Routleff Motor Bodies Pty Ltd (RMB Service Group) has been appointed as the new TIDD Crane dealer for South Australia, effective from early February.
RMB Service Group will stock and sell the TIDD PC28 Crane, manage service and stock and supply genuine parts to existing and new customers throughout SA.
“TRT are pleased to officially renew our long association with owners Cheryl and Myles Woodhart and the team at RMB, with their appointment as the newest TIDD Crane Dealer in Australia,” said Bruce Carden, TRT’s director of sales and innovation.
“Along with the recent appointment of Ronco in Western Australia and our long-standing TIDD and Kobelco dealer, Crane Connection, in NSW, this supports the continued growth of the TIDD Crane, especially with the high levels of product adoption in South Australia.”
Cheryl Woodhart, managing director of RMB Service Group added, “Since the conception of the TIDD PC25, RMB Service Group have always been committed to TRT and maintaining their products throughout the entire South Australian network.
“Today we embark on a new chapter in our long-standing relationship to reignite that partnership once again, as the TIDD Crane sales and service agents for the South Australian region. The new TIDD PC28 product is fast becoming the preferred pick and carry crane in the Australian market with its advanced safety technology and features, and we look forward to supplying and servicing a quality product to our clients.”
Based in Adelaide, RMB Service Group is also a sales and service agent for world renowned brands that include Bronto, Maeda, Shuttlelift and Tadano. It employs factory trained crane technicians, heavy vehicle mechanics, fabricators, spray painters and electricians. RMB Service Group has a growing sales and support team providing clients with 24/7 technical support.
“Aligning TIDD Cranes with another well-known industry provider that has extensive experience with pick and carry cranes, and even our own TIDD PC25, is important for TIDD owners and operators across the country. RMB Services Group has a strong reputation with other OEM suppliers and a proven standard of after sales support and service. We know this is the right decision for our customers and we are looking forward to working closely together,” said Carden.
TRT launched the first TIDD Crane prototype in 2012, the TIDD PC25. After extensive industry consultation, the TIDD PC28 was launched in May 2019. Featuring innovative safety features, the TIDD Crane aims to provide greater opportunities on sites that had previously restricted pick and carry crane activity due to safety risk. TRT is now one of the only crane manufacturers that remain in Australasia and is the only road vehicle manufacturer in New Zealand.
