GRATERGATE SWINGS INTO ACTION

Always on the hunt for new concepts to improve operational efficiencies and work health & safety (WHS) outcomes for its clients, Alltruck Bodies has just announced a new style of gate system for rigid truck bodies known as GRATERgate.

“We felt there was a gap in the pallet pick-up and delivery rigid body market for a gate system that is easy to open and is also load rated,” Tony explains. “So we developed GRATERgate to meet this criteria.”

Alltruck Bodies’ GRATERgate system has been specifically developed to enable quicker, safer and easier loading and unloading of pallets.

WHERE QUALITY IS NEVER COMPROMISED

Since then the business has grown exponentially and a second facility has opened at Archerfield in Brisbane. His vision from the outset has always been to deliver quality equipment.

“Our motto ‘Where quality is never compromised’ is the foundation on which we have built our business,” Tony says.
