Not being able to find a suitable solution to meet their requirements, Michael and Shaaron made a decision to build their own custom designed service truck.
Unique to the earthmoving industry at the time, the service truck was the first standardised and production based service truck in development. Clients soon identified the value of solutions our equipment brought to their operations, so the range quickly expanded, and the rest is as they say – history.
