Sloanebuilt Trailers was established in the mid 1970’s by Ken Sloane.  Fred and Helen Marano took on the business in the mid 1980’s and has since built a reputation for manufacturing quality tipping bodies that are custom built to suit its customers’ requirements. The product range includes everything from rigid bins and dog trailers, right through to B-doubles.

Starting in a small factory in Camden, greater customer demand necessitated the move to the current Smeaton Grange facility 14 years ago which previously offered 1665 cubic metres of factory space. An extension four years ago means the facility has virtually doubled in size, with a 1620 cubic metre extension

25 Year Milestone

In 2010, Sloanebuilt celebrated 25 years of being industry leaders in the tipping body and trailer manufacturing industry. Sloanebuilt celebrated its 25th birthday with the grand opening of its new 1620 cubic metre extension to their modern Hartley Rd factory, Smeaton Grange NSW.

The special occasion was marked by a grand opening of the facility by Camden Mayor Chris Patterson where more than 200 clients, staff and special guests joined Fred and Helen Marano in celebrating the milestone.

Sloanebuilt will continue to aim to be industry leaders over the next 25 years and beyond delivering the highest quality products and services they are renowned for.

30 Years in Business

1986 was a big year for many reasons.

The Mir space station was launched by the Russians in a step forward for the science community but they also had a little accident in Chernobyl that year – a slight step back for the world. Oprah Winfrey hit the TV screens in her own show as did the furry alien Alf, while Top Gun and Crocodile Dundee hit the big screens. The Olsen twins were born as was Lindsay Lohan. On the radio you were bopping to Venus by Bananarama and Addicted to Love from Robert Palmer. Closer to home, Bob Hawke was our PM, Sir Joh was trying to be PM of Queensland. Red Faces and Neighbours hit the small screen.

But most important to us, Fred and Helen Marano took on Sloanebuilt Trailers in 1986 and proceeded to grow the business to where it sits today, at the forefront of innovative trailer design and manufacturing. The next 30 years saw an unprecedented growth in the business owing to forward thinking, innovation, outstanding customer relationships and the support of our loyal customers. Recently announced, Sloanebuilt is again expanding into new, purpose built facilities that will continue to provide employment and revenue for the area along with the production and engineering design capacity to shake the industry up.
