FRM Materials Handling, in business in Invermay, Tasmania for the last 30 years, will deal specifically with Manitou?s rough terrain handling range and Gehl compact equipment range of skid steer loaders, track loaders and articulated loaders.
FRM has a strong branch network in Tasmania located in Launceston, Hobart and Devonport. Manitou Australia has said it will benefit from the partnership by reinforcing its position in Tasmania, enabling it to reach new potential customers.
David Mills, sales and business manager of the FRM network, sees the partnership with Manitou as an opportunity to enter new markets, due to the extensive range of products. He cited the MX rough terrain forklifts and MLT telehandler ranges as key products.
?These products, mixed with our current range of equipment, now enable FRM to hone in on the building, agriculture, horticulture, forestry and infrastructure industries to complete coverage of their equipment needs,? Mills said.
FRM backs the equipment with comprehensive parts stock and statewide service capabilities offering.
