From garage to factory: Family trailer business gets R2m cash injection.


Lucas Maluleke started Trailored, a small custom trailer company, in a Soweto garage in 2003. At the time, the business could build one new trailer every few three to four months - but has since expanded capacity to produce more than that each day.
