Kenworth DAF Adelaide > Barker Trailers
Barker Trailers have recently joined forces with the highly regarded CMV Group.
CMV Truck Sales, Kenworth DAF Adelaide, is now home to Barker Trailers for the South Australia region. Both CMV and Barker Trailers are providers of quality products, we put our customer requirements first and we are both proudly Australian family owned.
With CMV having one of the best parts and service facilities in South Australia it was an easy decision to move our South Australian office into their facility Barker Trailers believes finding suitable partners is pivotal to its continued growth over the coming years and is excited by the prospect of working with a professional organisation like CMV.
Jonathan Crawford, Operations Manager at CMV agrees, "We all know the transport industry is a tight business. We’re all looking for efficiency gains, so it makes sense that we save a customer driving all over town by offering everything they need here. We also have many mutual customers, so it’s going to be convenient for them."
About Barker Trailers
Established in Woodend in 1974, Barker Trailers now manufactures from two Victorian plants in Woodend and Maryborough, with total factory size of over 30,000 square metres.
The trailers are designed with working drawings produced at Woodend. Trailer frames are built “from the ground up” by our team of highly skilled boiler makers and welders. Once this stage is completed, the frames are grit blasted and painted – ready for fit out and delivery to the customer.
Barker Trailers employs around 200 people, with close to 25 apprentices employed at any one time. Around 7-8 apprentices are brought on board each year as Barker is proudly an active participant in apprenticeship training schemes.
A well-structured team approach is the key to Barker Trailer’s quality. Years of experience and know-how alongside quality systems that check each stage of a trailer’s manufacture from the drawing board to pre- delivery ensure a quality product every time.
Ultimately, it is the client who assesses the quality of products and services and demonstrates their satisfaction with repeat business. We are proud to have a long list of loyal repeat clients since we were established.
