Dandenong South VIC 3175
Established in 1974 by Mick Vawdrey, Vawdrey began building truck bodies for smaller companies and owner drivers. In 1975, Russell Baker joined Mick and the two formed a strong partnership that lasted until Russell s retirement in late 2006. The 1980s saw Vawdrey grow from strength to strength, becoming a supplier to multinational companies. Vawdrey used the fallout of the 1990s 'credit crunch' as an opportunity to employ smart management techniques that would prove crucial to the company's long term success. During that period, Mick's son, Paul, was enlisted as the company's Sales Manager and the company began to manufacture semi-trailers. Vawdrey's founding pillars were built on quality, innovation and dedication, qualities that continue to drive the company until today. "Australia challenges body builders like no other country on earth and if you take any short cuts in your building process, you'll be found wanting," says Paul Vawdrey. By 2001, Vawdrey moved into its current premises in Dandenong South, Victoria. The 6.5 hectare facility features a state-of-the-art manufacturing complex, spare parts, repairs, sales and administration areas. Over the next decade, Vawdrey continued its expansion, strengthening its presence in heavy-duty refrigeration markets in northern Queensland, Western Australia and South Australia. In 2006, Vawdrey would unveil the Iceliner refrigerated trailer. Today, the Vawdrey name is synonymous with high quality and durability. These principles form the foundation of every trailer the company builds using the most technology and equipment available. The company's manufacturing portfolio includes B-doubles, B-triples, buckleless curtainsiders, dog trailers, drop decks, dry freights, flat tops, mezzanine deck floors, refrigerated bodies, skels, tags, tri-axle trailers and swingliners. While Vawdrey manufactures in Victoria, it has also branched out its services to accommodate a range of transport industries interstate, with to the establishment of service facilities in New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia. As Australia's largest independent trailer builder, Vawdrey aims to consistently improve the standard of design and quality within the country's trailer building industry.

Volgren Australia Pty Ltd
Vision and an ability to think outside the square has always been a Grenda Corporation trademark. In the year 1977, Grenda used these skills to develop Volgren, a bus and coach body-manufacturing business. Today Volgren is Australia's largest bus and coach manufacturing business, and has expanded its business to include kits supply to the Asian market and other Australian states. In 1977, Volgren was initially licensed through Volvo, who held the rights to a Swiss aluminium body concept. In 1986, the Volvo license expired, allowing Volgren to deliver its unique aluminium body on any make of chassis. This strategic move gave Volgren the flexibility to grow and respond to customer demand for bodies built on a range of chassis, and become the platform for an outstanding success story. BENEFITS Volgren uses market-focused research and development to further its history of innovative, technologically advanced viable development. By engineering a product that takes 'whole of life' costing into account, the solution has obvious benefits to the customer. Using only the best materials, the body is founded on cutting edge technology that produces an integrally strong, inherently safe body, featuring high corrosion resistance and easy repairability. Volgren's aluminium extrusion body technique, joined by a system of bolt up gusseted joints, provides a world class body solution. Besides the benefits of reduced repair and maintenance, it gives the operator the ability to work the vehicle longer hours, as well as reducing their spare bus ratio. The Volgren concept facilitates the delivery of buses and coaches that are either fully built or in CKD (completely knocked down) kit format. The degree of local manufacturing and material sourcing can be tailored to suit individual customer requirements. COMMITMENT High demand for its product has seen Volgren's manufacturing capabilities rapidly expand in recent years. Large investments in Information Technology, factory floor space, plant, equipment and people has it well positioned to meet current and future requirements. Volgren produces a complete range of buses and coaches, including double and single deck city buses, school buses, touring coaches and other specialist vehicles

Weld Australia members are involved in almost every facet of Australian industry and make a significant contribution to the economy. Weld Australia is the Australian representative member of the International Institute of Welding (IIW). Mission Weld Australia's mission is to represent the interests of members and safeguard the public by ensuring the integrity of in-service welds, and to promote the use of best practice technology and quality systems. Weld Australia brings individual and company members together into a community to deliver: - A forum for the exchange of ideas and the sharing of resources - A voice to promote the interests of the welding community and shape the market for welding services - Specialist technical problem solving and a conduit between industry and research organisations - A pathway for learning and career development and the opportunity to benchmark against world's best practice Onshore Welding Weld Australia considers the current trend towards sending steel infrastructure projects overseas to be a significant threat to the future of welding in Australia. Without a base load of welding-reliant projects, the inflow of talented apprentices, engineers and scientists into the profession will dry up and fabrication companies will cease to exist. In turn, our strategically vital infrastructure companies in power, water, mining, oil & gas, road, rail and defence will have to rely on overseas expertise. Weld Australia is committed to ensuring all aspects of the welding profession in Australia are internationally competitive and that our companies are fairly treated in comparison with offshore competition.
