Winching to a win for top supply services

Due to COVID-19, the Hire and Rental Industry Association Australia had to postpone its 2020 Company of the Year competition; however, Winch Hire Australia is set to return in 2021 as one of two finalists, nominated for its unmatched service offerings.

Winch Hire Australia offers a variety of specialised diesel and electric winches for the pulling of all different sized pipes and liners. Its hiring services are available across the country with rentals also available for projects in nearby countries such as Papua New Guinea and Fiji.

The right products for the job

Winch Hire Australia National Sales Manager Troy Moulder says the use of winches is mandatory for relining works as it would be impossible to complete projects safely and efficiently otherwise. Currently, the company’s most common winches used throughout the lining industry are the 3 t electric winches and the 4 t, 6 t and bigger 10 t diesel winches.

Mr Moulder says Winch Hire Australia is always looking at ways to improve methods of hauling, with more products expected to be supplied in the future as they are developed and manufactured.

“We have invested more than 24 years in the industry, continuously improving our equipment to the latest technology,” he says.

In addition to supply services, Winch Hire Australia also provides its customers with onsite assessment and evaluation through reliable, direct communication with its experienced staff.

Building ‘go-to’ relationships

Mr Moulder says over the past 13 years, Winch Hire Australia has worked closely with Interflow on a wide variety of projects, which has allowed a great relationship to develop between the two teams.

“One particular project comes to mind where we supplied our 4 t ZAD WINCH to assist Interflow with the relining of a series of pipes at Southport Spit, Queensland,” he says.

“You could say we are the ‘go-to’ company when they require hauling equipment. Matt Power, Branch Manager of Winch Hire Australia, has built a standing relationship with the team at Interflow over the years; understanding their projects and the types of equipment that they require to get the job done safely, efficiently and on time.”

Winch Hire Australia also supplies many other companies with lifting or hauling equipment, having been involved in many major projects including the Clem Jones Tunnel in its base city, Brisbane.

“There is no project too big or too small for Winch Hire Australia,” says Mr Moulder.
