TMHA TO DISTRIBUTE FIORENTINI SWEEPERS
Forklift market leader Toyota Material Handling Australia (TMHA) has secured the national distribution rights for the highly respected Fiorentini range of floor sweepers and scrubbers and dryers.
Fiorentini Sweeper Company manufactures a large range of easy to use and highly manoeuvrable battery electric and internal combustion floor sweepers - ideal for use in warehouses, logistics and distribution centres and most industrial applications where a dust-free environment is essential.
The new Australian distribution agreement, signed between TMHA and Fiorentini owner Alessandro Fiorentini in February 2018, gives the sweeper range the product-support back-up of TMHA's 17-branch national network and huge mobile service fleet.
The First of the units orderd from the Fiorentini factory by Toyota Material Handling arrived in Australia early August and are already bound for customer sites. The units include the heavy duty Ecosmile 85B ride-on scrubber dryer, larger application I42 scrubber dryer with battery electric or LPG power, and the S38 and S48 LPG industrial sweepers already in high demand.
TMHA business development and compliance sales manager Andrew Jones said the company had selected the best suited models in the Fiorentini product range for Australia, to suit local customer needs and match the products they currently use.
The Fiorentini product range is also complimentary to the current extensive Toyota range and adds additional credibility to our one stop shop mantra.
"The Fiorentini product is competitively priced, operator-friendly and performs well," he said.
"The majority will be rental units, opening up new rental opportunities and new customer opportunities.
"TMHA currently has some 200 sweepers and scrubbers on its rental fleet and will progressively move to an all-Fiorentini fleet.
"Our service technicians are being trained to maintain the new machines, meaning customers nation-wide will have the product support of our industry leading technical support team.
"We expect many of the Fiorentini units will to go to existing corporate and major customers and also opens up the market for our retail sales division so product support will be integrated with their existing forklift service arrangements."
