GREATER EARNINGS

OUR STORY

PRBB was founded in Piet Retief, Mpumalanga in 1969 and – mostly thanks to word-of-mouth – established itself as one of the leading players in the province’s forestry and agriculture sectors.

Johan van de Wetering acquired PRBB as a going concern in 2013, and, in partnership with co-owner Sjaak Hagg, has further grown PRBB into a supplier of a wide range of innovative, durable trailers offering a greater payload.

By expanding into a greater variety of industries and establishing a production line in Pretoria, PRBB now is one of the fastest-growing players in the market, having achieved a tenfold increase in production and revenue within six years. The team achieved this by optimising production processes, standardising the designs of PRBB’s product range, and, most importantly, manufacturing and distributing trailers that enable GREATER EARNINGS.

A shared legacy in the trailer industry

Both Johan and Sjaak are no strangers to commercial trailer manufacturing, coming from families who share a strong legacy in the industry.
Their experience in trailer manufacturing span as far back as their childhoods, having spent school holidays working on trailer production lines. Even before high school, Johan and Sjaak could perform complex tasks on production lines, such as axle fitment and wheel alignment. After matriculating, they graduated in mechanical engineering.

Always moving – and thinking – forward

Thanks to their combined experience and having started at the bottom and worked their way to the top, Johan and Sjaak, together with the rest of PRBB’s management, share invaluable experience in trailer manufacturing and an understanding of the industry and client requirements on all levels.
In the day-to-day management of the business, Johan specializes in production management, while Sjaak applies his mind to the research, development, marketing and sales of PRBB’s innovative product range.
The company employs over 120 people and has its eyes firmly set on international expansion.

The PRBB Difference

World-class expertise

At PRBB, our engineers are in tune with the best international standards and practices. We believe in continuous improvement and innovation that exceeds the already high standards and practices the South African trailer manufacturing industry has grown accustomed to. We never compromise.

Putting people first

We believe it’s not just our products that should make a positive difference in the lives of our clients. We believe in building long-term relationships by always striving to go the extra mile. This is why our clients have direct access to the management of our company. As a Proudly South African company, we believe all of our stakeholders – employees, customers and suppliers – deserve a brighter future. We are committed to building a legacy for all, that can endure generations.

Our products stand out, and our people prosper!

Tougher, and more capable

PRBB’s side tippers can carry more than 700kg of additional payload in comparison with the products of rival manufacturers.
Our engineers also incorporated round pipes in the corners of
the side tipper bins, significantly reducing the stress
concentration that generally leads to cracks.

Wider tipping angles

The tipping angle of our side tippers is 42.8 degrees, as opposed
to the industry norm of 40 degrees.

Rugged, virtually indestructible

As a market leader in the timber trailer sector, we pride ourselves in the exceptional durability of our timber trailers. Unlike the trailers by some of our industry rivals, PRBB’s timber trailers can go directly into forests to load timber, resulting in unsurpassed efficiency and cost-savings.

Industry-leading cross members

While cracked and broken cross members and torque tubes are common place in the trailer transport industry, PRBB prides itself in countering this trend by building cross members with unmatched durability.

Lower centre of gravity

Lower centre of gravity of our trailers results in better towing stability and cornering.
