Genie Australia has supplied a range of access equipment to Tutt Bryant Group, a diverse equipment sales and hire company.
The group’s general hire division, Tutt Bryant Hire operates throughout Australia with the Queensland group of locations amongst the strongest performing under the corporate umbrella.
Tutt Bryant Hire entered the Queensland market via the acquisition of Paramount Hire, and has since established a state-wide network operating regional offices in Cairns, Townsville, Mackay, Dysart and Gladstone.
The Queensland operation is headquartered in the Cairns office where according to Julian Laws — General Manager Northern Regions, approximately 25 to 30% of turnover is attributed to the mining sector.
As a company policy, Tutt Bryant Hire ensures that no single segment accounts for more than 25% of the company’s activity. So whilst mining remains strong in the current cycle, Tutt Bryant Hire is also an energetic player in the agriculture, manufacturing, tourism and infrastructure market segments.
Genie is a key supplier to Tutt Bryant Hire. With more than 200 access units in the Tutt Bryant Hire fleet in Queensland, the spread of equipment reflects the diverse markets serviced.
Tutt Bryant Hire has recently taken delivery of a Genie Z135 boom lift, specifically ordered to meet a customer’s need. Julian Laws picks out reliability as a key strength of the Genie brand. A large part of their equipment is hired out to work sites that at times wreak havoc on lesser equipment. However, Genie’s access equipment is not only compliant with tough regulations but also reliable, minimising downtime especially in remote locations.
Julian Laws also appreciates the support received from Genie in terms of training programs along with qualified service technicians at each branch.
