News - Skyreach - The New Way Up In Gladstone


Skyreach, the leading elevated working platform rental company on Australia's east coast, has expanded further with the opening of a dedicated branch in Gladstone.

Based in Brisbane and with Queensland branches already well established in Cairns, Townsville, Mackay and Yatala, Skyreach is a family owned and operated Queensland business. The expansion into Gladstone recognises the burgeoning demand for quality elevated work platforms in the region.

The Skyreach rental equipment is presented in the company's distinctive white and red corporate. The new Skyreach branch at Gladstone is fully committed to supporting the Gladstone market with modern equipment wholly backed with experienced sales and support people.

"We have the rental products and qualified people to service the Gladstone and regional market" said Rod Leech, Managing Director of Skyreach.

"I started my career in the hire and rental business in Gladstone over twenty years ago. So to return in 2011 and open a Skyreach branch on the very site where I was a manager all those years ago is quite remarkable."

The core Skyreach fleet based at Gladstone covers scissor lifts, boom lifts and telehandlers. All of the equipment in the fleet is either new or near new ensuring Skyreach customers have the best and most reliable equipment in the region.

The Skyreach benefits don't stop with the young fleet. Operating their own transport fleet, Skyreach is able to deliver access equipment where clients need it, when they need it.

And with their Australian head office and facilities yard based at Caboolture in Brisbane, the Gladstone branch is able to draw on equipment at short notice when required.

"We have the ability to rapidly respond to client needs," said Rod Leech.

"Already we have been able to freight up Skyreach access equipment overnight from our Brisbane yard. We can have it to a Gladstone client the next morning, ready for work."

In the unlikely event of a problem in the field, Skyreach operates dedicated field service vehicles, manned by qualified technicians. Help is just a phone call away.

Whether the need is modern access equipment or anything else related to the rental industry, Skyreach is on hand ready to assist.

The new Skyreach branch office is conveniently located at 56A Benaraby Road, Gladstone. Area Manager Bill Fleming can be contacted on (07) 4979 0066 or 0488 011 511. The Skyreach national toll free call centre number is 1800 457 145.
