Toyota establish presence in Tasmania

Toyota Materials Handling Australia (TMHA) has set up a new branch in Tasmania to better support its customers in the region.

The move follows two branch openings– one in Townsville and another in Darwin earlier this year, further confirming the company’s commitment to local customers.

The new TMHA Tasmania branch in Launceston offers the full Toyota Material Handling range of Toyota, BT Lift Truck and Raymond forklift products, as well as Toyota’s Huski skid-steer loader range.

The branch is located at Connector Park, Kinds Meadows.

TMHA Tasmanian Branch Sales Manager Rob Cornwell says Tasmania now has a dedicated team to provide pallet handling solutions with direct manufacturer’s support, instead of going through an independent dealer.

“We’re already operational with sales and service, including service vans based in Hobart and Devonport, plus an area sales manager Rod Jones, who is also Hobart based, enhancing the support of our new Launceston branch,” he says.

TMHA Branch Operations General Manager Cameron Paxton says establishing a direct presence in Tasmania is very beneficial to customers.

“We can now offer dedicated field support as well as a fully equipped service facility capable of handling all jobs,” he says.

“The move to factory-owned branches is consistent with our strategy to deal directly with customers,” he adds.

“We will now be able to offer direct service, and better access to our national stock of equipment, parts and short-term rental units.”

TMHA estimates at least 3000 Toyota forklifts are in operation in Tasmania.
