AB Equipment has a long-standing reputation for supplying high quality materials handling, construction and environmental products to the New Zealand market. Supported by some of the world’s leading brands the company is recognised for its ability to back its products with outstanding levels of customer support.

 

AB Equipment’s Wellington branch is one of the most experienced in the country with seven of its staff having over 137 years of expertise between them. The purpose built operation has an extensive parts business, mobile service utes for planned and unplanned maintenance and an operator training facility to suit off or on-site applications.

 

AB Equipment is the leading supplier of materials handling products as a result of its distribution of the Toyota forklift range. This arrangement has lead to the company also distributing two other major forklift brands, BT and Raymond. This enables the company to offer a wide range of hi-tech quality options to suit all warehousing requirements including ergonomically designed pallet trucks, stackers and high level reach trucks. Other areas of materials handling are also well catered for with Kalmar, the world’s leading supplier of cargo handling equipment to ports, terminals and intermodal facilities, Combilift multi-directional forklifts for narrow aisle requirements and Manitou forklifts for rough terrain applications.

 

AB Equipment’s construction equipment product range includes products suitable for the construction and forestry industries. Famous brands include Sumitomo excavators, Doosan excavator, loaders and dump trucks, Bobcat skid steer loaders and mini excavators, Tigercat log skidders and harvesters, Sakai compaction rollers and Manitou access platform and telescopic handling equipment. Its environmental offering includes Vermeer underground directional drills, stump grinders and brush chippers.
