THE relationship of Wenco International Mining Systems with its parent company Hitachi Construction Machinery has grown stronger with a new exclusive distribution agreement in the Asia-Pacific region. All Wenco products and frontline technical support services throughout Australia, New Zealand, New Caledonia, and Papua New Guinea are now handled directly by Hitachi Construction Machinery Australia.
Since 2009, Wenco has operated as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hitachi Construction Machinery. Through this arrangement and Wenco’s acquisition of Automated Positioning Systems last year, the company has gained significant ground in Australia. This is thanks to major projects such as Roy Hill, Maules Creek, and Stanwell. With exclusive sales distribution and technical support through Hitachi Construction Machinery Australia, Wenco expects to further increase its foothold in this region.
All sales, operations, parts and support will now occur through Hitachi Construction Machinery Australia’s numerous branch offices across the Asia-Pacific region. The Wenco Brisbane facility will continue in operation with a stronger focus on system development, quality assurance and certified hardware repairs.
With more than 25 years in the industry and offices on six continents, Wenco provides a comprehensive fleet management system for surface mining operations of all sizes worldwide.
Wenco delivers world-class software and hardware to accurately record equipment activity, location, time, production, and maintenance information. Wenco products are supported by an in-house staff of engineers, mining industry experts, software developers, and training specialists. Wenco is dedicated to ensuring each mine is as safe, efficient and profitable as possible.
Wenco’s international headquarters is in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada and regional staff are located in the United States, Chile, South Africa, Guinea, Burkina Faso, Ireland, Russia, India, and Australia. This extensive global presence gives Wenco the ability to build strong client relationships and provide the highest levels of customer service.
