From humble beginnings to the leading national refrigerated transport service company in Australia

Greg Woodley

In 1978 Managing Director, Greg Woodley started the TRS business by repairing refrigeration units on trucks and trailers in the Sydney area. The client base grew due to the company’s reputation for timely and quality repairs.

As they say, the rest is history.
