Arbon Equipment announces new showroom and training centre

Arbon Equipment is expanding its offerings in Australia with an all-new showroom and training centre at Laverton North in Melbourne’s west. As the Australian service and distribution arm of Rite-Hite, a global manufacturer of loading dock and industrial facility equipment, Arbon will broaden its capabilities in 2018.

The current 4500 square metre facility in Laverton North will be overhauled to include a 450 square metre showroom featuring a variety of industrial manufacturing equipment, including loading dock levellers and vehicle restraints. The full-size equipment displays will give customers a chance to view comprehensive product demonstrations onsite.

The adjacent training centre space will allow Arbon to continue its commitment to a highly skilled workforce. Technicians and customers will have access to ongoing education sessions that award credits from the Australian Institute of Architects. Course options will include one- or two-day intensive “fly-ins” and shorter “lunch and learn” sessions covering dock safety, preventative maintenance, or HVLS fans.

“We look forward to introducing these innovations and adding value for our customers in Australia,” says Lee Lorenc, Arbon Australia general manager. “The new, industry-leading facilities and roll-out of cutting-edge products will make 2018 an impactful year for Rite-Hite and Arbon.”

An open house for the showroom and training centre is scheduled for 11th May 2018.
