In 2018, KOR decided to formally establish itself with a Queensland branch located strategically in Yatala.
With southeast Queensland (SEQ) becoming a major growth hub for Australia, supporting new and existing clients in the region is of upmost importance to KOR, as demonstrated through the investment in the company’s facilities.
Branching across the country
KOR National Sales Manager Chris Masterson says with most of the KOR team being from a contracting background, they understand the importance of quick original equipment manufacturer service support and spare parts, as well as up-to-date equipment.
“Having the Yatala facility as a part of the KOR branch network, along with our Perth facility and headquarters in Mulgrave, Victoria, gives our customers the flexibility to quickly access our unit range,” says Mr Masterson.
Mr Masterson adds KOR is quickly becoming the nation’s preferred supplier as a one-stop-shop for equipment sales, parts and accessories, technical and engineering support and equipment servicing with the “added benefit of unit availability accessible in every branch.”
KOR’s customer commitment is made clear through its investment in a branch network and particularly its new Queensland presence, with Mr Masterson saying it is promising to see businesses in the SEQ region investing in a range of high quality units designed for varying applications.
With a full range of KEG and Duebre nozzles available out of the branch and a variety of available units – including the drain and sewer cleaning combination and recycling units; hydro excavation units; liquid tankers; and industrial wet and dry vacuum units – KOR offers Queensland the products customers require to tackle almost any application.
Additional nozzle support
KOR’s partners in KEG and Duebre offer Australian drain cleaners a full range of nozzles, with KOR holding a complete inventory of nozzles available for demonstration onsite to show the success prior to any commitment.
KOR will also bench-test a customer’s current equipment and nozzles to see the efficiency of pressure at the nozzle with mobile testing equipment. Displaying the view of the nozzle in a clear tube allows customers to see why KEG nozzles will improve performance and lower costs.
KOR says using nozzles and specialist tools for work in pipes and culverts up to a 2 m diameter increases a user’s efficiency when combined with standard jetting equipment. The KEG range also includes high performance root cutting tools, large diameter profile cleaners, twin nozzle assemblies for wide culverts and a nozzle with an HD camera built in to a 95 per cent efficient cleaning nozzle.
This allows for cleaning verification in a single pass when cleaning the drain, with the video then sent wirelessly once the line is complete to any device through KEG’s mobile app. This eliminates the need for a camera truck to verify a clean, making the clean and verification significantly less costly.
KOR says it is open for unit demonstrations at any of its branches, including the use and testing of nozzles.
