Tutt Bryant Equipment and 600 Cranes expanding in personnel

Tutt Bryant Equipment and 600 Cranes recently announced appointments of key crane experts to senior positions within the organisations. The appointments will assist with the expansion the product portfolio and the servicing requirements for the businesses.

With a portfolio spanning HSC, Kato and Sany cranes, across all forms of crawler and mobile cranes, Tutt Bryant Equipment (TBE) has welcomed key additions and expanded its capabilities in the crane sales and service segments. This is in conjunction with TBE’s associate business, 600 Cranes, which has also been bringing in new personnel as part of its growing business.

The appointment of Ben Marczak as TBE’s new National Technical Support Manager (Cranes) is an important one to enhance the after-sales support for HSC, Kato and Sany products nationally. Bringing with him 25 years of industry knowledge and experience, Ben has worked with a number of international crane brands in various areas of production and service. He is an endorsed crane and machinery inspector and is HRVAS accredited by Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads.

Ben’s appointment followed in quick succession of Phil Chadwick’s as Business Development Manager (Cranes), covering the southern states of Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania. Since joining TBE, Phil has wasted no time in re-engaging with customers, old and new, and securing a number of crane sales across the portfolio.

Together with Peter Lawgall, who is Business Development Manager (Cranes), covering Queensland, New South Wales, Western Australia, Northern Territory and the ACT, TBE now has a core nucleus of crane sales and service professionals based out of Brisbane, supporting all branches and customers nationally.

For 600 Cranes, a number of key appointments have been made in recent months to bolster its service and product support capabilities across Australia.

Based in Melbourne, Mark Pettit has been appointed as 600 Cranes’ National Product Support Manager. Having started in the business in 2010 as a storeman, Mark moved across to the workshop and was offered an adult apprenticeship which was completed in 2015. Mark then worked as a Crane Technician, specifically with troubleshooting and programming, subsequently promoted to a Product Support role and now has national responsibility in this area.

A couple of new faces have also been welcomed in the states of New South Wales and Western Australia with the appointments of Product Support Managers in those respective states. Stephen Poynter in New South Wales came with a wealth of experience in maintenance and servicing a wide range of lifting equipment both in Australia and overseas. In Western Australia, Simon Summerfield’s appointment brought in vast experience in mechanical and electrical maintenance, and filled a vacancy previously created when Robert Amy took on the WA Sales Manager role for 600 Cranes.
