Hitachi Construction Machinery Australia becomes exclusive distributor of Wenco International Mining Systems
Hitachi Construction Machinery Australia (HCA) announced it is the sole distributor of Wenco International Mining Systems throughout Australia, New Caledonia, Papua New Guinea and New Zealand through CablePrice (NZ) Ltd.
Wenco is one of the worlds’ oldest and largest Mining Fleet Management Systems and has been providing fleet management solutions to the open cut mining industry for over 25 years. Wenco has also recently acquired the Brisbane based Automated Positioning Systems (APS) due to its unique product range synergies, which include standalone high precision guidance systems and drilling integrated fleet solutions.
Specifically, the exclusive sales and distribution agreement inclusive of Operations, Parts and Support brings together the world class products and services of HCA with Wenco's established Fleet Management System and expertise in production optimization, asset health, safety and systems connectivity for mining operations. This combined product alignment delivers a genuinely scalable solution for any size or type of mine and quarry.
This is an important and strategic step in HCA’s market leadership by strengthening our total solution delivery and commitment to the Mining sector with sales and support functions being offered from HCA locations in both Brisbane and Perth.
Gilberto Pauleta, Sales Director said “this will underpin our future growth in the Mining technology sector throughout the Pacific region”
“We now have the product range, sales and support network to increase the HCA and Wenco market penetration significantly” says Gilberto.
Our development team is also working in integrating existing in field High Precision Guidance systems (standalone) into the FMS product suite, providing customers with a low cost option for future upgrade to a full fleet management system.
As a subsidiary company of Hitachi Construction Machinery (HCM), Wenco also capitalizes on HCM's capabilities and resources. HCM owns over 60 subsidiary companies and distributorships worldwide and has an ongoing autonomous mining truck project, a strong R&D program and global brand recognition for quality products and services.
