About bUTE Trays


bUTE Trays and Accessories is 100% Australian owned and operated. Based in Bendigo, we have been proudly manufacturing steel trays in Regional Victoria for more than 20 years.

Our entire team, lead by owner Colin Hofton, are committed to delivering a superior product and outstanding customer service.

Now rebranded as “bUTE TOTAL TRAY SOLUTIONS” our objective is to become your ultimate tray supplier. By expanding our range of product and services, we now offer both steel and aluminium trays and canopies at a much better quality than imported versions.

Our Silver Series range are our most popular. They come fully welded featuring a mandrel bent headboard with your choice of mesh or bars for window protection. Fully welded one-piece mud guards and removable corner posts come standard, complete with drop sides and your choice of catches. Our Gold Series range offers the same inclusions with the addition of a fully contoured front panel, custom look window protection and reinforced side tie rails for added strength.

All our products come sandblasted, zinc primed and powder coated. This results in a hardwearing quality finish in a range of matching or contrasting colours, all done inhouse! We also build toolboxes, under tray sliding drawers, dog boxes, ladder racks, canvas framework, water tanks and much, much more! At bUTE you can now purchase a total work package for your new or used utility vehicle, in one friendly location. We look forward to assisting you with your requirements.
