This year is special for the Australian Trucking industry, as well as the roll out of the first National Heavy Vehicle Regulator, two of Australia’s premier truck brands are celebrating significant milestones.
This year iconic brands Mack Trucks and Western Star are preparing to give fans memorable displays at the Brisbane Truck Show held on May 16-19 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre (BCEC).
“Mack trucks will be very focussed on the celebration of 50 years of local production of Australia’s premiere truck brand,” says Mack Brand Manager Clare Simmons.
“We will be looking back at the history and all the things that make up the special DNA of the Mack brand in Australia and why the bulldog has become a beloved icon to so many in the industry.”
She says Mack will not only be reflecting on the past but will “also look forward to new technologies and innovations within the product and the services offered to customers.”
“There will also be a special product display and or course the ever popular Mack Merchandise and fashion parades,” she says.
Western Star has been in Australia for 30 years and they are definitely celebrating the achievement.
“Twenty-thirteen is a historic year for Western Star as we celebrate our 30 year anniversary of doing business in Australia,” says Western Star General Manager Marketing, Don Hanson.
“Western Star Trucks Australia and the dealer group are proud of the milestone and we look forward to the year ahead and the release of our new products and the roll-out of the communications program,” he says.
Western Star always brings excitement to the table when they prepare for the Brisbane Truck Show.
They are tight lipped at the moment about what they have in store but history says Western Star will bring in a truck that will excite the crowd. The last Brisbane truck Show the RM Williams Western Star took centre stage on the Western Star stand and literally was a people magnet. This year...well you’ll just have to come and see for yourself...
