New Victorian Service Strategy

New Victorian Service Strategy for Graham Lusty Trailers

We are refining our after sales service for Victorian and southern New South Wales customers.

‘The one facility in Campbellfield is currently underutilised by our customers who are geographically spread far and wide around Victoria and southern NSW’, says James Yerbury, Managing Director of GLT. ‘We have listened to our customers and created a flexible way to service their needs’.

The new service strategy involves a network of GLT approved workshops located nearer to customer’s operational areas.  Backing up this network will be a highly experienced GLT mobile field technician who will handle any specialised repairs and facilitate all general repairs through the workshop network.

This new strategy will begin to roll out through April as the Campbellfield facility is taken offline.

‘The Campbellfield facility was originally set up 4 years ago to manufacture new trailers.  We have found that customers were depending on the facility more for servicing and maintenance’, says Graham Lusty, CEO of GLT.

With Campbellfield handling more after sales support, GLT responded by increasing production output from their Brisbane facilities. ‘We have a very skilled team here at Brisbane which allows us to maintain high levels of build quality while increasing output’, says Graham Lusty. ‘The new service network will be more effective and efficient at handling GLT customers’ needs then one single location within Melbourne’.

For all servicing and maintenance enquires please contact the team on 1300 731 442.

Updated Side Tipper Design

MGM Bulk have just received a special fleet of Side Tippers. These tippers have two key design changes.

The first change is the new style door seal that uses flexible spring steel.

This new seal design replaces our previous rubber seal.  The spring steel is extremely tough, leak proof and easy to replace.

The other design change has been to remove the lower extruded curve on the passenger side and replacing it with pressed side sheets. This has decreased the body weight by around 80kgs.

Just like our pressed side end tippers, we weld on a small extrusion for mounting the side lights.

These trailers have been set up with air trigger lines for cabin controlled tipping.  We have sourced these nice couplings from the US to handle the multiple lines.
