Toyota Material Handling Australia (TMHA) has been appointed as the authorised distributor of all Taylor-Dunn products.
With the exception of Victoria– TMHA will become the exclusive national distributor for Taylor-Dunn transport and material handling equipment after recently entering an agreement with Taylor-Dunn’s US-based parent company, Polaris Industries.
Former Taylor-Dunn retailers will no longer have rights to sell its products locally. TMHA GM Corp Compliance and Project Development, Bob Walmsley, said the agreement will bring a great deal of confidence to existing and prospective Taylor-Dunn customers in Australia. “There is a large population of Taylor-Dunn products in-market here and we want to reassure all customers that their needs will be met,” said Mr Walmsley. “Over the last 12 months there has been some customer concern about a lack of commitment to Taylor-Dunn products, but Toyota Material Handling Australia’s agreement with Taylor-Dunn’s parent company to integrate it in our product portfolio and making it part of our network means we will now ensure all customer needs are supported to Toyota’s usual high standards.”
The entire range of Taylor-Dunn products will be available via TMHA’s national branch network, although Mr Walmsley expects the local market – given its comparative size to the US – might require only 30-40 per cent of available models. “Obviously we’ll need to focus on what works best here in Australia,” he said.
The addition of Taylor-Dunn’s equipment range to the TMHA stable further rounds out its already comprehensive product offering. “Taylor-Dunn are well-known and well-populated products in Australia and also within our own rental fleet. The products have unique features and benefits in terms of their concept and how they fit in our range of offerings. They are products that Toyota doesn’t make, so are highly complementary to our existing range of other material handling equipment,” said Mr Walmsley.
