Bennet Gage-Brown, Design Manager - TRT
Design and Engineering
Our design team at TRT focus on delivering our customers fit for purpose solutions with a real return for the whole of life.
TRT provide solutions from concept, with a focus on delivering our customers fit for purpose solutions that suit the business, the operation, and future opportunities. This starts with our team understanding your business before we even start the design process, based at our head office in NZ.
TRT have a team of 7 highly skilled and experienced engineering designers in-house which are a part of our integrated manufacturing process.
Our design team thrive on the challenge to improve a product or a process; find a way to enhance the functionality of a truck, trailer or crane; and a solution to make your vehicle move faster, to minimise tare weight, to become more efficient and as a result more economical.
Getting it right up front
We focus on solving problems. We make sure we understand the business, the payloads into the future. Our initial consultation is extensive; this means that when a customer comes to us with an idea of what they need, they will often end up with a manufactured solution that is different from the original idea, and a better fit for purpose.
Fit for purpose
Design at TRT is a collaboration between your team and ours. We involve you in the process and the planning. If you already have specifications and drawings, no problem. We will review them and make sure they are fit for purpose.
We will not fit you to a standard solution if it is not right. However, if a standard design works, then you will have peace of mind that you will have a quality, compliant, cost effective product…for the long haul.
The design team deliver design engineering services using state of the art technology from the latest solid works 3D modeling programmes to AutoCAD and 3D printing.
These are specialist capabilities that will ensure your solution is compliant, meets relevant regulations, is tested and capable before it is manufactured. Team capabilities include;
Qualified and experienced engineers and designers
Hydraulic design and engineering specialists
Transport regulations applied to designs
Compliance approval testing and documentation for heavy vehicle certification, Australia and NZ
Prototyping and proof of loading
Sourcing of quality, fit for purpose components from around the world
Design engineering is a process that includes our customers. It ensure our products are accurate, tested and fit for purpose. The diagram below shows the process we use for many of our projects including special builds and defence projects.
