Agrifac opens new QLD branch Claas makes 500,000th Lexion
Aussie sprayer maker is anticipating a sales boom
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.
