At Membrey’s we make it happen, we thought it would be a good time to reflect on some of the awesome work that has been happening at Membrey’s.
Membrey’s recently made an oversized delivery to the PACCAR Australia plant located in Bayswater. The trusty team at Kenworth Truck Bayswater helped us to MAKE IT HAPPEN. Measuring 20 metres in length, Membrey’s superstar ‘Jack’ brought with it Australia’s largest Trussed Bridge Crane. The crane is as part of the $37 million plant expansion due to be completed in 2021.
Late last month, a 90-tonne crane toppled onto a power substation in South-East Melbourne causing chaos as 40 sets of traffic lights blacked out and 20 thousand homes lost power. Membrey’s came to the rescue and were on the scene quickly to help solve the problem. My daughter, Leah Membrey, even made an appearance on 7 News to comment on what happened
On September 24th, I had the honour of speaking at the New Zealand Road Transport Conference. New Zealand has one of the highest male suicide rates in the world and as it was mental health awareness week the timing was ideal. It never gets easier to tell my story, but I know if it can help one person – stop one family from going through what my family and I have gone through, it’s worth it.
Over the last few months we have made some new additions to the Membrey’s fleet which we are very excited about. We are now the proud owners of a 5×8 Swingwide Extendable with Rear Steer manufactured by the amazing Drake Group. We’ve also picked up a few other new additions, such as the 40-tonne Franna, 410 twin steer Kenworth with Mega Hiab, Maeda MC 285 and (F1XUP) Field service truck. Check out the newest members of the fleet below!
We can’t wait to see what the rest of the year brings. Follow our Facebook page to keep in the loop about what’s going on at Membrey’s Transport and Crane Hire.
