Distribution Changes in Australia

Tigercat is pleased to announce that Onetrak Pty Ltd has been appointed as Tigercat distributor in the Australian states of Tasmania, South Australia and Victoria effective March 1, 2012.

BRANTFORD ON, FEBRUARY 10, 2012 – Forest Centre Pty Ltd has been the Tigercat dealer in Australia for the past twelve years and will continue to operate in Western Australia, New South Wales and Queensland.

Onetrak is a dynamic heavy equipment retailer servicing clients within the forestry, civil construction and extractive industries. Full sales, parts and service coverage is currently available for the Hyundai, Furukawa, Ammann product lines.

Onetrak managing director, David Hazell, comments, “Onetrak is very pleased to announce the new relationship with Tigercat. To date Onetrak has had great success in the forestry sector with the Hyundai brand and expanding this market has been a core strategic ambition. Being able to do this with a product like Tigercat is a great opportunity and we are very proud to be representing a product of this pedigree. Their machines are second to none and their people are focused, down to earth professionals who specialize in the forestry industry and contractors’ requirements.”

“We believe the Tigercat product fits perfectly within our existing business structure and with Onetrak’s forestry related background. We have the infrastructure, knowledge and industry commitment that will benefit our customers and build upon the strength of the already established Tigercat brand here in southeastern Australia,” David asserts. “We look forward to meeting and reacquainting ourselves with the many Tigercat customers within our area of responsibility. The timing of this agreement is perfect, with AUSTimber scheduled in Mt Gambier, South Australia at the end of March. This premium forest industry event presents the ideal platform to launch our relationship with Tigercat and spend some quality time with new and established clients.”

Forest Centre will continue to represent the Tigercat product range with renewed focus in its newly defined territory, providing comprehensive sales, service and parts support to Tigercat customers. Customers in Onetrak’s territory can feel confident with the knowledge that the company will receive all necessary training and support from Tigercat. Furthermore, Tigercat, Onetrak and Forest Centre will work hard to ensure that the changeover of representation in the affected regions is a very smooth process with no interruption in services to Tigercat customers.
