The year was 1981. Dirk Botha and a small team began what is now known as SA Truck Bodies in Bloemfontein. Since those days, the company has expanded to such a degree that it is undoubtedly the largest and most well-know trailer and allied product manufacturer in Southern Africa.


As with any growth strategy, the company began acquiring a number of different companies to ensure that their product range could satisfy all the comprehensive needs of their clients. The likes of SA Truck Bodies, SA Road Tankers, Busaf Bauer, Duncanmec, and most notably Henred Fruehauf, are amongst the various products that are manufactured by the group. Not only do they strive to supply a very specific product, but with a large component of engineers in the group every product supplied ensures that payload is optimised and all needs and preferences of the customer is accommodated.


With our different brands all being produced using the same design and in the same factory, this offers the brand-loyalists the surety that the unsurpassed quality of our products is carried through to every brand that we have on offer.


We ensure to be as innovative in our designs as we can, as well as adding new products to our already extensive catalogue.


We want to be there for our customers with the right product to suit your needs at the right price. We will ensure that we are there for you 365 days a year, supporting and adding value to your businesses.


We are not only in the trailer business but in the people business. The group offers a lifelong relationship to all clients, from the smallest of operators to corporate groups. Thus the reason for our slogan:


"Commit with confidence"
