Great Western commenced business in Toowoomba in the 1930’s. After World War Two Western Transport was founded by Cyril Anderson and his brother Curly which grew to become, in the 1950’s to early 1960’s, the largest road transport company in Australia. During the evolution of Western Transport, the group began to develop the strategic ability to diversify and rationalize operations to ensure long term growth and profitability. In the early days of Western Transport, the group created a division to import, manufacture, maintain and market trucks. This led to the establishment of manufacturing facilities for Mack Trucks and Leader Trucks in Australia. These activities were complemented by a range of imported products which, over the years, have included major brands such as Mazda cars, Kato cranes, UD trucks, TCM forklifts and NYK reach trucks.
