PIRANHA’S BIG WIN

WORDS DEAN MELLOR PHOTOS STU MORLEY

PIRANHA Off Road Products has picked up two awards at the 2019 VACC Industry Awards, one for ‘Best Aftermarket & Retail Business (Small Business)’ and the other for ‘Best Parts/ Component Manufacturer’.

Piranha Off Road - recently acquired by McNaughtans Pty Ltd - was started by Alan and Barbara Johnson more than 30 years ago. A proud Australian company, Piranha Off Road is well-known for developing and manufacturing top quality dual-battery management systems and battery trays, and over the past three decades it has grown from a humble backyard business to one that manufactures and supplies a wide range of equipment for the Australian four-wheel drive touring market.

The culmination of Alan and Barbara’s hard work over the past 30 years was rewarded and acknowledged at the recent 2019 VACC Industry Awards held in Melbourne at the Grand Hyatt, where the Johnsons were called to the stage in front of a huge industry audience to receive the two awards.

McNaughtans is excited to build upon the solid base that the Johnsons have built for Piranha Off Road, and intends to expand the company’s range of products while continuing to cater to the growing Australian 4x4 touring, caravan and camping markets. Visit www.piranhaoffroad.com.au
