Order lights up growing business partnership

We recently revealed that more than 100 SMC portable lighting towers were shipped over to Australia to meet the first stage of a major order from Coates Hire.

We have been doing business in Australia for more than 15 years so were pleased to have secured a three-year contract with the firm.

We will be supplying SMC TL90 Ultimate Extra Low Voltage lighting towers with anti-glare HALO lamp heads and the compact and highly transportable SMC SL80 Pallet LED.

Phil Winnington, International Business Director, said: “The lighting towers start landing in August for use across all territories for night working and events.

“This latest deal with Coates Hire underlines the SMC approach to business worldwide. We listen to and work closely with customers to innovate and develop products that are built to perform in their markets. “We are working to build more partnerships in Australia where our SMC brand has proven it can deliver in demanding terrain and climates while meeting health and safety requirements and the need to be more sustainable and environmentally aware.”

For the past two years have worked directly alongside the team at Coates Hire, from the branch network to the boardroom.

SMC equipment, with QR codes to assist in safe set-up, lights up sites throughout Australia. The SMC TL90 Ultimate ELV, used on highways and rail projects for example, has a running time of 265 hours and a super silent operation at only 61.5dB(A) at seven metres. The SMC SL80 Pallet LED is a static eight-metre mast lighting tower with four 320W LEDs powered by a Kubota Z482 engine. It also has a run time of 265 hours and extended service times.

The latest additions to the SMC range, the SMC TL90 Evolve lighting tower and the SMC TL60 Solar Trolley light, received a positive reception when they made their Australian debut at HIRE19.
