Porter Group has been appointed Sandvik agent for its range of mobile crushing and screening equipment in Western Australia in a move that further cements the multi-faceted machinery supplier as a comprehensive force representing a variety of brands right across the continent.
“We've been very proud to be associated with the Sandvik brand in New Zealand since 2009,” says Darren Ralph, general manager sales and marketing at Porter Group.
“Through dedication and hard work on our team's part, we've built a solid reputation in New Zealand as the go-to guys for Sandvik mobile crushing and screening hardware.
“Adding the large and varied Western Australian region presents a great opportunity for us and serves to illustrate the close association the Porter Group has built with Sandvik over time.”
With Western Australia playing host to a multitude of quarrying, mining and recycling operations, it is said that Sandvik's extensive model lines and robust reputation will prove a solid fit for many applications.
The appointment of Porter Group to distribute Sandvik also ties in seamlessly with the company's existing distributorship of Terex articulated dump trucks and Hyundai's large range of excavators and wheel loaders in other regions of Australia.
Sandvik's mobile crushing and screening range offers operators a comprehensive choice of heavy duty machinery, including jaw, cone and impact crushers.
The Sandvik screening range encompasses an extensive range of sizing and scalping screens, including the world’s only range of tracked Doublescreens.
“The move into Western Australia is a natural progression for Porter Group as a distributor in the Australasian region,” says Ralph.
“It gives us the ability to further our reputation as the trusted provider of true end-to-end supply, service and finance partnerships for industries on both sides of the Tasman.”
