Self-pro­pelled sprayer man­u­fac­turer Agri­fac has opened a new branch at Jondaryan in Queens­land, is ex­pand­ing its Aus­tralian head of­fice in Perth, and has ap­pointed Mark Slater as its new gen­eral man­ager for Aus­tralia.

Slater will lead a team of seven work­ing from two lo­ca­tions at Mid­vale in Western Aus­tralia and at Jondaryan in Queens­land. The Jondaryan fa­cil­ity was re­quired due to the con­tin­ued growth of the com­pany and the need for an ad­di­tional branch to ser­vice the eastern states.

It is lo­cated half­way between Toowoomba and Dalby in the Dar­ling Downs, and the new fa­cil­ity of­fers good ac­cess to all ar­eas in Queens­land and north­ern New South Wales.

Agri­fac Aus­tralia’s Mid­vale branch has been op­er­at­ing for 12 months and is un­der­go­ing ren­o­va­tions to dou­ble the size of its of­fice, parts and work­shop fa­cil­ity, which should be com­plete by Christ­mas this year.

Slater is con­fi­dent the sales of Agri­fac Con­dor self-pro­pelled sprayers will mul­ti­ply in the years ahead.

“There are 20 Con­dor and Con­dor En­durance self-pro­pelled sprayers run­ning in Aus­tralia and an­other five Con­dors in New Zealand,” Sal­ter says.

“We be­lieve that we will at least dou­ble these num­bers in the next 18 months and we want to be ready for our new cus­tomers.”

Agri­fac works with two Aus­tralian deal­ers – Bu­rando Hill in WA and YP AG in South Aus­tralia – along with its ser­vice part­ners, Josh Stoner Ag Diesel Re­pairs in Jondaryan for the eastern states and Julien Coles PTS AG in Esper­ance, WA.
