By opening the new office in Perth, we are expanding our partnerships in Australia and further strengthening our position in the market,” says Gerhard Sturm, Senior Vice President Global Sales & Service at Palfinger.

New site for premium service

Palfinger chose Perth as the location for the new office due to the presence of major companies in the offshore, oil & gas industry in the region. As the demand for an OEM of lifesaving appliances in the region was so high, Palfinger has specialized in this product group at the new office.

Thanks to the new office, Palfinger, will be able to satisfy the needs of the custumers faster and with more efficient responses. Furthermore, the new site is aligned with Palfinger’s future goals.
