Ranger Lifting opens in Melbourne

3. January 2018 | Comments (0)

Australian lifting gear supplier Ranger Lifting is to open a new facility in Melbourne, Victoria this month.

The New South Wales based lifting and rigging equipment supplier will open the new location in Kensington, a few miles north west of the central business district. Industry veteran Ian Jongen has joined the company as state manager Victoria and will head the new operation.

The Kensington facility will carry a substantial inventory of the company’s range of slings, shackles, other below the hook equipment, and height safety solutions. Equipment will include a 350 tonne press, test bed and mobile test truck.

General manager Ashley Thacker said: “We have been steadily raising our profile in the Melbourne area for a period of time, but we could only place a footprint in the city once we had a figurehead of the right pedigree to execute our growth strategy. Ian is a lifting gear expert and brings to the position 30 years of relevant experience; we are keen to leverage that knowledge and contact base to become a go-to source for Melbourne’s existing and upcoming development projects.”

Jongen added: “I am excited by Ranger’s growth plans, particularly in Melbourne and the state of Victoria, and readily accept the challenge to expand a subsidiary that replicates what the company has achieved further up the east coast. There are remarkable synergies between Melbourne and Sydney, so we can approach the task with a tried and tested business plan, backed by an existing reputation for delivery of world-class product and expertise.”
