TRT new Hiab dis­trib­u­tor

New Zealand Truck & Driver - - News -

GLOBAL ROAD TRANS­PORT LOAD HAN­DLING equip­ment gi­ant Hiab has cho­sen Tidd Ross Todd (TRT) as the new ex­clu­sive New Zealand dis­trib­u­tor for its en­tire prod­uct range.

‚e Hamil­ton-head­quar­tered TRT took over from NZ Trucks in late Novem­ber as the sole dis­trib­u­tor of Hiab cranes, Ze­pro tail-lifts, Mul­tilift de­mount­a­bles and skipload­ers, Jon­sered log and re­cy­cling cranes and MoŸett truck-mounted fork­lifts.

Hiab says that its new dis­tri­bu­tion ar­range­ment has been made “in or­der to serve our cur­rent loyal Hiab cus­tomer base and new cus­tomers in the best pos­si­ble way in the NZ mar­ket.”

‚e agree­ment, it says, “sup­ports Hiab’s goal of ex­pand­ing its mar­ket in NZ and en­sur­ing our cus­tomers are our num­ber one pri­or­ity.”

TRT has been a lead­ing player in NZ’s crane and man­u­fac­tur­ing sec­tor for over 50 years. It has four busi­ness di­vi­sions – cranes, man­u­fac­tur­ing (in­clud­ing heavy trans­port trail­ers), truck and trailer parts and ser­vice – “and is ide­ally placed to man­age Hiab’s dis­tri­bu­tion in NZ,” says Hiab.

It has a com­pre­hen­sive, na­tion­wide sales and ser­vice net­work and Hiab says that a key part of TRT’s role will be stock­ing gen­uine after­mar­ket parts and sup­port­ing na­tion­wide Œtting 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,” says Steve Coo­nan – Hiab’s head of sales and ser­vice, SEA and im­porter mar­kets.

“‚is part­ner­ship will give NZ busi­nesses ac­cess to spe­cial­ist ad­vice, equip­ment and main­te­nance – all from one com­pany at mul­ti­ple lo­ca­tions,” he adds.

TRT engi­neer­ing di­rec­tor Robert Car­den says the com­pany is “com­mit­ted to a seam­less, fo­cused ser­vice for Hiab cus­tomers.”

TRT chief op­er­a­tions o£cer Lawrence Baker says that the Hiab dis­tri­bu­tion part­ner­ship “con­tin­ues to build on our growth and aligns per­fectly with our over­all busi­ness strat­egy.”
