The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2019-04-03T06:24:36Z MEDIA ALERT: Camp Quality Convoy – Trucks & Motorbikes on the road for children’s cancer 2019-04-03T06:24:36Z media-alert-camp-quality-convoy-trucks-motorbikes-on-the-road-for-childrens-cancer Media invite and alert: Camp Quality Convoy Victoria – Trucks & motorbikes on the road for children’s cancer When: Sunday, April 7 from 9.30am – 3.00pm Where: Avalon Airport and throughout Geelong Why/Who: Truckies & Bikies travelling in Convoy to raise money for Camp Quality – followed by a “Show n Shine” competition and family fun day at Avalon airport Dozens of trucks and motorbikes will convoy along Geelong streets and highways this SUNDAY, raising money for children’s charity, Camp Quality. The event is sponsored by Viva Energy and Truckline. For Truckline’s Territory Business Manager (VIC/TAS) Casey Stewart, this event holds special meaning for her and her family, after sadly losing her niece to childhood cancer at just five years of age. “I’m proud that Truckline is continuing their support of and involvement in this event and to see it back again after a hugely successful 2017 Convoy. It was a terrible tragedy for my family when we lost my niece, so I’m keen to do anything I can to support other families living with cancer,” Casey said. “Camp Quality is an incredible organisation that does so much for children growing up with cancer and their families. The programs and services offered to these children and their parents and siblings have a lasting impact and are such a great help through such a difficult time.” Camp Quality State Manager for Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia, Kendra Overall said the event will help the charity continue to support families affected by childhood cancer. “All the funds raised by the truck drivers, the motorbike riders and the community at large supports Victorian kids to help children 0-13 deal with their own diagnosis, or the diagnosis of someone they love, like a brother, sister, mum or dad. We are there for them through the daily ups and downs of cancer. We create opportunities for the kids to be kids again: in-hospital, at home, at school and away from it all,” Kendra said. The Convoy will start from Avalon Airport at 9.30am on April 7, arriving back at the airport around midday where the Show and Shine and a range of family-friendly events will take place, including face painting for the kids, courtesy of sponsor Truckline. The day will conclude at 3pm. Interviews on the day are available with Camp Quality’s Kendra Overall and Truckline’s Casey Stewart. They will also be your contact points on the day.

We're reaching out to you today to see if you can help us generate interest for a very valuable children's charity... Camp Quality. This will be of particular relevance to listeners who are truck drivers and motocycle enthusiasts. Camp Quality is once again hosting its Camp Quality Convoy Victoria, bringing together truckies and bikies to raise much funds to help children and families touched by cancer, and creating a great family fun day in the process. Can you help us spread the word and generate some registrations amongst drivers and motorcyclists?

The Camp Quality Convoy Victoria will hit the road again on Sunday 7 April after a year off, with dozens of trucks and motorbikes expected to join the fun at Avalon Airport. Australia’s leading provider of aftermarket truck and trailer parts, Truckline has announced it will continue its generous support of the event and is also entering a special guest in the Convoy. The new International Pro-star demonstration truck will take a break from its tour around Victoria to feature in the day’s activities and is expected to draw a lot of interest from truck enthusiasts. For Truckline’s Territory Business Manager (VIC/TAS) Casey Stewart, this event holds special meaning for her and her family, after sadly losing her niece to childhood cancer at just five years of age. “I’m proud that Truckline is continuing their support of and involvement in this event and to see it back again after a hugely successful 2017 Convoy.

