Leading crane manufacturing and servicing company Konecranes has moved to new premises in Auckland to better service the requirements of its expanding customer base throughout New Zealand.
Konecranes’ New Zealand branch is now based at 6D Henderson Place, Penrose, Auckland 1061 in one of the premier industrial locations in the city.
According to Business Development Manager James McAllister, the move to a centralised industrial location was made to enhance accessibility to their customers in addition to upgrading their current capabilities.
The NZ branch has seven employees including four very experienced crane technicians with extensive working knowledge of crane technology. Three of the technicians are on the road most of the time, servicing and maintaining customers’ cranes.
The NZ branch has over 1500 cranes under maintenance agreement.
Mr McAllister says that Konecranes’ offer of complete maintenance solutions to their customers gives them a major advantage over other crane providers.
Konecranes is able to offer all companies, large or small complete maintenance programs covering preventative maintenance, spare parts, modernisation and new crane design through to replacement parts for all major crane brands.
One of the world’s largest crane service organisations, Konecranes has over 373,000 cranes under service contracts globally.
Konecranes industrial cranes and hoists are used by many industries including automotive production, energy and resources, manufacturing, metal and mineral processing, primary product and paper processing as well as ports and infrastructure projects.
Konecranes Australasia’s National Sales and Marketing Manager Warren Ashton says that the expanded Auckland branch would provide further crane manufacturing, safety and service innovations for New Zealand.
Konecranes has launched an audit service in Australasia drawing on its global CRS programme to help industries determine whether their overhead lifting equipment achieves optimum reliability, performance and mandatory safety standards.
