When the new Gladstone facility opens next month, Custom Fluidpower will have four sales and service centres in Queensland to meet customers’ needs, located in Brisbane, Emerald, Mackay, and Gladstone.
These four hubs will enable customers to access service from a single provider who has the knowledge of the local applications, technology and environmental conditions.
Custom Fluidpower sales director Neil Martin said: “Due to services provided by our Brisbane branch, we have already developed many great relationships with customers based in Gladstone.
“The Gladstone branch completes our ability to effectively service the area between Gladstone, Mackay and Emerald in the Bowen Basin and Callide regions and provides for our future ability to service the Rockhampton coast area.”
Located at 116 B Hanson Rd, Gladstone, in an 1100 square metre facility, the branch is well placed to service local industry from port and coal projects through to local hydraulic service providers.
Custom Fluidpower is experienced in the provision of services relevant to the Gladstone market, from braking systems for ports and complete drill rig hydraulic packages, including design and fitting, through to smelters.
The Gladstone branch will offer a range of fluid power solutions from complete system design and product sales through to field service, workshop repairs, and installation and commissioning.
The facility will be managed by Stephen Hooper, who is currently branch manager of Custom Fluidpower’s Emerald branch.
Hooper will relocate to Gladstone and still maintain management responsibility for Emerald’s branch in conjunction with a strong local team based in Emerald.
