One­trak cel­e­brates re-open­ing in WA

Australian Forests and Timber - - In The News -

Ken MacDon­ald, owner and CEO of Cana­dian forestry equip­ment man­u­fac­turer Tiger­cat, and the team of Aus­tralian crush­ing and screen­ing man­u­fac­turer Striker joined One­trak staff and cus­tomers in cel­e­brat­ing the re-open­ing of One­trak in Western Australia.

“Striker was pleased to at­tend the One­trak Bun­bury WA open day and to see so many of our loyal cus­tomers visit and in­spect the full range of prod­ucts on of­fer. We are proud to be as­so­ci­ated with a com­pany like One­trak who are driven to succeed in the con­struc­tion equip­ment in­dus­try with brands like ours,” said Neil McKenna, Striker Australia Busi­ness De­vel­op­ment & Dealer Man­ager.

The event was held at One­trak on 8 Wal­lis Road, in Daven­port. It was also an oc­ca­sion to cel­e­brate the launch of new prod­uct lines, such as Hidromek con­struc­tion equip­ment. The One­trak yard was tem­po­rar­ily turned into an equip­ment demon­stra­tion site where cus­tomers were given the op­por­tu­nity to drive and test a range of equip­ment in­clud­ing a Hidromek ex­ca­va­tor and back­hoe loader, Tiger­cat skid­der and Dressta dozer. A Striker jaw crusher was also on static dis­play dur­ing the event.

“We would like to thank all cus­tomers who showed in­ter­est in and at­tended the func­tion. Our staff based in the Bun­bury and Al­bany re­gions have taken One­trak to a new level and we’re ex­cited to see what the fu­ture holds with the ad­di­tion of the new brands to our prod­uct port­fo­lio,” said Hen­drik Visser, One­trak Re­gional Man­ager WA.

“I was very im­pressed with the qual­ity of the Back­hoe es­pe­cially the plat­ing and weld­ing, com­pared to some of the other makes. I will be or­gan­is­ing a demo with this ma­chine in the new year. The func­tion was also very nice,” said David Cain, PLC Earth­mov­ing.

“It was fan­tas­tic to be able to cel­e­brate the open­ing of the larger One­trak Bun­bury fa­cil­ity with cus­tomers, sup­pli­ers and staff. One­trak has com­mit­ted to the South Western re­gion of WA in a sig­nif­i­cant way with this larger pur­pose built fa­cil­ity in Bun­bury,” said David Hazell, One­trak Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor.

“We have sev­eral new field service trucks with well­trained service tech­ni­cians, a large in­vest­ment in parts in­ven­tory plus new brands such as Striker crush­ing and screen­ing, Hidromek con­struc­tion equip­ment and Terex Fuchs ma­te­rial han­dlers to com­ple­ment our al­ready sig­nif­i­cant in­vest­ment in the Tiger­cat forestry equip­ment range and Dressta dozer range.

“We wanted to let the broader mar­ket in WA know that One­trak is here to stay and ready to work with our mul­ti­ple cus­tomers in the key mar­ket seg­ments of forestry, con­struc­tion, quar­ries / min­eral pro­cess­ing and in­dus­trial ma­te­rial han­dling,” David said.

“I was very im­pressed with the Tiger­cat forestry ma­chines and the changes they have made to the cab as well as the hy­draulic sys­tem. I was also very sur­prised to see the qual­ity of the new Hidromek ma­chines that One­trak is the dealer for. It was a well-or­gan­ised and en­joy­able event,” said David Hughan, Plan­ta­tion Log­ging.

In 10 years One­trak has grown from a sin­gle con­struc­tion equip­ment fran­chise in Brighton, Tas­ma­nia, and ex­tended its reach into the earth­mov­ing, forestry, quarry and min­ing and ma­te­rial han­dling in­dus­tries. To­day,One­trak has a na­tional net­work of out­lets in Western Australia, Vic­to­ria, South Australia, New South Wales, Queens­land and Tas­ma­nia. In ad­di­tion to new and used ma­chines sales, parts and service, One­trak of­fers rental ma­chines and at­tach­ments. The brand port­fo­lio now in­cludes world renowned brands such as Hyundai con­struc­tion equip­ment, Hidromek con­struc­tion equip­ment, Tiger­cat forestry equip­ment, Dressta doz­ers, Striker crush­ing and screen­ing equip­ment and Fuchs ma­te­rial han­dlers. The at­tach­ments range in­cludes Ro­to­bec, Satco, Fu­rukawa and Ali­con.
