Milestone 200th Kenworth is an ode to company’s proud family history

Named ‘Remember When’, Emerald Carrying Company’s 200th Kenworth – a striking new Kenworth Legend SAR – pays tribute to the successful family owned and operated business, that’s now in its third generation.

Started close to 60 years ago by Bill and Joan Haylock, Emerald Carrying is now run by their son, managing director Greg Haylock. And he is joined by his children Matt Haylock (group general freight/fleet manager); Ben Haylock (group operations manager); and Taylor Haylock (contracts and treasury coordinator).

When it came to ordering the company’s 200th Kenworth, Matt says the family wanted it to be something special, so the Legend SAR fit the bill perfectly.

Based at the company’s Brisbane depot, the truck is being used to deliver general freight up to Emerald – with long-time company driver Steven Cullen lucky enough to get the keys to this new beauty. He’s been with the company for about 20 years.

The new truck was delivered at the start of November and already has over 40,000 kilometres on the clock.
