Aerotrans Australia P/L was formed in 1989 as a result of a successful ‘Management Buyout’ led by the current Managing Director. Initially Aerotrans started as a trading company, contracting out all its manufacturing, but within 12 months it had moved facilities and was producing polyurethane components for companies such as Holden Special Vehicles. This quickly led to taking over an additional facility, adding relevant expertise and producing all its own products ‘in-house.’
Aerotrans Australia, from the time it started its own production, manufactured it’s product to go directly from mould to application. By default this reality assisted Aerotrans to gain a strong reputation for the quality of its production that has led to it becoming a premium fibreglass component manufacturer.
This natural process also impacted on development, and being unable to gain the quality of moulds needed to replicate it’s product’s supreme finish, Aerotrans commenced the steep learning curve needed to achieve this ‘in-house.’
For nearly three decades Aerotrans Australia has become known for it’s high quality development and has been contracted by major corporations, such as Maxitrans Australia to produce production moulds for it’s own production.
While through recent years Aerotrans Australia’s focus has been the development of its proprietary brands, it has always had a percentage of business with high quality OEM’s that have received products with quality second to none, and in most cases have received a service quality that met or exceeded all expectations.
This consistentiy high production and service quality has enabled Aerotrans to win and retain OEM business with a number of companies, including but not limited to, Isuzu Trucks, Navistar (International Trucks), Maxitrans Corporation, Vawdrey Australia, Volgren Buses, Krueger, All Truck Bodies and Prestige Truck Bodies.
In the early years of manufacturing, various materials were used with great success, but consistent with it’s market focus, Aerotrans has eliminated all manufacturing processes except fiberglass. This focus has been extremely successful and the company today is skilled in ‘hand-lay,’ chopper gun production, and now also has regular production using Light RTM.
