Customised vehicle and trailer manufacturer Brimarco has delivered its first major new order – a 7.8 litre Isuzu FVL 1400 truck that will transport a mobile library to a regional New South Wales municipality.

The new mobile library will shuttle around the Richmond Valley Council and the neighbouring Kyogle Council, giving local residents access to books, the internet and other shared resources.

Richmond Valley Council Finance Manager Ryan Gaiter says the Council is pleased that Brimarco delivered the library on time and on budget.

Gaiter says the Brimarco team "impressed us with their efforts to help us find cost-savings throughout the project, without sacrificing the high standards and quality of the library", which, he says, was an important consideration for the Council.

This is the first major new order for the Ballarat-based company that switched ownership in May.

Brimarco owner Matt Kirwan-Hamilton says they have a number of orders lined up for other state and local governments, including a semi-trailer mobile library for a Queensland municipality, and some private businesses.

"Over time, this will present new opportunities for jobs and suppliers, and we look forward to remaining a significant part of the Ballarat business community," Kirwan-Hamilton says.

In the past, Brimarco has built customised vehicles such as medical units, drug and alcohol testing unit, mobile marketing vehicles and race car transporters.
