TRT and their Queensland-based subsidiary, TRT (Aust) Pty Ltd, will provide Kobelco crane customers in the Oceania region with technical information, parts supply, and sales of new Kobelco cranes. 

Kobelco said: “This new partnership reflects both organisations commitment to outstanding customer service and support throughout the region.  We are excited to combine TRT’s great customer support and expertise with Kobelco cranes, which are valued in the industry for their high performance, having earned a reputation as the most ‘reliable brand of crawler cranes on the market’.”

TRT, a New Zealand based company operating across Oceania and established in 1967, have built up many decades of expertise in the crane industry.  TRT is highly respected and well experienced with crawler cranes, including Kobelco, the Japanese manufacturer says.  This new partnership will reshape the way customers are supported moving forward.

In a December 2019 email announcing the end of ACM’s deal, MD Ben Potter said the company would be continuing to supply the local crane industry, through a new partnership with Zoomlion.
