Service Centre Now Open! - blog post image

After years of planning and months of construction we’re proud to announce our new service centre is officially open! And what better a way to celebrate than with a party?!

On the 25th August customers, suppliers and friends joined us to celebrate 60 years of Putzmeister with the grand opening of our purpose-built service centre, workshop and training facility. This was a milestone event for us that also marked the 50th anniversary of Putzmeister in Australia – a proud history which we are forever grateful to our loyal customers and suppliers for being a part of.

         

We were privileged to have Putzmeister Holding CEO Mr Martin Knötgen and Putzmeister South East Asia CEO Mr Michael Schmid-Lindenmayer in attendance to mark the occasion, and we are honoured that they consider us to set the benchmark for all Putzmeister dealers.

With beer flowing freely well into the night, live music and an aerial performance from the end of an MX35 boom, we’re pretty sure a great night was had by all!

         

We are especially grateful to those who travelled long distances to make the event; and for the support of local customers Next Generation Concrete Pumping, WestVic Concrete Pumping, Local Mix Concrete, Rapidcrete and V Constructions, who allowed us to display their machines.

    

Located in Altona (Melbourne, Victoria), the new facility is large enough to accommodate 16 concrete pumps at once and allows for a 36m tower boom to be set up free standing inside. For us at CPE Machinery, the addition of this building is part of our commitment to ensuring the highest level of customer support for Putzmeister in Australia. It allows for a dramatic increase in customer support for repairs, testing, mounting new machines on locally sourced chassis, training, as well as boom inspections, rebuilds and certification.

    

With the new facility now complete we look forward to delivering on our commitment to substantially increase the level of customer support for Putzmeister in Australia.
