Continuing the development of the Australasian market, Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology is proud to announce the extension of the agreement with Porter Group to cover Australia and New Zealand.

Sandvik has successfully been working with Porter Group for the sales and aftermarket support of its mobile crushing and screening range in New Zealand since 2009. As an established and reputable name throughout Australia for the supply of heavy equipment, we have now decided to appoint Porter Group as the Mobile distributor for the entire Australian territory. This includes Papua New Guinea and Neighbouring Islands. This move will benefit customers in Australia by offering more localized and customer focused support in their area.

On the appointment Joe McCormack, Area Sales Manager for Sandvik Mobile Crushers and Screens commented “We are pleased to appoint Porter Group as the Mobiles’ distributor for the Australian market. Our relationship with Porter Group has grown successfully over the years and we are delighted to extend their agreement to include the whole of the Australian territory.”

Darren Ralph, General Manager of Porter Equipment Australasia said “‘The latest extension of the Sandvik relationship is an important progression for the brand in the region. Sandvik Mobiles are global leaders in technology and productivity and this development will ensure that the product is brought to the customer base efficiently. We aim to provide Sandvik Mobiles with a platform to propel the brand to new heights in Australia.’
