Partners in Innovation

TES is showcasing OMFB Products including the HSV Safety valves at this year’s Brisbane Truck Show.

Transport Engineering Solutions (TES) and hydraulic equipment manufacturer OMFB have been working together to bring innovative hydraulics solutions to the transport industry for over 30 years.

TES and their customers know they can depend on OMFB products to ensure that their vehicles are reliable, safe, and efficient.

TES are at the forefront in the design, supply, and installation of transportation equipment, and have a prolific history of innovation and excellence in the industry.

Previously operating as Gough Transport Solutions, the company strengthened its operational capabilities by joining Sime Darby Motors Group in 2019 and rebranded to Transport Engineering Solutions. This name-change reflected TES’s commitment to innovation and excellence, and it marked the beginning of a new era of growth.

OMFB’s origins started in 1950 as a small mechanical workshop in Italy run by three brothers, manufacturing spare parts for American, English, and German trucks for the post-war rebuilding reconstruction.

Over the past 70 years, OMFB have established themselves as an internationally renowned manufacturer of the highest-quality hydraulics components serving multiple market segments.

Partnering with OMFB was a natural choice for TES due to OMFB’s reliability, safety, and efficiency; all of which are crucial requirements in the transport industry.

TES will be showcasing OMFB Products including the HSV Safety valves at the upcoming Brisbane Truck Show from Thursday 18 to Sunday 21 May 2023.

These valves are manufactured to exacting standards, ensuring high levels of safety and reliability. With their pilot-operated design, they offer the fastest lowering speeds on the market and minimal pressure drop. They also feature an emergency override function for added safety and security and a 1/8” to 6mm airline swivel fitting, making them easy to install and use.

In addition to the HSV Series valves, OMFB will also showcase its 2-function auxiliary radio remote tipper control kit at the Brisbane Truck Show.

The product has been designed to be installed in parallel to a manual pneumatic control and allows an operator to control a pneumatic tipping valve by means of a radio remote control and includes shuttle valves and fittings making it ideal for retrofitting to existing set-ups.
