When Warwick Wilshier bought a second-hand White Road Boss to go logging as an owner-driver in 1982, he wasn’t exactly planning to build the business that today is one of the stand-out names in New Zealand’s timber industry. Williams & Wilshier – Garry Williams is no longer a partner in the Rotoruabased business – operates 68 company log trucks while also having 20 fulltime owner-drivers. Warwick also has a third share in Gisborne-based Pacific Haulage which has 40 units in logging on the North Island’s east coast.

It was also the start of a rock-solid partnership between Treloar and Cummins.

Frank Raso knows a bit about concrete. His father Pal started working for Boral in Melbourne with an agitator in the early 1960s and Frank himself bought his first agitator nearly 30 years ago. Today, Raso runs a fleet of agitators and tippers in Boral colours in metropolitan Melbourne, with Mack, Kenworth, Western Star and Iveco ACCO represented in his operation. The latest additions to his agitator fleet are four 8x4 Western Star 4700s, the first of which was put into service over two years ago.

The vision of roadtrains punching through the great emptiness,plumes of dust marking their progress, will forever remain a trademark of Road Trains of Australia (RTA).

Buntine Roadways had its origins in the 1950s, an iconic business that Noel Buntine sold to a NSW company in 1981.
