Council Connections - 2 March 2023

2nd March 2023

Well Done to Beatts Fabrications, Free Business Digital Strategy Workshop and Upper Burdekin Wind Farm Public Comments Open

Well Done to Beatts Fabrications

In September 2022, Council procured three trucks from Isuzu Townsville for the 2022/2023 Fleet Replacement Program.

As part of the procurement engagement, Council Officers made it clear that local manufacturing companies were to be considered and given the opportunity to build the aluminium bodies of two tipper trucks.

Subsequently, Isuzu Townsville opted to subcontract the works out to locally owned business Beatts Fabrications, over Townsville based businesses like Rydweld.

Isuzu Townsville was engaged by Townsville City Council  (TCC) to deliver six trucks as part of their fleet replacement program, and as a result of this TCC has accepted the use of Beatts Fabrications as the subcontractor to build the trays for those trucks as well.

Congratulations to Lindsey Beatts, owner of Beatts Fabrications!
