At the turn of the last century, blacksmith and wheelwright DJ O’Neill had set up in the tiny township of Burraga, NSW where he manufactured and repaired horse-drawn vehicles. He later moved to Blayney and then to Newcastle – and by then, the work had shifted to automobiles. By 1962, his grandson Wilton O’Neill was the director of O’Neill’s Body Works Pty Ltd and the company employed eleven people who
specialised in motor body building and smash repairs.
O’Neill’s moved their truck and trailer division from Mayfield to its current premises in Sandgate in 1973. In the years that followed Wilton O’Neill and his family built a reputation for quality work in their truck repair, bodybuilding and heavy towing businesses.
In 2002, following negotiations with Wilton O’Neill, the Royan Group purchased O’Neill’s truck repair business and workshop in Sandgate, Newcastle.
Today the business is managed and run by some of the most experienced staff in the business - seven of whom did their apprenticeships with Mr O’Neill and many others who have worked for the company for more than twenty years.
O’Neill’s Truck & Trailer Repairs has invested in some of the most modern and efficient equipment available, including the latest chassis repair equipment, three spray booths, portable truck lifting hoists, overhead cranes and all the equipment necessary to complete a range of repairs on all types of commercial vehicles.
