Melbourne-based truck body and trailer builder, YLZ Truck Bodies, serves as a prime example of how making the right choices in products and partners can make a difference.
YLZ’s growth is nothing short of impressive, evolving from building a handful of truck and trailer bodies in its initial years to producing close to 70 per year in the present day.
YLZ Truck Bodies Sales Manager, Kyle Doswell, attributes this success to the company’s commitment to reliability.
“Reliability means everything, it plays a big part in what we do,” he says.
The key to YLZ’s growth lies not just in what the company manufactures, but in the reliability of the products and suppliers it chooses.
A crucial component in YLZ’s success story is the use of quality Binotto hoists, supplied and supported by truck and trailer hydraulics experts, Transport Engineering Solutions (TES). Binotto’s exclusive B3 technology cushions the transition between stages and at full extension and plays a pivotal role in the success of YLZ’s combinations.
“The B3 technology is a point of difference that you can really see in practice in bigger builds,” Kyle says. “Especially when you push up to a five-axle, it does come into play.”
Kyle says the hoist has proven to be a very durable option in the market.
“If I put a Binotto product on a truck, I’m 99 per cent sure I am not going to have a hoist issue,” he says – adding that this level of confidence is invaluable for YLZ and its customers, allowing them to concentrate on their operations without wasting time or money dealing with faults. Choosing a supplier with a high level of technical knowledge and customer support that can be trusted is also important to success in the truck and trailer building industry.
“I’m busy enough as it is, the less I have to do the better and TES are quite good at that,” Kyle says. “If there are any issues, they’re quite good at handling it all without me getting too involved so I can concentrate on what I should be doing.”
In the competitive landscape of truck and trailer manufacturing, the success of businesses underscores the importance of making sound choices.
Reliability in products and suppliers is not just a preference, it is a necessity for sustainable growth.
“The quality that TES sell is quite good, and the service they provide matches the quality of their product,” Kyle says. “I couldn’t be happier dealing with them.”
In an industry where getting it right the first time matters, choosing the right partners and products is essential.
