The relationship between Porter Group and Sandvik was initially formed in New Zealand and dates back to 2009.
Porter Group already had the distribution rights for Sandvik mobile plant in Western Australia. It has been the WA dealer for the product for nearly a year.
Established in 1945, the Porter Group has more than 50 retail locations across New Zealand, Australia, Papua New Guinea and the United States. In addition to the Sandvik mobile plant, the company distributes Hyundai Construction Equipment, ASV, Terex Trucks, Furukawa, Madill and NC Engineering products for the quarrying, mining, recycling, landfill, forestry, industrial and agricultural sectors.
As part of this new arrangement with Sandvik, Porter Group has also been appointed as the mobile distributor for Papua New Guinea and surrounding islands.
“The latest extension of the Sandvik relationship is an important progression for the brand in the region,” Darren Ralph, general manager of Porter Equipment Australasia said. “Sandvik mobiles are global leaders in technology and productivity and this development will ensure that the product is brought to the customer base efficiently. We aim to provide Sandvik mobiles with a platform to propel the brand to new heights in Australia.”
A statement from Sandvik Rock & Technology indicated that the collaboration with Porter Group is in line with its commercial ambitions to develop its presence in the Australasian mobile plant market.
“We are pleased to appoint Porter Group as the [Sandvik] mobiles distributor for the Australian market,” Joe McCormack, the area sales manager for Sandvik Mobile Crushers and Screens said. “Our relationship with Porter Group has grown successfully over the years and we are delighted to extend our agreement to include the whole of the Australian territory.”
