Telestack restructures Aus distributor network

Telestack, a maker of mobile bulk material handling systems, has completed the restructuring of its Australian distribution network, which now covers all parts of the country.

OPS Screening and Crushing Equipment will cover Western Australia, the Northern Territory and South Australia. Based in Kewdale, WA, OPS has “already significantly increased our market share in a relatively short space of time”, Telestack says, adding that it is well positioned to serve the needs of these territories, especially in the iron ore mines and sea ports.

On the east coast, Tricon Equipment will cover Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria, building on Telestack’s existing presence in the region’s coal mines, quarries and ports.

Telestack positions its range of mobile material handlers used in the ‘pit to port’ logistics chain as a ‘very credible’ alternative to wheel loaders, haul trucks, mobile harbour cranes and stationary/semi mobile conveyors.

Its range covers ship loaders/unloaders, radial telescopic stackers, tracked stockpiling conveyors, truck unloaders, link conveyors, mobile ‘reclaim’ hoppers, hopper feeders and tracked telescopic conveyors.

“Our proven track record of handling heavy ores, coal, pet coke aggregates, grains, fertilizers, biomass, and so on, has helped us gain acceptance as a proven, cost effective and reliable alternative to the traditional ways of handling materials,” the company says.

Telestack products are certified to ISO 9001:2008 and are manufactured to Australian structural and electrical standards.

The company’s equipment has been used for stacking and reclaiming iron ore and coal by mining companies including BHP Billiton, Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance, Fortescue, Rio Tinto, Territory Resources and Xstrata. It’s also being used in seaports as an alternative method of loading and unloading vessels, and by ports, steel mills, power stations, cement plants, quarries and the like.

Telestack  says the equipment can be used as a stand-alone primary material handling system or “to support existing stacker/reclaimer systems in times of planned maintenance, emergency breakdowns or for additional throughput”.
