5 traditions helping make a ‘true blue’ trailer

Graham Lusty Trailers respectfully acknowledge the traditional Custodians of the land we work on. We extend respect to the Elders, past, present and emerging for they hold the memories, traditions, cultures and hopes of Australia’s First Peoples.

At Graham Lusty Trailers we are very proud of Australian background, so much so we incorporated the commonwealth star into our new logo and proudly display the Australian flag on the side of our trailers.

“I really wanted our customers to understand our passion for Australian manufacturing, and how we prioritise designing our trailers for the unique Australian conditions,” said CEO Graham Lusty.

Our trailers are built for Australian conditions, for long hauls and busy harvests. To be used on PBS specific routes, through states and territories across the country. We support Australian suppliers and manufacturers by choosing the best componentry to ensure GLT trailers can go the distance.

Built in South Brisbane, our trailers are built with local passionate hands, for very passionate drivers and owners.

We wanted to share a few factory traditions we think helps us make a real ‘true blue’ trailer.

  1. Aussie music playing in the factory.  At GLT we often have the radio playing in the factory and for some reason those Aussie hits always seem a little louder. It wouldn’t be unusual to hear someone belting out Great southern land or Tim (our workshop manager’s) favourite ‘You’re the voice’ by John Farnham  while walking through the factory.
  2. Icy Poles on hot days. The Queensland heat can be tough at times, so to help keep our teams cool, we often bring out the icy poles on a hot day. You are never too old for a good icy pole.
  3. Animal experiences. Just last week, our receptionist Linda, gently returned a lizard running around our office, to the outside garden. It wouldn’t be unusual for a huntsman to surprise the office team as well.
  4. Bunnings hat on our leaders. Have you met fit out team leader, Ben? Always out in the sun doing final checks on your trailers, he is often wearing a wide brimmed Bunnings hat. Slip, slop, slap!
  5. Monthly BBQ. Throw another snag on the barbie! We host a monthly outdoor barbeque. The office team cook burgers, and sausages to thank our production team for their quality work.
