Wilkinson Transport Engineers

Welcome to Wilkinson Transport Engineers Limited.

Wilkinson Transport Engineers specialise in and manufactures state-of-the-art low entry vehicles in dual steer configurations for rubbish, line-marking and sweeper trucks among other heavy engineering work for clients throughout New Zealand.

From a small engineering shop in the ’90s, Wilkinson Transport Engineers have grown exponentially, and remarkably from the same premises, they occupy today at 12 Albert Street in Cambridge.

Although they commenced business as general engineers specialising in heavy transport, they quickly realised their strengths lay in cab and chassis modification and suspension, steering and braking developments for the heavy transport industry and in later years have developed specialised Low Entry and Dual Steer cab chassis vehicles for the waste and environmental industries. Our clients comprise major waste companies and OEM truck distributors who require modifications to their vehicles to allow users to achieve maximum weights over chassis and axle configurations that comply with NZ specifications and which are different to the standard offerings by most manufacturers.

Testimony to the quality of our work is the fact that we work directly with the truck distributors and their clients together to ensure all vehicles meet the distributors exacting OEM standards and their client’s operational objectives. All modifications are certified by independent vehicle certifiers before final delivery to the client to ensure the vehicles meet NZTA exacting standards.

Today, Wilkinson Transport Engineers proudly stand as leaders in their chosen field offering exceptional service to exacting OEM standards as required by truck manufacturers worldwide.
