Longstanding Australian company Kanga Loaders has been recognised by a high-ranking industry award for one of its flagship developments, the D800R remote control skid steer loader.
This new technology received a highly commended accreditation at the recent Manufacturers’ Monthly Endeavour 2007 Awards in the category of Innovative Product of the year – Industrial
General Manager of Sales and Marketing for Kanga Loaders, Lars Ottosson, says the company is not only proud to have received such an award, is a fitting tribute to the organisation’s drive and dedication to design and manufacture such an equipment so it ranks top in the list especially in relation to OH&S in the workplace.
"For several years now, Kanga has disciplined itself to manufacture all products with a high level of accuracy and quality through what we our own level of ‘advanced engineering’," said Ottosson.
"To have the D800R publicly recognised as one of the most innovative industrial products of the last 12 months is an honour to the company as well as a third-party certification that this remote-control technology is world-class.
“With more stringent OH&S rules continuing to emerge at a time when there is a shortage of manual labour, this remote control skid steer loader fits in perfectly as a viable solution, especially in top end industries such as mining and extractive, construction and public works.
"And the fact the Kanga manufactures all its technologies to such high levels of engineering accuracy says loud and clear to all Australian industries that our products are among the very best in it which they can invest.”
“Under the Jaden Kanga Group, we are fast becoming recognised as Australia’s leading designer, producer and supplier of mini skid steer loaders to the world.”
“But being based domestically also means that spare parts supply lines and technical support is virtually instant compared to the responses by some of our competitors which are based overseas.
“Having produced the world’s first ever mini skid steer loader more than 20 years ago, the company has been responsible for changing the face of workplaces around the world with superior design, innovation and quality.
“Our mission statement alone says that through innovation, research and development and the highest quality standards, we can offer industrial markets superior equipment to complete required tasks in an efficient, safe and timely manner.”
