BW Enterprizes, based at Burton, makes essential components for trucks and road trains. While having been in business for less than two years, BW Enterprizes is responsible for designing the Binder Winder – a unique and easy way of winding portable ratcheted straps for storage when they’re not in use, which can be fitted to any gate slot on any trailer.
“If you’ve got a problem, take yourself to the Polaris Centre… they have helped me immensely” – BW Enterprizes owner John Ball
BW Enterprizes owner John Ball said the Binder Winder concept came about after sitting in his cab watching a fellow driver hand roll his portable ratchet straps on a hot 45 degree day. “That night I came up with Binder Winder; an Australian made durable device, designed to make the job of rolling and storing portable ratchet straps a little easier.”
“I’d been a truck driver for 48 years and I didn’t know anything about business, but the opportunity came up and I grabbed it,” said John, who took up the opportunity to participate in the Polaris Centre’s Mentoring for Success program
“It’s had a huge impact,” he said. “It has given me an insight into the business world and now I know where to go, who to see and what to do, and virtually how to run an organised business.”
