Palfinger has opened a new site in Perth, Western Australia in a strategic move towards strengthening its local presence to consistently deliver on its promise of maximum customer focus and service quality in the marine segment. 

It is the first official Palfinger site in the Australian and New Zealand region in addition to two long-term business partners for marine solutions in Brisbane and Auckland. 

“As a provider of complete solutions, Palfinger is constantly driving forward its own market positioning. We want to be as close to the customer as possible. That is why we are increasing our presence in regions such as Australia to focus even better on the specific needs of our local customers and partners," says Gerhard Sturm, senior vice president global sales and service at Palfinger. 

The new operation was represented at last week’s  AOG Energy Exhibition in Perth.
