Over 30 Years

Over 30 years ago, Active Fabrications commenced operations. It was the crazy era of the 1980’s when people were wearing brightly coloured clothing and crazy hair. It was the year Bob Hawke won the election and became Prime Minister, that Active Fabrications first opened their door. Founder, Brian Dossett, identified a gap in the market and gave it his best shot. He started manufacturing trailer axles, as well as hiring out tilt wall props to builders. The word got around and Active Fabrications started selling an extensive range of trailer spare parts.  It included, trailer springs, trailer brakes, trailer bearings, trailer hubs and drums, trailer lights, boat trailer parts and camper trailer accessories. The business was up and running and getting traction.

Quality Products

The first home of Active Fabrications was a small factory in Chetwyn st Loganholme. However, it wasn’t long before the trailer supply business needed to move to a bigger premise. The business had been operating for nearly a decade when they found the perfect location to service their growing trailer parts superstore. 63 Logan River Road at Beenleigh in Queensland, Australia was the perfect site. From the new location, Active Fabrications were turning trailer axles and boat trailer axles on CNC lathes, and building upon its reputation as a supplier of quality trailers parts at affordable prices. Active established a supply deal with a manufacturer in Melbourne to source top-quality trailers for their growing customer-base in Brisbane. The trailers were put on display out the front of the factory on Logan River Road and it wasn’t long before they were snapped-up promptly by buyers looking for a quality trailer at an affordable price.

Great Service

The business continued to grow upon its range of trailer accessories, boat trailer rollers, trailer wheels, and other trailer spares. Active Fabrication’s reputation for quality, affordable prices and great service was spreading. Active developed a strong following of repeat customers in retail and wholesale sales. Demand for trailer suspension systems, including trailer mudguards, boat rollers and boat trailer lights, increased significantly. Active Fabrications expanded their trailer parts portfolio further and needed to take on additional factory space to cater for the increased product range. The company acquired two adjoining factory spaces to their premise at 65 Logan River Rd, Beenleigh, moving their distribution and retail centre to the new locations.

Global Manufacturers

In 2010 Active Fabrications negotiated the services of a machining and manufacturing plant in China. It was one of the most significant moves in the company’s history. While they had an extensive range of quality suppliers in place for a large portion of their product lines, Active was looking to secure a permanent manufacturer for some of their product lines to ensure a high-standard of quality across all their trailer accessories and trailer parts.

Forever Expanding Range

Active Fabrications now occupies five factory warehouses on Logan River Road. They are expanding their range every year. If you need trailer kits, trailer guards, boat trailer wheels, boat trailer skids or any type of boat trailer spares or camper trailer parts, we’re your trailer part superstore.  You can always rely on Active Fabrications having exactly what you’re looking for. Part of our mission is to remain well informed, innovative, and ready to help customers find solutions with trailers.
