Triple celebration for Australia’s largest commercial vehicle accident repairer


ALL good things come in threes and no-one knows better than Royan Truck and Trailer Repairs. A leader in commercial vehicle accident repairs, 2019 is shaping up to be a year of celebrations for the business which has announced its expansion to eight branches nationwide following the acquisition of Polan's Truck Refinishers.


Group general manager Steve O’Reilly says Royans will continue to service the needs of Polan’s customers by offering the same quality service on light commercial repairs.

"Polan’s Truck Refinishers is a respected family business and a perfect fit for the Royan Group."

 “Polan’s Truck Refinishers is a respected family business with experienced staff that operate in a fully-equipped repair facility in the Melbourne suburb of Dandenong South, and as such, is a perfect fit for the Royan Group,” he said.


The Dandenong branch is located just off the EastLink freeway and Dandenong Valley Highway, 32km south of Royans Melbourne. The workshop’s proximity to Royans’ Bayswater branch will enable the two facilities to manage their workloads together and provide efficiency and flexibility for their customers.


“Ultimately, everyone at Royans understands the cost of downtime to business and livelihoods of being off the road and we make it our goal to keep customer downtime to an absolute minimum,” said Mr O’Reilly.


The acquisition is a triple celebration for Royans, coinciding with its Melbourne branch taking out the Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce (VACC) ‘Best Commercial Vehicle Body Repairer’ award for the third year in a row and the business celebrating its 75th anniversary.


“Winning three consecutive VACC industry awards is a direct result of the hard work and dedication that Royans Melbourne team members have put into delivering a first-class service tailored to our customer needs,” said David Church, managing director, Royans Melbourne.


Founded in 1944 in an old wood and coal yard in Parramatta, Sydney, the Royan Group is a fourth generation family business which has grown to become Australia’s largest commercial vehicle accident repairer with branches in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Wagga, Dubbo, Newcastle, Wodonga and now Dandenong. Royans specialises in accident repairs to all forms of commercial vehicles and associated equipment including trucks ranging from light rigids to prime movers, all trailers including tippers, tautliners, stock-crates and vans as well as earthmoving plant and mining equipment.


With the 75-year celebrations in full swing, customers can rest assured Royans will continue to provide the highest quality truck, trailer and equipment repairs for many years to come.
