Michael began his career when he was employed by Southern Truck Centre Queanbeyan, where he completed his apprenticeship as a Diesel Mechanic. In 1999, he decided it was time for a new challenge and ventured out to establish his own mobile mechanical service Michael Beard Truck Repairs, predominately servicing the Queanbeyan area and several close by quarries.
In 2002 Michael moved to Goulburn, and teamed up with his brother John. Together they established Tablelands Truck and Hydraulics, where they operated out of a small shared workshop in Goulburn.
Tablelands Truck and Hydraulics soon enough made reputable name for itself in Goulburn and surrounding areas, with extreme growth experienced over a short period of time. In 2003 the decision was made to move into a larger premise, to better cater for the customer base needs. It was in this year that Michael employed his first apprentice, and his wife Kimberley came on board to help run the administrative side of the business.
After experiencing further growth and being able to offer a multitude of services, the name Tablelands Truck and Hydraulics became no longer and TTH Industries Pty Ltd came into place. The change of name reflected the ability of the business to be able to offer products and services that were not solely limited to truck and hydraulic repairs.
After a third move in 2007 into the current premises of 38 Ross Street Goulburn, TTH Industries now employs over 10 people at any one time and offers a huge range of products and services for all heavy vehicle and plant equipment.
In 2008 we opened a showroom to target the selling of industrial tools and equipment, engineering supplies, lubricants, batteries and spare parts. We are the authorised gas distributor for Coregas and now offer a comprehensive range of welding, industrial and hospitality gasses.
In 2012 we became the exclusive distributor for Exxel aftermarket truck parts. This now allows us to better provide our customers with a larger and more competitive range of Japanese truck parts.
We continue to expand our range of products and services to suit the needs of our customers.
TTH Industries is still known for its reliable 24 hour breakdown service.
