TRT expands Kobelco distribution in Australia

7 September 2020


Tidd Ross Todd Limited (TRT) has expanded the Kobelco sales and customer service network in Australia with the appointment of Baden Davis Crane Connection (Crane Connection) as sub-distributor for New South Wales and Australian Capital Territory.

The Crane Connection will offer service, parts and the full range of Kobelco crawler cranes in these states. TRT will manage all imports and continue Kobelco distribution, parts and service across the rest of Australia.

“This appointment was a very natural development for TRT, especially for a product range that The Crane Connection are knowledgeable about. Our organisations work well together; we have a similar company ethos, outlook, and approach. Engineering and service is the backbone of both our businesses,” said Robert Carden, TRT’s technical director.

“The Crane Connection is already doing such a great job with distribution of our TIDD Pick and Carry Cranes, it was such a good fit for both companies. They have a sizeable service operation and facilities based in Sydney and we know they will provide excellent support for Kobelco customers.” Carden added.

“The Kobelco crawler range fits perfectly with our existing product lines. We have tele crawlers and rough terrains, truck cranes and all terrains with Link Belt. We also look after the TIDD range of articulated pick and carries manufactured by TRT,” said Anthony Davis from The Crane Connection.

TRT will provide ongoing support and training to The Crane Connection team in relation to the Kobelco range of products.

TRT were appointed Kobelco distributor for Australia, NZ and the Pacific region in February 2020.
