AJM Transport’s Dennis Roohan and the ITC Converter Dolly Project are the winners of the Australian Trucking Association’s (ATA’s) 2020 Castrol Vecton Industry Awards.

Celebrating industry technical and maintenance excellence, Roohan claims the Craig Roseneder Award while the converter dolly project snares the Castrol Vecton Industry Achievement award.  

AJM general manager Roohan oversees 150 pieces of equipment and 100 staff members and has been involved in the transport industry for more than 25 years after starting an apprenticeship in 1994.  

"Dennis is a proactive industry member and demonstrates outstanding knowledge, ability and leadership qualities," ATA Chair David Smith says.  

"Dennis is a longstanding member of the ATA’s Industry Technical Council, joining more than 15 years ago.  

"He currently serves at the ITC vice-chair, and chairs the council’s productivity working group, and is well-known his expert technical knowledge and hands-on approach to workshop management."

Roohan will receive a fully paid trip to the US to attend a US Technology and Maintenance Council’s Annual Meeting and Transportation Technology Exhibition.

He also gains complimentary registration to the next in-person ATA Technology and Maintenance Conference (TMC).

The 2020 Castrol Vecton Industry Achievement Award goes to the ITC Converter Dolly Project supply partners: MaxiTrans, Jost, Wabco, Alcoa, Bridgestone and Hendrickson.

"The project was a collaboration of the resources and knowledge of manufacturers, suppliers and operators all working towards a common goal," Smith says. 

"With immense support from the supply partners, this project explored the further development of a rigid drawbar converter dolly and came after ITC member discussions regarding the dynamic issues with hinged drawbar converter dollies, especially brake reactivity and tyre wear. 

"The needs of our industry are constantly changing, and this project and its partners are essential to ensuring operators and businesses stay up to date with best practice. 

"I congratulate our award winners and commend all award nominees for the important work they do."
