Toyota Material Handling (SA) has continued its support for the South Australian Road Transport Association (SARTA) by providing a newly-released Toyota 8-Series forklift for auction at the Association's recent annual dinner.
TMH (SA) was a Gold Sponsor recently of a dinner that drew 500 guests, including South Australian Minister for Transport Patrick Conlon.
The winning bid for the Toyota 8-Series forklift came from Neil Collins, Operations Manager of Adelaide-based Collins Transport and a loyal Toyota customer.
The one-day event was held at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre and also included a conference.
The conference and dinner provided TMH (SA) with an opportunity to further extend ties with SARTA and to continue its support for the not-for-profit road transport association.
TMH (SA) was represented at the dinner by Regional General Manager Hamish Harper, State Sales Manager Peter Oates, Area Sales Managers Paul Warburton, Paul Bennett and Stuart Campbell, and Sales Trainee Ben Lucas.
State Sales Manager Peter Oates was pleased with the exposure provided by SARTA's annual gathering.
"We are proud to continue to support SARTA's efforts as a not-for-profit organisation. The conference and dinner have cemented the Toyota name within the trucking industry.”
"The day provided us with the ideal target audience, and it was the first time we have had so many key people from this industry under the same roof," Mr Oates said.
In its ninety-ninth year, SARTA is recognised as a major industry body for road transport in South Australia.
SARTA represents the general industry when lobbying the Government for improved conditions on and off the road over issues ranging from driving hours, reforms, routes and access.
The SARTA also plays a key role in industrial relations at State and Federal levels.
