BoXLoader has acquired the Swinglift brand, and will now supply the Australasian and International markets giving BoXLoader the opportunity to provide the container sideloader community with a greater choice from a single distributer, simplifying the process of choosing the best product for any sideloader operation or task.
The acquisition of the Swinglift brand by BoXLoader, means The Drake Group, which currently supply and support the BoXLoader range of container sideloaders in Australia, will now also offer the entire Swinglift range of container sideloaders to the Australian market.
The Drake Group’s specialist range of O’Phee BoXLoader container sideloader trailers launched in 2011, provides a point-to-point transportation solution made with the operator in mind. Each model features ample structural stability paired with a clever operating system, which maximises the safety of both crane and stabiliser performance.
For 60 years, The Drake Group has made its name in the Australian market due to its steadfast commitment to innovation and reliability. The recently acquired O’Phee Trailer brand helped to broaden the range and continue the growth. Drake Group branded trailers are designed, manufactured and serviced in the country and made for Australia’s demanding road network, one of the toughest in the world.
The company has been at the forefront of new trailer concepts, starting with the Swingwing in 1969. The Drake Group’s product expansions through the years since shows its commitment to consistently push new innovations into the market.
The Drake Group currently supplies the Australian market place with a wide range of transport equipment from Drake, O’Phee, BoXLoader, Commeto, Collectibles and now Swinglift.
Over the coming months, the new BoXLoader and Swinglift arrangement will start to take shape within the Australian and the global marketplace. Swinglift will continue to be manufactured by Swinglift as it has been however under the BoXLoader umbrella.
The Patchell Group will continue to market the Swinglift range to their New Zealand customers, while BoXLoader and its global partners, including The Drake Group in Australia, will do the same for the rest of the world. All enquiries in Australia should be directed to ‘The Drake Group’.
