Mental health is an important facet of life, regardless of who you are, where you live or where you work. All too often we see the impacts of neglecting mental health only after it’s too late to prevent them from occurring.

It’s been a busy month at The Drake Group’s design and manufacturing facility in Wacol, with new deliveries rolling off the production line to happy customers. Here’s some of the most recent ones.

Only one thing beats seeing our newly manufactured heavy haulage trailers roll off our production facility, and that’s seeing them on the road doing what they were built for.

The Drake Group Managing Director John Drake has recently elected to a permanent position as the President of the Heavy Vehicle Industry Australia (HVIA).

SMC Heavy Haulage are a big customer in more ways than one. The company, which operates out of Brisbane but delivers across the entire country, specialises in loads that are over-size, over-high and generally over-the-top.

The team at Excavation Equipment (EXEQ) proudly claim that if they don’t have it, you don’t need it, and they have a long-standing reputation to back it up. With a network spanning Toowoomba, Gold Coast and Melbourne, EXEQ services the crushing and earthmoving industry around the country through sales and hire of local and overseas equipment, project management and logistics.

 2019 is proving to be a busy year for The Drake Group, with new deliveries rolling out of our Wacol manufacturing facility on a regular basis. We’re always happy to see one of our new trailers being matched up with one of our customer’s trucks, and here’s a couple of recent examples.

Clear your calendars for the middle of May, because the Brisbane Truck Show is coming back into town and it’s promising to be an event to remember.


The Nuremberg Toy Fair is one of the biggest events on the model collector’s calendar. It’s where hundreds of the world’s leading toy, games and model manufacturers come together to showcase their wares and entice new distribitors. Of course, Drake Collectibles was there.


Drake Collectibles’ range of die-cast models are meticulously detailed and look amazing in a display cabinet or on a shelf, but our customers have shown some remarkable creativity in using them in wildly wonderful situations.
