Tadano has reaffirmed its commitment to supporting customers across the Oceania region with the opening of a new, purpose-built head office in Brisbane, Australia.

Opened on June 1 in the north-eastern suburb of Lytton, the $10 million facility greatly enhances Tadano’s offering to customers within greater Brisbane as well as its operations across Oceania. The new facility also provides customers for the first time with a common location in the city to access both Tadano and Demag parts and service.

“This is an exciting time for the business and for the customers we serve,” says Tadano Oceania managing director, Anthony Grosser. “We were in the process of looking for a larger premises, and the acquisition of Demag in 2019 accelerated the process. Our new head office at Lytton is now the largest dedicated crane repair facility in the Southern Hemisphere.”

Grosser explains while Australia represents about 0.3 per cent of the world’s population, it is a very strong and developed market, making it an important market for Tadano.

The new 14,000-metres-square head office significantly improves Tadano Oceania’s offering to customers in several key ways.

“One major change is that the new location in north-east Brisbane is closer to port facilities and the industrial heart of Brisbane,” says Grosser. “It is located off the Port of Brisbane Motorway and so is extremely accessible to customers.”
