50 years celebrating STM Trucks & Machinery

by editor

For almost half a century, STM has made it possible for businesses across Sydney and beyond to power up – supplying and servicing quality trucks and machinery to meet the demands of any job.

Starting out in a single shed in Western Sydney in the 1970s selling used trucks and tractors, STM Trucks and Machinery know what it takes to build a business – and are passionate about helping you grow yours. As a family owned and operated enterprise, their commitment goes beyond the mechanical. They care about giving every customer the best experience possible – from great deals and finance advice to friendly after sales service and quality parts.

Today, STM are proud to offer a multi-site, modern service – featuring state of the art workshops and showrooms and a team of more than 120. They may have come a long way from that shed, but their family values continue to shine through their reputation for personal customer service and strong community support.

Whatever the size of your business, whatever your budget, STM are your one stop shop – fully equipped with everything to keep you moving. A wide range of trusted brands, flexible finance, spare parts, expert service and smash repairs. It’s all right there – they make it possible.

For new and used trucks and machinery, there is only one name you need to remember. Power your business with STM.
