Home Hill has a new venture which will see it service more than 700km of north Queensland and far north Queensland with all of its trailer needs.
Six supported employees at Endeavour Foundation Industries Home Hill, also known as CW Taylor Farm, have been given the skills to assemble the steel trailers.
The supported employees fully-assemble the trailers at the Home Hill site, with Endeavour Foundation Industries Home Hill offering the service, including trailer transport, to people living in Mackay right up to Cairns.
Endeavour Foundation Industries Home Hill assembles trailers in two sizes, both with a maximum load of 750kg.
The 6x4ft trailer costs $1,095, while the 7x5ft costs $1,395.
Assembly at the site follows a demand for the trailers at Endeavour Foundation Industries Southport.
Endeavour Foundation Industries Home Hill manager Shaun McAullay said the trailers were popular due to their competitive price and that customers knew they were not only buying a quality product, but through buying a trailer from Endeavour Foundation they were helping Endeavour provide opportunities to people with a disability.
Shaun said the supported employees were keen to learn new skills and enjoyed the training.
Supported employee Kevin Woods has been with Endeavour Foundation Industries Home Hill for 26 years and jumped at the chance to learn new skills.
“I like making the trailers,” said Kevin, who rates the trailer assembly up there with his favourite tasks.
“I like the mechanical side of making them. It feels good when I complete one and see the finished product.”
Endeavour Foundation Industries Home Hill is one of 26 Endeavour Foundation Industries sites throughout Queensland and Sydney, which provide employment opportunities to more than 1,850 people.
Endeavour Foundation Industries Home Hill has the capacity to employ 14 people with a disability, who work on a range of tasks such as making stakes and pegs, working in the site’s nursery, cutting industrial cloth, packaging and collating.
All proceeds go toward providing education, accommodation and employment opportunities to more than 3,400 people with a disability.
