Borg Manufacturing takes delivery of 25th anniversary Volvo FH16

One of Volvo Australia’s largest customers, Borg Manufacturing, has welcomed a new FH16 25th anniversary truck fitted with the latest technology offered by the Brisbane-based commercial vehicle manufacturer.

A panel business specialising in kitchens, Borg Manufacturing has been operating since 1978.

Brothers Michael and John Borg started manufacturing in the garage of their parents before moving to a factory in Charmhaven, NSW.

The business has since grown and Darren Borg is now responsible for managing its fleet of commercial vehicles.

In 2017 the Borg family was named as Volvo Visionaries, for having, according to Volvo, positively impacting the lives of others.

They have relied on Volvo commercial vehicles for over a decade and the latest edition comes with the electronically assisted steering with customisable personal settings, Volvo Dynamic Steering Evolution and lane keeping function, I-See, a terrain reading cruise control system that uses GPS and cloud technology to read the road ahead while preparing the powertrain for different road gradients and crawler gear equipped I-Shift transmission.

Inside the cab there is a Second Information Display for the driver, Dynafleet and a digital version of the operator’s manual.

The 25th anniversary FH16 can be controlled in connection with a third party remote control unit at speeds below 10 km/h under a new EXSTER feature.

“We are incredibly proud and humbled to have a loyal family like the Borgs as valued customers,” said Tony O’Connell, Volvo Trucks Australia Vice President.
