New Zealand–based OEM, Tidd Ross Todd (TRT), has entered an agreement to distribute Hiab materials handling equipment and provide aftermarket support.
TRT has a comprehensive, nationwide sales and service network in New Zealand and will be the country’s sole distributor of Hiab cranes, Zepro tail lifts, Multilift demountables and skiploaders, Jonsered log cranes and recycling cranes and Moffett truck-mounted forklifts.
A key part of the delivery, according to TRT, will be stocking genuine aftermarket parts and supporting nationwide fitting agents and service outlets.
“TRT has an experienced team with the internal systems and structures in place to manage all aspects of our distribution and maintenance,” said Hiab Head of Sales and Service SEA and Importer Markets, Steve Coonan.
“This partnership will give NZ businesses access to specialist advice, equipment and maintenance all from one company at multiple locations,” he said.
TRT Engineering Director, Robert Carden, will be leading the integration. “We are committed to a seamless, focused service for Hiab customers,” he said.
TRT Chief Operations Officer, Lawrence Baker, has also played an integral role in the distribution deal. “The Hiab distribution partnership continues to build on our growth and aligns perfectly with our overall business strategy,” he said.
