New spare parts warehouse boosts Konecranes service, safety and delivery times in New Zealand

 

Konecranes has established a new 300m2 spare parts warehouse in Auckland, to enhance its global status and leadership in New Zealand.

The new warehouse is the first Konecranes parts warehouse in New Zealand and incorporates new safety and testing facilities. It was built in response to strong and growing demand in the country for cranes and lifting technologies and their associated maintenance and service, across industries such as manufacturing, materials handling, infrastructure, primary production, resources, steel and civil engineering.

Konecranes is a world leader in crane service, with over 600,000 pieces of lifting equipment of all makes and models under service contract worldwide.

Konecranes Auckland Branch Manager, Mr Nico Silvast says that customers will see several immediate benefits from the new comprehensively stocked warehouse.

“Many companies in New Zealand source spare parts from Australia, or their global headquarters overseas, but it can’t compare to having stock locally available in New Zealand ready to ship to both islands,” said Mr Silvast.

“In most cases, we can now offer same-day delivery for spare parts, which is a huge boost to customers with production-critical cranes, where downtime is not an option,” he said.

Another major benefit of the new warehouse is improved repair facilities, including a testing bench where products and components can be tested to ensure Standards Compliance.

“Customers who need repairs on their cranes, hoists or components will now be able to send them to our new workshop, where the latest technologies will be tested to ensure compliance with the highest global and local Standards requirements,” said Mr Silvast.
