TMC stays focused

Melbourne-based specialist supplier of airbag suspensions TMC Australia continues to concentrate on servicing the special-purpose trailer axle market.

At the Brisbane show, TMC will display a range of products aimed at this market, including a new low-profile air bag module, self-steer axles for the low loader and drop deck markets, short track axles to suit rows of eight float applications, as well as its full range of steel and forged alloy wheels.

“TMC has continued to increase its specialisation in the trailer axle market, which appears to be paying dividends,” says TMC Managing Director Brendan Dullard. “TMC’s product development or product progression comes principally from our small, but loyal customer base. We deal primarily with the specialist builders who, generally speaking, know exactly what they want and come to TMC because we are equipped to customise the product.

“The most recent example of this is our new rows of eight compatible axle with a narrower 335 mm x 160 mm ‘S’ cam brake, which was developed in conjunction with two of Queensland’s more specialist trailer builders and which we expect will generate a great deal of interest in Brisbane this year.” Brendan adds that much of that customisation has been directed at the low loader and drop frame markets, where TMC’s low-profile air bag module is gaining significant market share.

Directing more attention towards product specialisation and particularly special purpose axles for road-going, mining and agricultural applications is increasingly becoming TMC’s niche market, according to Brendan.

“We have the local engineering and local product development to handle this and we appear to be delivering what the customer needs. The number of repeat orders certainly indicates that.” The range of TMC products, including new releases of the latest low-profile air bag suspension modules, self-steer axles, special purpose axles, as well as TMC’s steel and alloy wheels, will be on display in Brisbane.
