Bishops, the largest industrial
equipment provider in Papua New Guinea, has entered into a distribution
agreement with Enerpac to supply and support the bolting specialist’s extensive
range of tools and equipment.
The agreement will significantly
benefit existing and new users of Enerpac high-force 700-bar, 10,000 psi
hydraulic equipment among Bishops’ many customers involved in mining, petrochemicals,
manufacturing, forestry, primary industry and Government agencies. Papua New
Guinea has large resource industries, including an extensive mining industry
focusing predominantly on gold, silver, copper and nickel.

Mr Pat Molloy explains that several mine sites and industry worksites in PNG already
benefit extensively from the efficiency and reliability of Enerpac tools; the
new agreement will ensure customers have expanded access to these products as
well as technical support from a highly respected local supplier.
According to Mr Molloy, Enerpac’s
comprehensive range of tools will be available in PNG through Bishops, extending
from high-strength non-impact professional bolting technologies to
high-reliability, energy-saving pumps, cylinders and lifting cylinders.
Customers in PNG and Solomon Islands will get the double benefit of access to
one of the best ranges of hydraulic tools available globally from Enerpac,
combined with the local expertise and backup of Bishops with seven industrial
branches offering an inventory of more than 75 million kina worth of safety and
Enerpac precision bolting tools
include comprehensive families of hexagon and square drive all-steel hydraulic
torque wrenches, custom-engineered torque wrench pumps, tensioners, nut
splitters, flange spreaders and alignment tools constructed to complete the
most difficult bolting jobs with the high degree of safety and accuracy
demanded in today's work environment.
Mr Molloy adds that Enerpac’s complete range of
tools available through Bishops will be ideally complemented by Enerpac pumping
and lifting technologies that have been extensively proven in some of the most
difficult conditions in PNG over decades.
