In an Australian marketplace where more and more items are being imported and previously Australian manufacturers are moving their operations to more cost-effective overseas locations. There are still some things being built in Australia, and I would like you to meet one of the people building OTR wheels in Australia, Iain Stillie

Born in Scotland, Iain’s parents migrated to Australia in 1981 when he was two. Iain started his apprenticeship with Titan back in 1997 as an apprentice machinist and has now worked for Titan for over 15 years through two tenures. Since starting with Titan Iain has held the roles of CNC programmer/operator, crack tester and is currently working as one of the quality control managers in our Yatala fa­cility.

What’s the best thing about working for Titan?

“I enjoy the fact that we are still making products in Australia. Here in Yatala, we have a great team environment in the workshop, and there is always room for career progression.”

What do you do outside of work?

“I like to get outside, whether it is riding mountain bikes, fishing or camping.”
