Leading NZ heavy equipment hire company, Porter Hire is launching into the Australian market with a range of machines from Hyundai Construction Equipment .
 
Porter Hire is part of the Porter Group, which has been a distributor of Hyundai construction equipment through its Hyundai Construction Equipment Australia (HCEA) subsidiary for 10 years. HCEA has branches throughout Australia.
 
Porter Hire will cater to companies in the mining, liquid natural gas, and civil engineering sectors, giving them a range of options to hire or purchase high-quality equipment.
 
Backed by over 60 years of experience, Porter Hire is focused entirely on the earthmoving and heavy plant market with a fleet comprising of 3,000+ units operating in New Zealand, Southern California and now Australia. Porter Hire Australia General Manager Nathan Abbott says the company’s move into Australia this year has been a huge success. Nathan Abbott has considerable experience in the hire industry in both Australia and New Zealand.
 
Porter Hire’s fleet includes excavators from 1.6 tonnes to 120 tonnes, articulated dump trucks from 25 tonnes to 40 tonnes, 28,000- and 36,000-litre water carts, various sized graders, loaders from 1.5m³ to 5.0m³, and a wide range of dozers, skid steer loaders, compactors and compaction rollers. Porter Hire’s new hire fleet will primarily be made up of Hyundai equipment and the company will source machinery at short notice as per customer requirements.
 
Nathan believes that factors such as strong product reliability and back up support have helped build up the Hyundai brand in Australia.

Porter Hire can supply machinery for medium or long-term hire and will focus on meeting the specialised needs of large projects across Australia through packaged solutions. The company’s new fleet of equipment will be backed by significant technical support including field service and on-site maintenance support. Customers will be able to choose from a range of hire or purchase packages, including rent-to-buy.
