Long-time Mackay business shuts down transport division


Mackay-based M&P Services has announced plans to cease its general transport operations and place all its focus on the Transportable Building (Manufacture, Hire & Sales) division.

The last day of operation for the transport and logistics division is June 15.

Director Max Lamb Jnr. said it was a regrettable decision but with 80 per cent of the company turnover coming from the transportable building division, it was the right way forward.

“We are a long established, locally owned business with a growing market share in the manufacture of transportable buildings, being the largest manufacturer of portable buildings in the Central and North Queensland,” said Lamb Jnr.

“The closure of our transport division will provide us with a significant expansion of product capability and capacity in the sale and hire of transportable buildings.”

He added that the focus on the manufacturing division will provide increased value for customers as M&P  continue to seek more innovative, cost-competitive and compelling solutions to match customer needs.

“For all our long standing transport clients we would like to take this opportunity to thank them for placing their trust and confidence in our ability to transport their freight and we will endeavour to work with them to facilitate a move to an alternate transport supplier.”

Lamb Jr. said that M&P Services, which is celebrating its 35th anniversary in 2021, is excited for the future growth opportunities that this change will bring and is looking forward to continuing to provide high quality transportable solutions and mobile crib rooms.

With the added benefit of more production space, including plans for modernising existing facilities, M&P Services said it is also on the lookout for talented employees to join the team.
