We originally began our manufacturing and servicing career for the transport industry in 1970, before diversifying into various other industries. This proud legacy continues today as we still specialise in the transport industry with our refrigeration services for manufacturing and production, but have also expanded into ruggedised equipment for the Australian Defence Force.

We understand that in the transport industry, every minute and every kilowatt counts.


Heuch was commission by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) to implement the environmental temperature controls for their outside broadcasting vehicles

The maintenance of constant temperature control in four separate zones is provided by a twin circuit, Heuch customised air-conditioning system with contingent redundancy for backup. The vehicle used triple rear axle assemblies with air bag suspension. Extra space was provided by expanding sides on the side of the trailer with access at either end. A hydraulic levelling system was installed with actuators in each corner. An extensive locker system for cables and equipment was placed between the main air conditioning sections in the lower, under floor sections.

To ensure the longevity of paintings, sculptures and other artefacts, they are stored and displayed in an environment where humidity and temperature are controlled; the requirements are the same in transport. When masterpieces by artists like Sidney Nolan, Arthur Boyd or Russell Drysdale move around Australia and interstate, they need a controlled, protected environment to move in.

Battery and Solar Powered Refrigerated Trailers – Decarbonise The Cold Chain Industry

Transporting food and medicine that need to stay cold requires refrigerated trucks, but they use a lot of diesel and produce a lot of CO2. A new solution is to use trucks that run on solar and battery power, which can make cold chain transportation more eco-friendly.

Solar and battery powered refrigerated trucks can lower the operating cost of a diesel refrigerator by up to 90%. They can also shrink the carbon footprint of a fleet by up to 9 tonnes of CO2 for each vehicle, every year. These trucks can also keep the goods cool for longer, as the solar panels can charge the battery system when the truck is stopped or moving. This can make the goods better and safer, and also prevent food from going bad.
