Kennards Lift and Shift  will start the New Year off with a bang with a new branch opening in Perth, Western Australia. The new branch will be located alongside the Kennards Concrete Care branch in Belmont, with Felipe Bolivar taking on the Branch Manager’s position.

The materials handling specialist division has already had four other branches successfully introduced to the Sydney, Wollongong, Melbourne and Adelaide markets within the short space of 4 years.

When quizzed on the key to its ongoing success, Allen Besseling of Kennards Lift and Shift said, “where we really excel is our ability to offer our customers innovative, top quality product. Furthermore, our staff are all fully trained and are able to offer customised solutions for almost any job, from small to extreme degrees of difficulty.”

Now Perth will be able to benefit from Lift and Shift’s expertise in material handling, when the new branch opens in January.

“Many existing Kennards Hire branches in WA were getting calls for our kind of product, so we saw an opportunity to satisfy a market need that was currently not being served,” says Besseling on their decision to open a branch in WA.

Lift and Shift are known for providing equipment specifically designed for any lifting, moving and positioning applications such as winches and hoists, conveyors, cable pulling equipment, forklifts and much more.

Much of this equipment will be offered at the new Perth branch. “We’re constantly monitoring our customers’ needs and will introduce more product as the market demands,” says Besseling.
