Alltruck wins Victorian manufacturing award

Alltruck couldn’t be prouder of their achievement and say that the award is really just a culmination of all the hard work they have put in since starting back in 1991.
When Tony Romano and George Mitrousis decided to start Alltruck Bodies sixteen years ago, they had the aim of providing a full range of quality bodies to the rigid truck market in South Eastern Australia.
Between them they had more than 45 years experience in the industry and have turned a small operation in a leased 700m2 premises, into an efficient and major operation that employs more than 80 people.

Building everything from curtainsiders, FRP vans, dry freight vans, trays and refrigerated vans, business is booming for Alltruck.

“When we first started we felt that there was an opportunity to provide the market with a better quality product. Now I think we offer a more responsive service and a better quality and innovative product,” said Alltruck Bodies General Manager, Russell Gordon.

It is all this and more that led to them winning The Age/D&B Victorian Business Award for manufacturing. Businesses are invited to take part based on the strength of their financial profile in the D&B database and a range of other criteria, including research and development, financial stability and employment growth.

Operating on an exclusive invitation only basis, the awards are given in six categories: manufacturing, country/rural, building and allied services, retailing, information technology and exporter/wholesaler. Alltruck’s sales have increased by 23 per cent in the past three years, while over the same period their workforce has grown by 30 per cent.

Placing an emphasis on research and development, as well as skills training, Alltruck have a long-standing relationship with Kangan Batman TAFE to train apprentices in-house.
“There is a constant shortage of skilled labour in Australia and an ever present threat of imports from Asia, so working to train our own apprentices helps us to keep our skills up to date and to plan for the future,” explains Russell.

“We have been working with Kangan now for the past five or six years and at any time we can have between 12 and 15 apprentices training in our facility.” Russell added that all the staff at Alltruck were excited to hear that they had won the award. “Winning The Age/D&B Victorian Business Award for manufacturing has definitely put us on another playing field. It is recognition of all the hard work we have put in over the years and proof that Alltruck build a superior quality body.”

“It was also a really good validation for all our staff because they know that they are working for a financially stable, well recognised builder,” he said. The future is bright for Alltruck, with a few major initiatives to be announced in the coming months.
