Skyreach expands in Sydney

By Helen Wright28 July 2014

Australian access equipment rental company Skyreach has expanded in Sydney with the opening of two new branches.

The company said the new offices were in Brookvale and Kemps Creek, with the Brookvale location forming the head office for Skyreach in New South Wales (NSW).

Skyreach said this site was well placed to service the central Sydney market as well as the bourgeoning northern metropolitan area. It has appointed Malcolm Allan to head up the Skyreach NSW operation.

Mr Allan said, “Skyreach is an impressive operation poised to experience exceptional growth in the NSW market. The potential is huge.

"The strength of Skyreach is that we are able to draw on a massive pool of equipment located in both Brisbane and Melbourne. When needed, we can bring in equipment overnight on our own truck fleet.”

Prior to joining Skyreach, Mr Allan was with the On-Site Rental Group in the position of product manager for access for the eastern region of NSW.

Meanwhile, Skyreach managing director Rod Leech said, “We have been in the Sydney market for many years. In line with the growing demands of our Sydney and NSW customer base, we believe that the time is right to take a higher profile in Sydney with an expanded access fleet and bigger premises to support the market.

“We also recognise that the Sydney market is on the cusp of massive growth. We are about to see substantial projects which will place heavy demand on infrastructure, the likes of which has not been seen since the Sydney Olympics.”

The company said these projects included the Birrangaroo development, Holsworthy ADF expansion and Sydney Convention Centre redevelopment at Darling Harbour.
