Our Team

Our people & their families mean everything to us – and always will!

Our people

People are human! At TTi we believe that the products we manufacture, the marketing we produce and the facilities we have can be copied but nobody can duplicate the people or team that make our company what it is!

TTi invests heavily in the personal and professional development of its staff through engaging the services of expert trainers across many fields. We always believe we can learn more! 

A few of the Team .... and there's more!

André Büchner


André founded Trans Tank International, as Rapid Spray Southern in 1999, after relocating from South Africa. He has grown the business substantially since, employing over 55 individuals from local and surrounding areas. With a solid background in agricultural sprayers, Andre had the opportunity to manufacture roto-moulded water cartage and spray tanks, and seized it. This early business plan naturally progressed into producing fully equipped units and currently encompasses over 1,000 different products.

Andre offers a lifetime of experience in the industry, and a lifetime of puns to go along with it.

Ross Büchner


After graduating, Ross worked occasionally with the assembly team for a couple of years before moving into the sales office for a time, then earning the title of Marketing Manager in 2012. After gaining his experience around the company and a wealth of knowledge in every area of operation within the business over a number of years, Ross became the General Manager of TTi in 2014.

Ross is famously dedicated to the finer details, and never fails to motivate the team with his enthusiastic speeches and presentations.

Pierre Büchner


Pierre’s experience in this business goes back forever, having relocated from South Africa in the ‘90’s – working initially in the moulding shed, Pierre’s ‘people’s-person’ personality saw him transition happily into Sales as the business grew. He is responsible for a large number of corporate clients whilst maintaining his faithful agricultural customers and increasing industrial prospects.

Pierre’s ideas are never ending, keeping us all on our toes, with catchy phrases to boot!

Andrew Trappel


Andrew joined the TTi team with over 15 years of sales experience – From the retail floor and on-road sales, through to account management, Andrew is adept to understanding your needs and how he can add value to your business. 

A real people person, Andrew loves a chat, and won’t turn down a coffee if offered! When not on the roads of NSW and Queensland, Andrew can be found on the cricket or football pitch, enjoying family time, or at the local fishing spot.

Rolf Büchner


After a stint in the assembly shed, Rolf joined the Customer Service team – Full of product knowledge, Rolf can point you in the right direction and ensure that what you’re purchasing is safe, practical and the best solution for your particular application! He is a keen adventurer, always looking for an opportunity to test his body to the extreme in physical endurance through hiking, cycling or playing competitive sport.

Look out if you leave something slightly untidy or dirty behind you though, it will only be a matter of seconds before Rolf is onto you!

Kevin Büchner


Having ‘cut his teeth’ in product assembly, Kevin adds his youthful and energetic approach to the Customer Service team. Having been with the company for close to ten years, Kevin works steadily towards growing our industrial client database – showing particular aptitude for the FloodRite Water Cartage Units. 

Also a keen sketch artist and much sought-after coffee maker, Kevin ensure there is always a smile to be had in the office!

Jens Büchner


Having originally completed his ‘apprenticeship’ in the moulding, fabrication and assembly departments, Jens is now responsible for coordinating the marketing projects and driving development of the TTi brand. Responsible for a team of web developers and graphic designers, Jens ensures that TTi is always a step ahead of the game through his product knowledge, marketing strategies and the latest IT infrastructure. 

An avid competitive sport and outdoors fan, Jens can usually be found outdoors doing something active! 

Paul Kiesskalt


Paul offers close to 15 years’ experience with the company, making his product knowledge unbeatable. Paul can boast of wearing a number of hats throughout his time here, including Logistics Manager, Operations Manager, Assembly Guru and now the Product Planner. 

So long as Paul has a cup of coffee in his hand, he’ll be wearing a smile and doesn’t let anything phase him – an inspiration to us all!
