Mobile library now ready for the region

CUSTOMISED vehicle and trailer manufacturer Brimarco has delivered its first major new order: a 7.8-litre Isuzu FVL 1400 truck that will transport a mobile library to the Northern Rivers.

The new mobile library will shuttle around the Richmond Valley Council area and neighbouring Kyogle Council, giving local residents access to books, the internet and other shared resources.

Richmond Valley Council finance manager Ryan Gaiter says the council was pleased Brimarco delivered the library on time and on budget.

Mr Gaiter said the Brimarco team "impressed us with their efforts to help us find cost savings throughout the project, without sacrificing the high standards and quality of the library", which, he said, was an important consideration for the council.

This is the first major new order for the Ballarat-based company, which switched ownership in May.

Brimarco owner Matt Kirwan-Hamilton said it had a number of orders lined up for other state and local governments.
