MaxiTRANS is today celebrating 65 commendable years in partnership with Mildura Truck Centre (MTC), a successful and significant milestone for the industry.
MTC began its operations in 1951 when Ken Leake put down a deposit of 10 pounds on the humble bricks and mortar of Buronga Service Station; sitting on the border between Victoria and New South Wales. Two years later, on the 11th May 1953, Ken signed his first dealership agreement with Freighter trailers.
MTC is the oldest dealer relationship in the entire MaxiTRANS Dealer Network, a proud achievement for both parties. Twenty years is considered a big deal in OE/Dealership relationships but today these two Companies have reached a significant milestone of 65 years in strategic partnership. Now that is worth celebrating.
Glenn Leake, MTC Dealer Principal, says “As a family-owned business that has been around for generations, we have experienced substantial growth with the support of MaxiTRANS and this is testament to what makes a great working relationship.”
The relationship has been forged by a myriad of positive networks and collaborations between the two Companies. Over the years both have witnessed significant changes, growth and success.
Dean Jenkins, Managing Director and CEO of MaxiTRANS, says “This anniversary signifies more than half a century’s worth of experience. Our partnership has enjoyed a long and exciting history of “firsts”. MaxiTRANS is unwavering in its commitment to innovation to deliver safer and more reliable transport solutions. MTC play a key role in helping to deliver our products to the market, as well as servicing valued customers.
Going from strength to strength, MTC now holds the dealership rights to all MaxiTRANS suite of brands including Freighter, Maxi-CUBE, Lusty EMS, Hamelex White, AZMEB and PEKI.
The future certainly looks bright as the partnership continues its evolution and pursuit of new opportunities within the transport industry.
