer.

Achieving this mile stone is a good opportunity for a bit of reflection. Even though South East Queensland Tilt Tray has been in business since 1996, it wasn’t until the late 90’s that we really concentrated on building Tilt Tray’s , before that we would do as much general body building work, (chassis extension’s, body fitting, etc) as build tilt trays.

We are a family owned and run business, with both myself (Cam) and my wife Amanda actively involved. I’ve looked after the workshop side of it, and Amanda along with looking after the accounting, was instrumental in getting SEQTT Quality Assured along with the other administrative tasks.

We’ve got a great crew working for us, headed up by Matt and his off sider Chris. I think it is a great sign that we have numerous employees that have worked for us for well over 10 years, and we have also managed to put a lot of people through apprenticeships, male and female, over the years. Over the years we have also developed some great relationships with most of our suppliers. Shephard Transport Equipment, Winch Industries and PTE hydraulic cylinders have supplied us with top quality equipment from the start, and all share the same business ethics as ourselves and stand behind their products. Out of the 1,000 tilt trays, Hawkins Truck Refinishers have painted over 600 of them too, and the trucks leave here looking spot on.

I’d need a few pages to name everyone we have been involved with over the years, suffice to say we have a lot of loyal customers, good suppliers and great employee’s. Thank’s to everyone involved in us getting to 1,000 tilt trays.
