The keys to Lindsay Transport’s 400th Australian made Kenworth were handed over to CEO and Managing Director Kim Lindsay and other members of the Lindsay family at the Kenworth DAF Bayswater plant on Monday 28th October commemorating a relationship of nearly 50 years.
Lindsay Transport was established by Tom and Pete Lindsay when they purchased three second-hand trucks from their father, Victor Lindsay in 1953. Then known as Lindsay Brothers, the business initially carried local fruit and vegetables to the trains in Coffs Harbour for transportation to the Sydney markets. Today, Lindsay Transport operates out of 16 terminals and has a fleet of more than 1000 vehicles, growing to become one of Australia’s largest transport companies. They bought their first Kenworth in 1988.
Also in attendance at the handover were members of the Brown and Hurley group, who are long-time partners of Lindsays.
Director Sales and Marketing Brad May handed over the T610 keys to Kim Lindsay at a ceremony and remarked:
“The delivery of Lindsay Transport’s 400th Kenworth marks a tremendous milestone for the Lindsay family, the Lindsay Transport organisation and Brown and Hurley. We are proud of the long relationship between our companies and we look forward to working together on the next hundred.”
Lindsay’s 400th Kenworth is a T610 powered by a 15 litre Cummins X15 Euro V engine, Eaton Ultrashift Plus Transmission and has number of distinctive features including; a stainless steel light bar and a specially embossed interior highlighting ‘Lindsay Transport’s 400th Truck’.
The new addition to the Lindsay fleet will continue to support Australian farmers and all parties in the supply chain, delivering reliable service nationwide and providing food to Australian families and beyond.
