“Iluka Resources has had a relationship with Glen Carron over a number of years as both a sub-contractor and primary contractor. Our experience has shown us that Glen Carron has the personal touch from being able to speak to managers Michael or Doug about important matters. They have been flexible and willing to work with Iluka to manage changes in volume required. Iluka have been very impressed with the measures adopted by Glen Carron with adopting health and safety systems and processes to align with their customers. We look forward to continuing to work with Glen Carron in the future.”
THE GLEN CARRON STORY
Glen Carron commenced operations in the transport industry in 1973 with one truck and a flat top trailer carting wool bales. The company then moved into livestock and this is where it began to grow. Eventually moving into and remaining in bulk haulage. There are now 33 prime movers and 94 trailers in the fleet.
Glen Carron has offices at Beachport and Mount Gambier. There is also a warehouse storage facility in Portland. An office is being considered for this site in the future dependant on business growth and local demand for the storage facility.
The company has begun to diversify again looking at taut liners for interstate work.
The beach scene came about as a trial and for a display at an event within the Entertainment Centre being held by South Australian Road Transport Authority (SARTA). This was February 2009 and it has now become a means of branding the organisation when out on the open road. Most of the trailers now have the signature beach scene.
