A proud family owned and operated business, Byrne Trailers is recognised as the leading manufacturer of specialised Livestock and Bulk Cargo Transport Equipment in Australia.
Laurence Michael (Mick) and Teri Byrne founded Byrne Trailers in 1974. Today Mick continues in an advisory role while Teri also still actively contributes in the business. Both Mick and Teri have seen the company grow from small beginnings in Peak Hill NSW to now hold the position of market leader in the manufacture of Livestock Trailers nationally. Extensive manufacturing facilities were established in Wagga Wagga in 1988 with expansion to Queensland in 1993 with the setting up of a manufacturing and service depot in Toowoomba.
Mick has extensive experience in the design and manufacture of heavy transport equipment and has engineering qualifications. He is credited with designing and commercialising a number of revolutionary monoque trailer designs incorporating the 4×2 convertible livestock trailer, the 2 deck cattle trailer with a first in the industry to introduce air-bag suspensions to livestock trailers. This is well recognised widely with the BYRNE ‘NON BRUISE’ and ‘RIDING ON AIR’ logo and has since been adopted as industry standard. Mick has served on various agricultural advisory boards both to Government and Industry organisations.
