"When I retired, my wife Elizabeth and I decided to try the Grey Nomad experience and drive around Australia, towing a caravan.
We bought a Toyota Land Cruiser and approached MACs to design and fit a new tray and canopy just for our needs.
The result has been terrific. They made the tray and canopy to our precise specifications and fitted them expertly.
It's been an absolutely fantastic trip so far. We've had no problems with the Toyota, and the MACs product and workmanship on our modifications have done exactly what they were meant to do."
Kerry Beazley: Retail Customer
Kerry and Elizabeth live in Dubbo, New South Wales. Now retired, the couple left Dubbo in 2015 for what Kerry describes as 'six or seven years, having a look around Australia'.
"Mastermyne is a mining contractor, with a requirement for heavy duty tray bodies that meet various compliance needs, depending on the site and operation.
We require a reliable and technically expert supplier to help design and build tailored tray bodies for all kinds of mining conditions and contingencies - that's why we work with MACs.
MACS have been very helpful in providing flexible options, particularly with removable ROPS trays, to ensure compliance across multiple operations.
We have been working closely with them in both light and medium vehicle operations for the last two years and have been very happy with the relationship, the service and the end products."

"We use MACS to supply solutions for a wide range of commercial vehicle fit outs on the Holden vehicles we sell.
Mining, commercial, government vehicles have all been fitted out by MACs.
MACs is a good match with our business. They are very knowledgeable in the fit out aspects of vehicles, allowing us to focus on selling the vehicle's features.
I have had extensive dealings with MACs for over 20 years and have been very happy with the relationship."

Fleet Manager: New Pioneer Motors
New Pioneer Motors is the Mackay Dealership for Holden and HSV. A premier Holden dealer, New Pioneer Motors sell new and used vehicles and have a completely professional workshop for services and repairs.
"Our business supplies new Toyota, Isuzu, Hyundai and Mazdas to Mackay’s consumers and industry - mostly in the mining sector, but also to tradesmen, and mums and dads.
We sell passenger and commercial vehicles right across the spectrum.
We work with MACs when we want something special or different - if a ute needs tailoring for a particular tradesman's need, a couple need a canopy for their family 4WD, a mining vehicle needs to be able to carry explosives safely.
In basic fit outs, MACs are just as expert. If we have a vehicle that needs to be purpose built but for a specific budget, we know MACs will deliver the goods for the price.
MACs have a fantastic depth of knowledge which is very useful for us and our customers.
So, whether we need something that is totally fit for purpose or a more standard, super reliable competitively priced fit out that gives our business the edge, we know we can rely on MACs."

"Building vehicle solutions in the ever changing mining environment is challenging.
We have engaged the MACs team for over 13 years to find and build vehicles that meet the many moving layers of vehicle compliance but provide the lowest cost of ownership over whole-of-life.
You can't beat experience and with Ross you have 25 plus years of providing engineered products specifically for the Bowen Basin.
That's why we call MACs first."
