Eagle Farm, Queensland Australia – 15 July 2020 – ORIX Australia Corporation Limited (ORIX) has announced the launch of its new Emerald agency in Queensland to meet the growing demand of mine spec vehicles in the Bowen Basin and the surrounding region.
This ongoing network expansion is to support ORIX customers in the resource industry seeking flexible mobility solutions and to meet critical operational requirements with COVID-19 social distancing protocols. “This increased footprint not only represents an expansion of our rental capability, but it is providing Queensland regional businesses a flexible and cost-effective alternative to purchasing vehicles, particularly during times of economic uncertainty. We are still seeing companies moving from the once crowded modes of people movement to smaller less crowded modes including 4×4 dual cabs to socially distance and minimise employee exposure,” said ORIX Rental General Manager, Grant Harrison.
With ORIX already servicing North Queensland from their Townsville agency and the addition of the Moranbah agency in Central Queensland in 2018, this new agency will bring ORIX even closer to many key mining and energy projects in the region. “This greater expansion provides improved capability in the Bowen Basin area and now also the Galilee Basin. Our customers have wanted us to improve our geographic footprint so that they can continue to access high quality fit for purpose vehicles, economically. These are important hubs for not only regional Queensland, but also Australia,” said Harrison.
ORIX Rental is part of the world’s leading Fleet management, Leasing and Rental companies. With one of the broadest range of commercial vehicles, ORIX can support businesses with flexible short-term rental and leasing needs that keeping operations moving. ORIX continues to be a trusted supplier of mine spec vehicles for long-standing mining, infrastructure and energy companies and has built a specialist reputation over the last 34 years.
“Our continued investment in Queensland makes it clear that we are in this for the long-haul. We will continue to support our customers with the flexibility they need to meet their short and long-term requirements while keeping the most important asset safe – their people,” said Harrison.
