Toyota Industrial Equipment 's South Australian forklift distributorship has a new name and an all-encompassing product range.
On 28 April, Prolift Toyota passed the distributorship baton to Toyota Material Handling (SA) Pty Ltd as the official distributor for Toyota, the BT Lift Truck product range, and Raymond industrial equipment in South Australia.
The new company is headquartered in the previous Prolift Toyota premises at 83 Gavan Road, Gepps Cross, South Australia, 5094.
The distributorship change in South Australia comes six months after a similar change in Victoria.
On 9 December, Prolift Toyota passed the distributorship baton to Toyota Material Handling (Vic) Pty Ltd as the official distributor for Toyota and Raymond industrial equipment in Victoria.
In addition, Toyota Material Handling (Vic) has integrated the BT Lift Truck product range into its portfolio.
Toyota Industries Corporation Australia (TICA) president and chief executive officer Steve Harper said the two new companies are now one-stop shops for material handling equipment.
He says they offer South Australian and Victorian customers industry leading sales and customer support service across all product ranges.
Mr. Harper believes that Toyota Material Handling (SA) and Toyota Material Handling (Vic) have the facilities and experience to support customers of all Toyota Industrial Equipment, BT and Raymond products.
Toyota Material Handling (Vic) operates from two locations in the Melbourne metro area.
Facilities at the former Prolift Toyota premises at 712 Geelong Rd, Brooklyn Vic 3025 have been redesigned whilst the former BT head office in Dandenong at 1/205 Abbotts Road Dandenong South, VIC 3164 has been significantly expanded by the addition of a second Customer Service workshop to bring the site area to just under 6,000m2.
The redesigned Brooklyn and expanded Dandenong facility are part of Toyota Material Handling's commitment to raising the level of total customer care and satisfaction to a new benchmark for Victoria.