The programs and services offered to these children and their parents and siblings have a lasting impact and are such a great help through such a difficult time.” Camp Quality State Manager for Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia, Kendra Overall acknowledged that continued support from Truckline and other sponsors allowed the event to return and focus on raising as much money as possible. “With the ongoing support from Truckline and principal partner Viva Energy, we wouldn’t be able to hold an event like the Convoy and raise the money we do. Having corporate sponsors means all the funds raised by the truck drivers, the motorbike riders and the community at large supports Victorian kids to help children 0-13 deal with their own diagnosis, or the diagnosis of someone they love, like a brother, sister, mum or dad. We are there for them through the daily ups and downs of cancer. We create opportunities for the kids to be kids again: in-hospital, at home, at school and away from it all.,” Kendra said. “In the words of a family member: Camp Quality provides us with the opportunity to escape the daily treadmill of everyday life. To have smiles and laugher in the midst of a dark time is priceless.” Kendra told us. After a year off, this year’s Convoy will proceed slightly differently from earlier events, including the introduction of a Show and Shine following previous feedback. Registration fees for trucks and motorbikes in the Convoy are also substantially reduced this year, making the convoy accessible for participants, with all Convoy entrants encouraged to use the event to drive fundraising from their own networks. The Convoy will start from Avalon Airport at 8:00am on April 7, arriving back at the airport around midday where the Show and Shine and a range of family-friendly events will take place, including face painting for the kids, courtesy of sponsor Truckline. General entry is a gold coin donation, which includes the family activities on-site, and a raffle will be conducted to support the fundraising initiative. The day will conclude at 3pm. An auction for the lead truck and bike positions will take place on 28 March, from 6pm - 9pm at White Rabbit Barrel Hall, Little Creatures Brewery, Geelong. This will also provide an opportunity for drivers to get together socially and find out more about the great work done by Camp Quality.

Truck drivers and motorbike riders alike gather for Convoy Local Perth businesses supporting each other to serve transport, mining & agriculture 2019-02-14T06:18:05Z local-perth-businesses-supporting-each-other-to-serve-transport-mining-agriculture Twelve years ago ex-Truckline employee Paul Simons set out on his own, using his sought-after expertise to establish Driveshafts Australia. Today, the Western Australian business is well respected for its quality workmanship and responsive timelines. In industries where time matters - mining, transport and agriculture - Paul manages to go the extra mile for his customers; prioritise expertise, quality and innovation; and do his bit for the environment all at the same time. To read more about the principles that set this small business apart please read below or attached. Photos are also attached and available in higher resolution. To arrange an interview with Paul please don't hesitate to contact me. Kind regards, Alison Treloar Seftons | Truckline media relations 02 6766 5222 alison.treloar@seftons.com.au Driveshafts Australia goes the extra mile for customers with assistance from proven parts provider It’s the day before a long weekend and you’re heading off to catch up with friends. But then a phone call comes in from a customer who’s had a machinery failure and needs help – fast. The afternoon plans are abruptly cut short and it’s back to work. That’s all part of the service for Driveshafts Australia (DSA) whose customers rely on the highest quality product, delivered as quickly and efficiently as possible. DSA was established by Paul Simons 12 years ago and specialises in the repair, balance and manufacture of drive shafts, as well as a custom-design service. The DSA team works on all types of drive shafts – from automotive and industrial, to those for heavy vehicles in the transport, mining and agriculture industries - and Paul says his staff understand just how important their job is to the customers who rely on them. It doesn’t matter when an urgent call comes in, it needs to be dealt with – no matter the hour. “The guys know the rules. It could be 3.55pm and we think we’re knocking off at 4 o’clock, but we get a phone call saying a truck’s broken down and that’s it. A couple of guys will stay back and we’ll get the job finished. It’s about providing the quickest service we can to keep people rolling. While the trucks and machines aren’t moving, they’re not making money,” Paul said. Parts are all important to a business like DSA and to ensure they can source the best-quality drive shaft products, at the best price, when they need them, they use Truckline, which has a similar philosophy to Paul’s: get the customer what they need as quickly as possible, with the best advice and support available. It’s no surprise to learn then that Paul was once a Truckline employee, starting with the company 30 years ago and working for them for almost two decades. He said he was taught by some great people at Truckline, who all instilled in him the values of loving what you do, and doing it to the highest standard. Paul said he has a close relationship with his nearest Truckline branch manager and most of the parts they needed were always available from the branch. If not, he said they could rely on Truckline to source them as quickly as possible. “Every month when we put a stock order in, they supply it quickly and ensure everything keeps running smoothly. We know we can count on them,” he said. The drive shaft business is a competitive one and DSA is always striving to go that extra mile in all they do, from customer service, right up to the most technical of design and manufacturing requests. “A lot of people have this idea about drive shafts – ‘oh yeah, it’s only a drive shaft’ – but if the drive shaft is not working properly it can cause a lot of problems,” Paul said. “Transmission problems, differential problems, that kind of thing. That’s why when we started the business we invested in Schenk balancing, which is German technology, They’re one of the leaders in this area, so when you’re doing your balancing, which is one of the most important aspects of it, you know it’s being done right. For a large manufacturing business with the pressure of tight deadlines and maintaining profit margins while remaining competitive, caring for the environment might seem to be the last thing on the priority list, but for DSA it’s always been a consideration. “We’ve had a big solar panel system for quite a few years which is our way of doing something for the environment. People ask ‘how much did that cost you?’ and I say that doesn’t matter. I did it for the reason of reducing our carbon footprint because I think anything you can do, it’s all going to help,” Paul said. Going that extra mile is all part of the DSA philosophy, whether it’s for the sake of the environment or the customer who needs assistance fast. “We take pride in what we do and that’s one of the things I instil in the guys. If you’re not happy with the job you do, don’t expect the customer to be happy with it,” Paul said. “We’re also always learning and looking for new ways of doing things. While some businesses might say ‘sorry we can’t help you’, we think the opposite and say ‘yes, we can help you - we’ll get you going again.” Paul’s Five Business Mantras The customer always comes first Be happy in what you do Be proud of what you do Every day is a new day to learn Pursue your passion ENDS For further information or interview inquiries please contact Alison Treloar, Seftons, on email at alison.treloar@seftons.com.au or phone 0422 093 639 / 02 6766 5222.

