Haulotte Australia capped off their 25 years in Australia celebrations with two awards at the Hire Industry Excellence Awards at the recent HIRE24 event in Brisbane. They have again received Supplier of the Year - Access and were awarded Best New Product for their latest innovation FASTN. The awards were presented during the awards night which was the culmination of several events throughout the week including an exhibition and an exclusive customer dinner with those that have been part of Haulotte’s 25 year journey so far in Australia.

General Manager for Haulotte Australia Keith Clarke was in attendance and accepted the Supplier of the Year award.

“I am beyond proud of the whole Haulotte team to be acknowledged as Supplier of the Year for Access. They do an amazing job and work so hard to deliver the best customer service possible. Its an honor to receive this award on our 25th Anniversary in Australia”.

In addition Haulotte was awarded Best New Product in the Access Category for FASTN, a new harness detection system that visually and audibly alerts operators and surrounding personnel if a harness is not being used correctly. The feedback from the judges was overwhelmingly positive, and commented that the safety benefits of this system were going to make a huge impact on the industry.
 
 

Accepting the award was Julien Micheli from Haulotte Asia-Pacific who spoke about the importance of Australia to Haulotte.

"The acknowledgement is a great pleaser, great value and of great meaning to us to receive awards from Australia. We are committed to safety and innovation."
Haulotte showcased their latest technology during the two day HIRE24 exhibition including FASTN, The new booms HA20 RTJ and HA16 E. Plus Compact 12, Optimum 8 and Star 8S.
“There was great interest in the machines this year in particular the HA16 E with FASTN fitted. It is the first time it has been seen in Australia and several customers placed orders on the spot”, adds Keith.


FASTN is the first universal & active anchorage for MEWPs.




Haulotte also took the time to thank their valued customers with a special dinner and celebrate their 25th year in Australia.

During the evening Keith took the time to thank the customers for their ongoing support and to announce that Haulotte will be moving to a new larger premise in Brisbane. The new facility at Crestmead is located close the major highways and is a much larger facility with 4500 square meters, including 1750 square meters of dedicated building space, a substantial upgrade from the current Coopers Plains location.


Keith Clarke expressed enthusiasm about the move, “One of the most significant advantages of the new facility is its increased capacity, providing ample hard stand space to accommodate more machines for the Queensland market. The expanded footprint allows for enhanced repair and maintenance capabilities, addressing the growing demand for quality service by our trained experts”.




Furthermore, the relocation presents an exciting opportunity to undertake comprehensive 10-year refurbishments on Elevated Work Platforms (EWPs), ensuring the utmost safety and reliability for clients.


Keith Clarke emphasized the importance of these refurbishments, highlighting their role in prolonging equipment lifespan and maintaining peak performance.

“Our team of seven in Brisbane are very keen to get into the expanded space to broaden their capabilities. As the Queensland hire industry continues to thrive, fueled by ongoing infrastructure projects, we are committed to support the industry with machines, service and spare parts”.
