It’s coming up to 27 years of manufacturing service bodies and canopies in Australia and the feeling is we’re only getting started.
Reflecting on the years
Although it’s been just six years and six months since I started with XL, I’ve been around the business since 2001. I feel very fortunate to be part of such a special group of men and woman who make XL what it is today.
Our business is now stronger than ever with over 70 fulltime employees who really believe in what we’re doing. XL utilises the best sheet metal machinery in the world and we customarily set our standards beyond customer expectations.
Our Mission Statement, written nearly 30 years ago sums it up quite well:
Made in Australia…Sold to the World!
It’s a great tagline and we love saying it! XL aren’t the only ones manufacturing service bodies and canopies in Australia; we maintain a healthy respect for our competition who also employ and upskill other Australian men and women in sheet metal manufacturing.
Whether or not XL is your preferred supplier, please make your choice Australian! XL takes great pride in exporting our products around the word and unlike some of our competitors, when you see a shipping container at XL you can be sure of one thing; we’re loading it!
OMG, that was a long month. I can assure you our wives will just donate the money next year! Even though we didn’t promote our Movember campaign, I can assure you we all are behind this very noble movement. XL reached our goal of $1,000 by directly donating $950 to the Movember Foundation (the other $50 was all you Georgia … we love you!). If you’d like, please add more to our fundraising efforts click here.
In recent weeks both XL Service Bodies and Service Bodies Australia opened the doors to our new showroom adjacent to our manufacturing facility in Wacol. We showcased several new products including an all new canopy configuration we call ‘Canopy X’.
The feedback to date has been incredibly positive and we look forward to holding our official Grand Opening in February 2018. If you wish to have access prior to our official open, please contact our Sales Office on 1800 677 601 to make an appointment.