With a width of 700 mm, the new addition from Australia’s most trusted name in truck mudguards and mudflaps is the only injection moulded mudguard made to this specification in Australia. Truckmate Business Development Manager, Lee Annett, said the new product was developed to accommodate wider profile tyres, which are increasingly being used to provide greater grip and overall footprint on the road, particularly amongst European vehicles. “With increasing use of the 295 wider profile tyre instead of the 11R standard tyre, including on the new Mercedes Actros, the new MG700 mudguard prevents rubbing which in turn will prolong the life of the mudguard,” said Lee, adding the MG700 guard will cater for all makes featuring the wider profile tyres. Lee also explains that the MG700 boasts an additional 50mm internal width, which allows additional clearance on the wider profile tyres. “The MG700 features our signature ribbing which offers increased strength and dimensional stability, and combines with the additional clearance to deliver maximum spray suppression,” he said, adding the design provides similar width clearance to the European style “3 piece” mudguard seen on Scania trucks in Australia and is compatible with all truck brands. Like all Truckmate Mudguards, the MG700 product is injection moulded from the highest quality UV-stabilised, impact modified polypropylene, and the company is proud to have been manufacturing in Australia for almost 30 years. “We’re proud to be a locally-owned company and to conduct our manufacturing processes here in Australia,” said Lee. Truckline General Manager Mick Henderson said the MG700 ticks the box for Truckline for many reasons. “We’re committed to providing customers with a range of high quality products and Truckmate has been a trusted name in the industry for a long time. Truckline stocks aftermarket parts for all makes and models of truck and trailer, and the new MG700 ensures we continue to cater to requirements for European brands,” said Mick. "And the fact that Truckmate continues to manufacture here in Australia is really something to celebrate,” he added. The MG700 mudguard is 700mm wide, 610mm high and 1280mm in length. It is compatible with all the current Truckmate mudguard accessories such as Hanger Brackets, Chassis Mount Bracket Offset tubes, boss caps and reflectors and the Spacer kit.
