Komatsu Forklift commences direct operations in Australia

On 1 August, Komatsu Forklift Australia Pty Ltd officially opened its doors across Australia. It is Komatsu Forklift’s first factory-owned distribution company in its 56 years of producing forklifts. The materials handling company Red Australia was purchased in April this year by Komatsu Ltd, Japan, adding to its global mining, earthmoving and forklift family.
Komatsu Forklift Australia’s 11 branches are strategically positioned throughout Australia providing the market with a complete sales, hire, service and parts package.
Shaun O’Brien, national sales and marketing manager for Komatsu Forklift Australia said: “The Australian market will be introduced to a wider range of Komatsu equipment. The market can expect a couple of exciting product launches over the next couple of months.
“Our product range also includes PM truck mounted cranes, Kevrek cranes and Baumann Sideloaders,” Shaun said. “The team is very proud to be apart of the global brand with an enthusiastic vibe around the branches.”
Over the coming months the Komatsu brand will be noticed on the road as the new mobile service vehicles cross town, the strong Komatsu blue will be positioned on the branch buildings and information will be convenient to access through the new website:
