Mildura Truck Centre's humble beginnings back in 1951 at the Buronga Service Station

 

MTC kicked things off back in 1951 when Ken Leake put down a deposit of 10 pounds at the pictured Buronga Service Station on the border of Victoria and New South Wales. 

Two years into business, on the 11th May 1953, Ken signed his first dealership agreement with Freighter trailers; the beginning of a long and successful partnership. 

MTC is the oldest dealer relationship in the entire MaxiTRANS Dealer Network, something MaxiTRANS says is worth celebrating.

MTC Dealer Principal Glenn Leake, commends MaxiTRANS, saying the working relationship has fostered growth and success.

"As a family-owned business that has been around for generations, we have experienced substantial growth with the support of MaxiTRANS and this is testament to what makes a great working relationship," Leake said.

Over the years both MTC and MaxiTRANS have witnessed significant industry changes, growth and success.
