Business name: Elecbrakes Pty Ltd
Business address: 7/22 Reliance Drive Tuggerah NSW 2259
What does your business do: Electric Brake Controller
Some business background : The business started in 2014 with much of the early development and sales done by founder and inventor Craig De leon. Working from his garage Craig developed a brake controller out of the norm. Trailer mounted Elecbrakes would provide top shelf brake control with maximum flexibility. Targeting the hire industry sales were spasmodic at best so another approach needed to be taken.
In 2016 the business made its move to commercial selling. A manager was employed and a direct business or B2B model was adopted. Sales have grown exponentially since with the business now supplying major caravan and camper trailer manufacturers. Some of our key partners are Jayco, New Age Caravans, Ezytrail and Platinum Campers along with many others.
Today Elecbrakes works out of its own factory at Tuggerah and employs 5 additional people to assist with manufacturing and sales. Elecbrakes specialises in brake controller technology. Along with Elecbrakes Craig is currently developing the next big thing in controllers.
The next device is a controller, actuator and break away unit all in one. Specifically designed to work on hydraulic brakes the new product is due for release in 2021.
Any advice to 4WD drivers, caravan owners, boat owners, plant owners etc: The best advice anyone can give to trailer operators is to know and understand the trailer, its braking capability and how load change, driving conditions and the environment can impact your ability to tow safely.
