Australian Owned is proud to announce Sloanebuilt Trailers (SBT) as the 2023 Australian Owned Business of the Year. This award recognises businesses that are champions of the Australian Owned initiative and have a strong operational focus on Australian-produced and manufactured supplies and support services.

With 100% of manufacturing and operations located in Australia, SBT is dedicated to promoting the Australian economy and supporting local businesses. Sloanebuilt Trailers is an Australian family-owned business that has been designing, engineering, and manufacturing high-quality truck and trailer bodies for the Australian market for over 40 years.

Sloanebuilt Trailers’ commitment to quality and excellence is evident in their state-of-the-art 9-acre facility in Smeaton Grange. The facility specialises in manufacturing, repairs, and spare parts, making it a one-stop solution provider for all customer needs. With over 100 variants of products available, and made-to-order with strong performance-based standards (PBS), Sloanebuilt Trailers provides customers with choice and a personalised journey with the organisation.

The company consciously chooses all vendors locally and prioritises local suppliers to ensure the highest quality trailers are delivered to Australian businesses. SBT’s culture is dedicated to employee career development, promoting talent, and contributing to the local community.

Sloanebuilt Trailers’ success in the Australian Owned Business of the Year Award is a testament to their dedication to the Australian economy and commitment to producing high-quality products that are designed, engineered, and manufactured entirely in Australia.

SBT’s customers enjoy a long-lasting relationship with the company, with support and service provided long after the trailers are delivered. Sloanebuilt Trailers’ record customer retention rate is due to their generations of product knowledge, quality, excellence, innovation, and engineering.

As a winner of the Australian Owned Business of the Year Award, Sloanebuilt Trailers has demonstrated a measurable increase in their use of Australian products and services and has a proven track record of actively promoting Australian-owned businesses.
