Below the hook equipment manufacturer Modulift has signed Maxirig as a distributor in Australia.
Maxirig will stock the full Modulift range of standard modular spreader beams at its Victorian headquarters and throughout its distributor network. Its customer base includes mining, construction, manufacturing, oil and gas, among other sectors. The headquarters are in Breakwater, a suburb of Geelong which is enjoying a construction boom.
Manufacturing to order and shipping product from the UK to Australia means complications and long lead times. With a stock of standard spreader beams up to 100 tonnes in capacity, Maxirig will be able to quickly respond and deliver.
Sarah Spivey, Modulift managing director, said, “It is well documented that execution of our business model and growth strategy is reliant upon our diligence in choosing the right regional representatives and the extent to which we can support them as they deliver our products to their local marketplaces. In Maxirig I’m confident that we have secured a partner that can help us make significant strides in a far-afield, but hugely important, market.”
Nathan Van Berkel, Maxirig general manager, said, “We’re excited about taking delivery of the first batch of stock, which represents an important moment for our existing and prospective customers looking for spreader beams and below-the-hook solutions for their varied applications. Modulift’s equipment is already renowned in the region but being able to offer it as an off-the-shelf rigging solution is a game-changer for the marketplace.”
