The move further cements Cargotec Australia’s strategic objective to be the leader in the load handling market, encompassing exclusive sales and after-sales distributor rights.
“The company’s market prospects are stronger than ever, and this long term association with Unic will serve to further strengthen Cargotec’s already dominant market position by adding another quality product to its line-up,” said Peter McLean, vice president of Cargotec Australia. “Unic complements Cargotec’s other products, creating a comprehensive range of solutions for our customers.”
As part of the co-operative, Cargotec will work closely with Unic to provide all the required local engineering and product support through its extensive service network.
“Cargotec’s national network, including superior service and support through strategically located national branches and dealerships, gives customer’s the highest level of confidence in their investment,” McLean added.
As part of the agreement Cargotec will no longer sell or support the Unic Mini Crawler. All sales and service queries for the Mini Crawler should now be directed to Gleason Cranes Australia at Unit 2/65 Derrimut Drive, Derrimut, VIC 3030. Phone: (03) 9394 1777
According to Unic director Sam Miyazaki, the engineering and service professionalism provided by Cargotec was a major factor influencing the decision to sign the exclusive distributor agreement.
“Cargotec’s product offering and service and engineering capabilities are an obvious fit with Unic’s long term growth strategy,” Miyazaki remarked.
