The new Melbourne location adds to the company?s existing Sydney, Newcastle and Queanbeyan sales centres. Semco?s Satch Santilli said the addition of a Victorian location was driven by the company?s growth from sales in its key products, including Takeuchi excavators and rubber track loaders as well as Terex backhoe loaders.
?After serving the needs of customers for 20 years in the New South Wales and regional markets, it?s clear we have a winning formula based on our leading equipment brands, well-honed customer support and accumulated knowledge of specialist applications,? Santilli said.
?We can no longer ignore the needs of the Victorian market which represents a significant percentage of the construction, earthmoving, council, roads and infrastructure industries.
?Strong sales within our Takeuchi and Terex ranges of equipment have prompted us to open a Semco branch in Melbourne and we have already had success in selling a number of Takeuchi machines to local Melbourne customers.
?The Melbourne branch was an easy decision for us to make as it is a region we have been servicing previously, with some of our other ranges of equipment such as Fiori mobile batching plants and dump trucks.?
The Somerton location was selected after careful consideration for easy road access for its customers and space for equipment demonstration, pre-sale preparation and service.
Semco?s Victorian manager is Stuart Marriott, who has relocated from the Semco St Mary?s headquarters, where he was a territory manager as well as Takeuchi product manager, a role he will continue from his Melbourne base.
?The move to open Semco Equipment Sales in Melbourne is a great challenge and I?m really looking forward to working with local equipment owners to help make their businesses more productive,? Marriott said.
