General Manager's Message Winter 2014

Monday 20 January 2014 @ 12:59

Brad LawrenceWelcome to another edition of the Blue News, the magazine for Genie customers throughout Australia and New Zealand.

The first six months of 2014 has seen a marked improvement on 2013 with liquid natural gas (LNG) construction activity growing and non-residential work improving as well.

The HRIA Convention and Exhibition was a great success and I would like to thank all customers who helped us celebrate the launch of our new Genie® SX-180 boom lift at Metricon Stadium. This new boom has set the benchmark for our industry and is now working hard in New Zealand on a port container crane assembly. We also used the Convention as an opportunity to recognize and thank our service technicians for the great job they do each and every day to support our customers across Australia and New Zealand.

I am also pleased to announce that we are expanding our service training options for customers with the launch of our new online service training. I have heard it many times before that our customers would like to send their service teams to our face-to-face training programs but due to workloads and remote locations this has not been possible. Our new online service training packages will allow our customers to train their teams from any location as long as it has a computer and internet connection. Obviously we will be continuing our face-to-face program, but we are excited to be expanding our training offering to customers in 2014.

In closing, I’d like to thank you for your business in 2013 and look forward to a prosperous and successful 2014.
Happy reading!

Brad Lawrence
General Manager Genie Australia
