Bundy-made trailers shipped to the US
YOU don't need to travel to the North Pole to see what it's like inside Santa's workshop, just head to the Trailer Shop on Lester St in Norville.
Inside you will see Kerry Yeomans and her team of helpers busily crafting trailers for Bundaberg, Brisbane and now America, too.
Mrs Yeomans said her family business was rapidly growing before her eyes with their first shipment of four customised trailers ready to be shipped overseas.
The offshore order comes as Bundaberg-born business Gutter Vac expands to America and stays true to its original supplier, the Trailer Shop.
Mrs Yeomans said she was flattered that the company had chosen to keep her business as its trailer supplier.
She said the company in America, Outback Vac, had been sent a prototype earlier this year from the Trailer Shop and went around American trying to find a business to create a replica of the trailer.
But Mrs Yeomans said they could not find another one they were content with.
"So they stayed with us because they love the quality and consistency of our build," Mrs Yeomans said.
With a combined value around $40,000, the first four trailers are the first batch order, with more to come.
Mrs Yeomans anticipated her business may be supplying anywhere from 50-200 trailers a year to the new Outback Vac American chain.
"We've recruited and trained new staff to work solely on these," Mrs Yeomans said.
But she said business would remain as usual at her Bundaberg store with the company continuing its supply to the general public.
