Life as a one-man refrigeration unit repair
Founded in 1984 by Managing Director Greg Woodley, TRS started in business by simply repairing refrigeration units on trucks and trailers in the Sydney area. The client base grew due to the company’s reputation for timely and quality repairs but there were times when a refrigeration unit could not be repaired, so the company expanded its services to include the sale of second hand refrigeration units.

Thermo King- the worlds leading mobile refrigeration manufacturer
As a consequence of importing second-hand refrigeration units TRS was approached in 1993 by Thermo King (a leading manufacturer of transport temperature controlled systems) to take on the New South Wales distribution of their products. The dealership involved not just selling new units, but providing comprehensive product support that included servicing and supplying spare parts.
Taking on distribution of the world’s lightest and most powerful tail lift-Anteo
Having successfully distributed for Thermo King, the company was approached in 1995 by Anteo the leading manufacturer of aluminium tail-lifts for trucks and trailers. TRS was asked to act as exclusive distributor of new product in New South Wales, as well as support existing customers with service and spare parts.

RTR Truck Rentals, solving the needs of short term refrigerated truck rental
In the early part of this decade TRS customers were increasingly looking for rental services to solve their short term trucking needs. As a consequence of this demand in 2001 TRS created a new division within the company to rent a range of refrigerated vehicles on either a daily hire basis or long-term contract leases.
