Introducing Putzmeister Oceania
Monday, March 14th, 2022
We are excited to announce that Putzmeister has acquired CPE Machinery Pty Ltd. In Australia. CPE Machinery will transition to become the Putzmeister Subsidiary Oceania.
CPE Machinery was built with passion and a zest for knowledge of all things about concrete pumping. Its mission has always been to become the best company in this field within Australia and beyond. Managing Director, David Bond believes that this acquisition can take the company to greater heights; merging the global expertise of the Putzmeister brand and the local know-how of CPE’s talents into a stronger company that can serve the market better.
From the perspective of Putzmeister, Head of Asia Pacific, Michael Schmid-Lindenmayer explains “CPE Machinery has for a long time been one of our flagship dealers. For us, seeing the growth of CPE Machinery over the last few years, and the strength of the Australian market, it is a very natural progression to make this acquisition. It presents an opportunity for us to inject further investments into the future of concrete placing in Australia and surrounding countries. We will continue to strengthen the offering, grow the business and ultimately provide the best support possible to the Oceania region”.
What does this mean for our customers? You will now be dealing directly with Putzmeister. Putzmeister just got closer to your business. David will continue to be involved in an advisory role for some years. Over the next few months, you’ll see some new reinforcements added to the team too. Mostly, it will be the same people, same products and brands1. Business as usual!
There will be some changes to the way we look as we transition from CPE Machinery to Putzmeister Oceania, mostly just to reflect the change in the legal entity.
ff the blocks, we are going to offer a new line of concrete pumps! Putzmeister Oceania is now responsible for the distribution and support of SANY Concrete Machinery in Australia. SANY Concrete Machinery complements our existing portfolio by offering a quality alternative at a cost-effective price point, supported by the technology and experience of Putzmeister. We also intend to expand our product offering to the mining industry.
We’re proud of what we have achieved thus far and thrilled about the opportunities that lies ahead to serve you better as Putzmeister Oceania.
