Hyster appoints Pacific Islands dealer
Forklift and materials handling specialist, Hyster, is expanding its service offering – including safety training and logistical support – to more locations, with the appointment of PortxGroup as a Hyster dealer servicing the Pacific region.
PortxGroup is a rapidly evolving industry provider of logistics solutions with a wealth of experience in port development projects and materials handling and will represent Hyster in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, the Marshall Islands, Nauru, Palau, Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, American Samoa, Niue, Tokelau, Tonga, Tuvalu and East Timor (Timor Leste).
Simon Munn, vice president of dealer development in JAPIC for the Hyster-Yale Group said, “Materials handling customers in these Pacific Islands have unique geographical and logistical challenges. Access to service capability and parts availability are key to success, and we believe that the nimble and flexible approach of PortxGroup will provide new solutions for these customers.
“Hyster backs its products globally, in locations ranging from the world’s most populous nations to the most widely dispersed, to ensure the same top standards whether in Singapore, Sydney, or remote Asia-Pacific islands,” he said.
