Trelleborg to launch Interfit service brand in Australia, New Zealand
Trelleborg Wheel Systems is to rebrand Solid Service, its Australian industrial tyre service business as Interfit, bringing it in line with the Trelleborg’s other tyre service operations around the world.
Paul Hansen, Managing Director of Interfit Australia, says: “This is a really exciting development for our operations here in Australia and New Zealand, and great news for our customers. The Interfit brand is well known and respected as a key business partner for the global materials handling industry. Working under the Interfit umbrella means that we will continue to build on the reputation we have built over the past three decades for quality products, service excellence and dedication to customer satisfaction; with the added weight of a global brand behind us.”
Luca Giovannini, Interfit Global Development Manager, commented: “The launch of the Interfit brand in Australia and New Zealand is another key step for us. Interfit now operates across four continents, meaning that our global customers can expect the same level of service excellence wherever they are. We created Interfit to be the service partner for the materials handling industry and look forward to working with customers, existing and new across the region.”
Established in 1987, Solid Service employs 68 staff and has a national network throughout Australia with branches in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Townsville, Adelaide and Perth, as well as in Auckland, New Zealand. All branches are fully equipped with both mobile and workshop pressing services.
Following the launch of new operations in the U.S. in 2014 and in Indonesia in early 2015, Interfit offers replacement industrial tyre fitting services on four continents. Built on a foundation of “Service Excellence”, Interfit specializes in onsite service delivery using both mobile press trucks and exchange wheel programs.
