Alltruck takes out back to back manufacturing awards

Victorian manufacturer, Alltruck Bodies, has been awarded the prestigious The Age/D&B Victorian Business Award for manufacturing two years running. The company, which has been operating since 1991, is extremely proud of this recognition but isn’t taking its eye off its main goal: continually growing the business.
Started by Tony Romano and George Mitrousis, Alltruck Bodies was created with the aim of providing a full range of quality bodies to the rigid truck market.
With more than 45 years’ experience in the industry between them, they created a range that includes everything from curtainsiders to FRP vans, dry freight vans, trays and refrigerated vans – and that range continues to increase year after year.

Alltruck currently employs 94 people and the number of truck bodies coming off the assembly line in the past year increased from 1,200 to 1,400, all of which played a major part in them winning consecutive The Age/D&B Victorian Business Awards for manufacturing. Businesses are invited to take part in the Awards 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 cover six categories: manufacturing; country/rural; building and allied services; retailing; information technology; and exporter/wholesaler. Alltruck Bodies General Manager, Russell Gordon, says that while he was surprised to win the award again, it is a huge honour.

“We were nominated again in September last year and won the award in November. Winning it once was great, but to win it back to back is terrific recognition,” he says.

“We believe it shows that the company is being managed well and is growing. In total, there are 26,000 manufacturing businesses in Victoria and so to come out on top is just amazing. It really
highlights the hard work and effort that all our staff have put in to growing the business.”

To help accommodate the strong growth that Alltruck has been experiencing, the company has expanded its facility to include an extra 3,000 square metres of additional manufacturing space – representing an increase of 50 per cent.

The new facility will house the company’s finishing area and will also feature quality control bays and a dedicated area for repairs.

“Our repairs division is steadily increasing and we want to take it to the next level, so this new facility will allow us to increase the number of repairs we undertake and improve customer satisfaction and responsiveness,” Russell says, before adding that Alltruck has also secured further land to ensure that future growth will be easily catered for.
