About Us

Born in 1981 from humble beginnings as a family business, Serco has grown exponentially into one of South Africa's leading and most trusted insulated and dry freight truck body and trailer building companies, with the support of you, our valued clients.

Serco is based on the cornerstone philosophy that as we strive to help clients grow and prosper so we too will grow and prosper, and the company name was derived from "Service Company" to reflect our committed focus on service to the transport industry.

CEO Clinton Holcroft is at the helm with his father, Trevor - who founded the business - as Chairman, and the company now employs more than 400 staff at branches in Durban, Johannesburg, Cape Town and Gqeberha (PE).

From the get-go, Serco's vision has been to manufacture great products boasting low life-cycle costs for the transport industry with the priority being to give our customers the edge by continually raising the standard of our vehicle bodies and benchmarking against international standards.

Serco's vehicles are relied on by many of Southern Africa’s transport and long-distance hauliers to carry everything from ice-cream to day-old chicks, from beef to bread - safely and hygienically.

The company - whose position as a market-leader grows every year - has an enviable nation-wide reputation for quality and innovation in truck bodies and trailers and an unrivalled customer service ethic.

Delivering the "Serco edge" to our clients remains paramount!
