Hitachi Opens the New Toowoomba Branch

Hitachi signs a new lease for the Toowoomba site to service the Western business region.

After 6 years operating out of the Dalby branch which primarily provided service and parts, Hitachi Construction Machinery Australia has relocated to a larger and more centralized location at Toowoomba after signing a long-term lease. Toowoomba serves as the geographical central hub for the region with many businesses of local smaller towns accustomed to doing business there in preference to Brisbane. HCA’s Brisbane and Toowoomba Branch Manager Chris Porter said:

“The new location is positioned in the heart of Toowoomba’s industrial area on Carrington Road, and the branch has been expanded to be providing new and used machine sales, as well as providing parts and service sales to their western region customers.”

The new Branch is positioned on a 6,400m2 block, with 50m2 frontage for the display of Hitachi machines and a combined workshop/warehouse size of 820m2 to accommodate for the servicing of machines and storage of machine parts.

The building is currently undergoing fascia remodeling to align with HCA’s corporate branding and reflect the national company branding identity.

The business has officially started at the Toowoomba premises with a view to growing the team within the next financial year to better support customers within the region.

The recent relocation and new site activation form part of the company’s growth strategy to consistently realign with the developing needs of customers. Chris Porter adds:

“HCA currently provides machine sales and support to Queensland customers out of the Brisbane, Emerald, Mackay and Townsville branches. The addition of the new site in Toowoomba will enable HCA to better support and further reach Queensland customers across the construction, mining, quarry, waste and recycling industries, through a wholly-owned branch network and a dedicated 24/7 national customer service center.”
