Despite a flurry of rumours of the demise of Peki Trailers, a spokesman for parent company MaxiTRANS says the brand is alive and well.

Acknowledging the closure of the Peki factory at Hallam in Victoria, the spokesman says MaxiTRANS has moved production to its Ballarat factory, which is also home to the engineering and research and development arm of Peki.

"This week, MaxiTRANS implemented a decision to change its distribution model for Peki, moving from an in-house sales force to a dealership model.

Henceforth, the full range of Peki vans and rigid bodies will be sold, serviced and supported by the national Freighter/Maxi-CUBE dealer network," says the MaxiTRANS spokesman.

While admitting there were job losses associated with the move, the spokesman says MaxiTRANS tried to redeploy as many staff as possible.

The Peki product would continue to be the same as previously, he says, with the only difference the factory where the trailers and bodies are produced is now in Ballarat.
