Opening of the Newman office
We’re delighted to announce the opening of our Newman office. Having worked with so many enterprises in this region and having shipped numerous fleet equipment to projects in the Norwest, we’ve had our eye on opening a site in Newman, where we can have a permanent presence and most importantly house stock.
Our Rental Manager Dave Costa has recently relocated to Newman with his family, to oversee the development of the business and coordinate equipment logistics, storage and mobilisation to our clients in the region.
As a new member of the Newman Chamber of Commerce and Industry Dave looks forward to strengthening existing partnerships and forming new ties. This expansion is an important step in our focus to further grow Axis’ profile and standing and will enable us to provide a more structured and personalised approach to our clients in the Pilbara. Newman now gives Axis even greater flexibility and mobility in the Norwest and Dave looks forward to starting many new conversations with mining and civil businesses, with local operations.
Poole St site expansion in Welshpool
In late 2019 we acquired the adjacent block of land on the Eastern side of our Welshpool facility, which Axis Hire shares with our sister business Axle Hire. This extension will give us the ability to hold a range of heavier equipment including some of our civil and earthmoving and heavy truck equipment, in addition to the wide range of prime movers, rigid trucks and trailers housed by Axle Hire.
The site is about to undergo a signage upgrade, where we will segment the large and small equipment and utilise the Orrong Rd positioning for enhanced visibility.
Axis’ young equipment fleet
One of the hallmarks of Axis’ fleet is the very low average hour usage of our equipment fleet, comparative to most other providers. We have been fortunate enough to be able to build a diverse fleet, which we have been able to upgrade at regular intervals, ensuring that our stock is very modern and is maintained in top nick.
We have always been mindful of the significant costs incurred by companies when critical equipment is non-operational and fleet reliability has always been at the top of our priorities list.
