About Us

For the best quality, service and knowledge.

CM Trailer Parts have provided the best quality components to the light trailer building industry in New Zealand since 1992.

CM Trailer Parts is proud to carry the “CM” name and to have been able to continue to build on an already excellent reputation for supplying quality products for boat trailers, vehicle transporters, domestic trailers and commercial trailers. This is backed up by our comprehensive knowledge and customer service.

The journey that brought us to where we are today began in 1988, when Alasdair and James came together to establish the company Component and Accessories Limited (known as “Compac”). In 1992 they purchased CM Landrover Spares from Colin & Linda Millichamp. With the merge of these two companies it was decided to change the name. Sadly, not long after selling CM Landrover Spares, Colin Millichamp was killed on his new deer farm. Out of respect for Colin, Alasdair and James made the decision to retain the “CM” name. CM Spares - Engineering Supplies division and CM Spares - Trailer Parts division were born. The two businesses relocated in 1993 to share premises in Moore Street. Both companies rapidly expanded and in 1998 Mark Havis joined the team as Sales Manager and then later became a partner in the Company.

James further developed the Trailer Parts division which soon after moved to separate premises, a larger building along the street, and the Companies were separated with James and Mark managing CM Trailer Parts and Alasdair managing the CM Engineering Supplies.

In 2007 CM Engineering Supplies was sold and Alasdair joined Mark and James at CM Trailer Parts. Early 2008 saw the move to where we are today… in a purpose built building at 15 Range Street, Ashburton.

The current team of 16 pride themselves on their comprehensive knowledge of our quality trailer products and excellent service!!




In 2018, we commenced an exciting new era in the company’s history when we were acquired by DexKo Global.

About DexKo Global.

DexKo Global Inc was formed at the end of 2015 combining Dexter, a leading designer and manufacturer of trailer axles, brakes and related components in North America and AL-KO Vehicle Technology (“VT”), a European designer and manufacturer of trailer axles, trailer and caravan components, chassis and motorized chassis. The combination of these two companies create a global leader in the trailer axle and chassis supply industry with over 130 years of trailer and caravan componentry experience and sales approaching nearly $1 billion.

The image that we have built for ourselves over decades makes us the contact in all our business fields today. With our strong brands, we are one of the designers of the mobile future. That makes us attractive to employees, beginners and professionals, who want to move things with AL-KO and take on responsibility. We're constantly reinventing ourselves, we're always moving forward.
