Putzmeister America, Inc. Establishes Australia LocationSTURTEVANT, WI (Oct. 19, 2011) – Putzmeister America, Inc., in partnership with long-term Putzmeister distributor, Concrete Pumping Equipment, Aust, Pty. Limited (CPE), announce the establishment of Putzmeister Australia for the sale and service of new and pre-owned Putzmeister concrete pumps and Telebelt® telescopic belt conveyors in Australia.
In early 2011, Putzmeister America assumed responsibility for Australia, New Zealand and Oceania from its parent company, Putzmeister Concrete Pumps GmBH.
“The Australian market opens up a lot of opportunity for Putzmeister,” says Dave Adams president and CEO of Putzmeister America. “We have had a great relationship with CPE over the past several decades and have confidence in our new partnership. We feel now is the right time to work on strengthening even further the Putzmeister brand in Australia.”
Putzmeister Australia will be headquartered in Melbourne. To be constructed in early 2012, Putzmeister Australia’s new facility will include offices, training and service facilities, and a large workshop for mounting new pumps onto locally sourced trucks. Putzmeister Australia will have the complete responsibility for the sales, service, spare parts support and training of all Putzmeister equipment in the country.
“CPE has brought Putzmeister equipment and services to Australia for more than 30 years and we’re pleased to now officially have a Putzmeister presence here,” says David Bond, managing director of CPE and Putzmeister Australia. “Melbourne is the perfect location; its proximity to sea and air ports allows for reduced freight costs and delivery times for our customers.”
With extensive experience in the concrete pumping industry, Bond will lead Putzmeister Australia. After an early career in the pre-mix concrete industry, he became the exclusive distributor for Putzmeister in Australia in 1978, and has shown his long-term commitment to the Australian Concrete Pumping industry by continuing to supply top-quality products and superior customer service.
Putzmeister Australia will be supported by the proven management team of Putzmeister America.
