Our History

Transport Repairs Ltd (TRL) was established on 1 October 2017. The new Transport Repairs Ltd came about by amalgamating…

  • Transport Repairs (2003) Ltd with workshops in Invercargill, Gore and Cromwell
  • Full Fleet Service & Maintenance Ltd with a workshop in Dunedin
  • Heavy Transport Specialists Ltd with workshops in Hornby, Bromley, Rangiora and Darfield.

The three companies learned from their own valued customers, who have grown their businesses very successfully in the South Island, that it would be beneficial to come together.

Helping this amalgamation is the backing of transport giants Dynes Transport and HW Richardson. Both Peter Dynes and Scott O”Donnell join Mike Webster and Jason Popplewell as Transport Repairs Directors.
