MaxiTRANS has today announced it is committed to creating a stable and secure workforce, providing almost 60 casuals with permanent roles within the business since it was acquired by new owners ATSG. Highlighting the Company’s ongoing commitment to regional manufacturing jobs.

In September 2021, MaxiTRANS was acquired by Australian Trailer Solutions Group, (ATSG). ATSG bring a commitment to regional manufacturing jobs, and comprise a group of private Australian investors, including a number of Ballarat locals. This latest announcement demonstrates its commitment to manufacturing locally made trailer solutions and bolstering employment in regional communities.

“We understand that MaxiTRANS has had a poor reputation for looking after its people in the past, said Greg L’Estrange, MaxiTRANS Executive Chairman. Our plan under new ownership is to continue to invest in our people to create a happy, stable and vibrant workplace. After all, it is our people that are vital to manufacturing, delivering and supporting our market leading products for our customers.

“Since taking over the business, we are proud to have moved almost 60 casuals into permanent employment across our manufacturing sites in Ballarat, Victoria and Carole Park. Brisbane, providing certainty about their positions with MaxiTRANS."

“MaxiTRANS is also investing in Cert III and IV training programs within our business of which we have already seen the expression of interest far exceed our expectations. It is about creating a stable environment and providing opportunities to further their skills while working.”
