CIMC Vehicle Australia continues its expansion


CIMC Vehicle Australia has recently expanded its Australian operations into Queensland. The new venture sees it based in Wacol, one of Brisbane’s busy transport hubs. CIMC sees Queensland as an important part of the Australian transport industry with many transport companies based in the sunshine state.

The new Queensland CIMC premises offers everything from new trailers sales of the CIMC Trailer and Marshall Lethlean Tanker products, to carrying out servicing and repairs. Stock trailers are also kept on hand for immediate sale.

This is in addition to the Victorian CIMC headquarters, based in Melbourne’s East, which sits at a purpose-built facility on a 51,000m² site, incorporating a 13,000m² undercover factory, offering production capacity for Semi-Trailers and Tankers with a CNC cutter, welding machines and start-of-the-art heated paint shop; along with trailer repairs, servicing, modifications, refurbishment and insurance work.

This is further supported by two dealerships in Sydney, proudly owned and run by JRB Diesel; as well as in Perth, via General Transport Equipment (GTE), which is owned by CIMC. Each of these facilities offer sales and support.

Since late 2016, CIMC has restructured with new management and a new direction to product standardisation and improvements. The main focus by the new management team is to strengthen the product range to be in line with market trend and demand.

The product range consists of flat decks, drop decks, skels, curtainsiders and refrigerated vans; along with dry and liquid tankers by Marshall Leathlean; and various other semi-trailer models by GTE.

CIMC’s ability to keep various trailer models in stock reduces the long lead times that are normally associated with trailer purchases. Purpose built, custom orders are also welcome, incorporating new designs as well as offering different options such as suspensions, load restraints, paint schemes, etc.

With payloads ever increasing and required, PBS (Performance Based Standards) is also offered with the various CIMC trailer models, thus increasing productivity through clever and innovative trailer designs. Each trailer is designed and engineered in Australia to handle Australia’s unique operating conditions and meet all Australian Design Rules.

CIMC Trailers come with many industry standard items such as Jost landing legs, Fuwa K-Hitch suspensions and LED lighting, together with standard frame inclusions such as three-way container twistlocks, roadtrain brackets and services and side loader pads.

CIMC has a long-term commitment to Australia by investing in infrastructure to provide high quality products, support and service. This is backed up with a comprehensive parts store stocking genuine CIMC parts and additional OEM sourced items.

With a new website recently launched, CIMC is cementing its spot as a preferred semi-trailer supplier in Australia.
