TRT has announced the appointment of two new Hiab sales engineers, Andrew Farell in the North Island and Matthew Tabb in the South Island.

The appointments aim to strengthen TRT’s presence in the transport and truck loader crane sectors in New Zealand.

TRT is the nationwide dealer for the complete stable of Hiab products, including Hiab Truck Cranes and Marine Cranes, Zepro Truck Tail Lifts, Jonsered, Loglift Log Cranes and Recycling Cranes, Multilift Equipment, and Moffett Truck-Mounted Forklifts.

Andrew Farrell joined the TRT team this year and brings extensive experience to his new role, with 17 years of expertise in the New Zealand transport and heavy automotive sectors. He has held various positions in sales, after-sales, and management.

Matthew Tabb has been part of the TRT team for more than two years, starting in the warehouse before quickly advancing to a sales position.

TRT’s national service dealer network  provides  software, training, and diagnostic tools for addressing crane-related problems. TRT’s Hiab service agents install, service, and repair the range of Hiab lifting and transport solutions. TRT’s Hiab service agents are all factory-trained specialists. Parts and attachments are available from all TRT locations.

Glen Harnett, TRT’s general manager of Capital Whole Goods, said the restructuring of TRT’s Hiab division reflects a substantial commitment to the company’s mission of offering cutting-edge solutions within the heavy transport and lifting industry.

“This initiative enhances TRT’s ability to provide comprehensive, expert, end-to-end solutions to its valued customers,” he said.

“The Hiab brand has held a respected position in New Zealand for many years, and our commitment is to propel it even further. We have a remarkable team and an outstanding product. Our aspiration is for Hiab to be synonymous with excellence in cranes.”
