On February 12th, Haulotte Australia inaugurated its new office on the southeast side of Melbourne, Victoria. The new modern facility follows increased demand for Haulotte machines in Australia and New Zealand. It provides more than 118400 square feet of work space for its 50 employees.
The new subsidiary is 3 times the size of the old facility and holds a broad selection of Haulotte mobile elevating work platforms and telehandlers to quickly respond to customers’ critical business requirements. The extra space will allow Haulotte Australia Pty Ltd to grow its business and improve its service offer. The large parts department will speed up delivery times, increasing the subsidiary’s efficiency and allow for future growth in its parts holding. The building also includes training facilities to enhance customers’ skills and promote the safe use of its equipment.
The official ribbon-cutting ceremony took place with Haulotte corporate governance in attendance. “This inauguration marks a new chapter and emphasizes our commitment and confidence in the Australian powered access market” says Alexandre Saubot, CEO of Haulotte Group. “We cannot be happier: the new facility will allow us to better cater to our customers’ logistical needs” adds Keith Clarke, General manager of the Australian subsidiary.
