Drake Trailers

Investing in Apprenticeships

As an Australian family-owned company, our apprentices are a big part of Drake Trailers’ success. For over 20 years we’ve been working with Apprenticeships Queensland to provide skills and training to the next generation – ensuring our industry is in safe hands, well into the future.

As the winner of Apprenticeships Queensland’s Host of the Year in 2012 and 2013, we recognise that apprenticeships are about more than simply giving young people a skill set, it’s about instilling the values of quality, workmanship and what it means to be part of a workforce. These values are all part of The Drake Way of doing things.

Congratulating the Drake Trailers class of 2012 at our 8,650m2 trailer manufacturing and finishing facility in Wacol, Brisbane last year, Apprenticeships Queensland said:

Drake Trailers has been great supporters of ours and have trained a lot of apprentices. We are grateful to Drake Trailers for providing really good quality training. These apprenticeships are about giving young people the skills necessary to a make a living from their trade, wherever they go.”

Drake Trailers is Australia’s leading Heavy Haulage Trailer designer and manufacturing company. Drake has been supplying custom trailers to suit Australian conditions for over 50 years.
