As part of the strategy to strengthen presence in the Australian market, AlmaCrawler has launched Almac Pacific, and its first branch in the country.

At the same time, the Italian manufacturer of bi-levelling access equipment has signed an official agreement with leading Australian company United Forklift and Access Solutions to become its exclusive national distributor in Australia.

“The appreciation and reception of our products from day one, has made Australia our first market. The prospects for the future, brought us to the decision to establish a direct presence in the market and open Almac Pacific to support strategic and executive customers,” said Andrea Artoni, general manager at AlmaCrawler.

“Consequently, it was very important to identify a high-quality partner to service and support the retail market. United have always been very receptive to our products and produce the same level of quality work.

Artoni added, “It is a pleasure that one of the most important and well-respected players in the Australian market decided to add our unique range of products and the Athena brand in its portfolio.”

David Maxwell, managing director at United Forklift and Access Solutions said, “We are excited to be able to deal factory direct with AlmaCrawler as we do with our other world-renowned brands. This enables us to provide a high level of quality technical support and provide a quick response service at the most competitive price for the end user. The new partnership will build on our current relationship and only strengthen the brand and the product offerings in the Australian market.”
