Manufacturer and distributor of bulk handling and storage equipment, Liquip International has sold its NSW and Victorian service operations to to its Victorian distributor.
The distributor, operated by Tracey Hourd and Jeff Borg has established a new dedicated NSW distribution, workshop and service operation, Liquip NSW.
The facility, which opened in November, provides ‘solution focused, service driven’ offerings, said Hourd, Liquip NSW General Manager, Sales.
The move does not affect Liquip International’s manufacturing operations at Smithfield in Sydney where it produces a wide range of liquid handling and storage products for the petroleum, aviation and chemical markets.
John Hattingh, General Manager, Liquip International said: “Liquip is very excited about the opportunities that Jeff and Tracey’s experience in the fuel handling market will deliver to Liquip International.”
He said that as well as a wide range of distribution and service activities, Liquip NSW would also offer mini tanker new builds and reconstruction.
Liquip International was taken over by the global OPV group in 2014.
The Sydney operation is known for its innovative API bottom loading couplers, loading arms, tank truck valves and fittings, electronic measurement systems for tank trucks, fuel filtration systems and aviation fueling components.
Liquip emphasises product research and development according to the company website.
“Liquip is vigorously pursuing electromatics and telematics to meet industry and customer demands for quicker information response times, load security, legislative alignment, and reduced operating costs.”
