Coates creates power and HVAC business
By Lewis Tyler30 August 2023
Equipment hire company Coates is launching a new specialist power and heating, ventilation and cooling (HVAC) services business in Australia.
Alongside existing offerings from the company, Coates Power & HVAC will offer end-to-end turnkey solutions across the country, where it will open its first hubs in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Brisbane.
Regional branches will then work with these hubs to offer customers a complete end-to-end solution.
These include logistics & installation, system design, commissioning, maintenance & monitoring, air compressors & quality air equipment, power generation equipment, power distribution equipment and demobilisation of equipment from site upon completion of the job.
The company says it is expecting “significant interest” in its regional branches, where its network and teams of plant maintenance people can “provide local support to Power & HVAC systems.”
Coates says the business will help keep an organisation’s operations running and is ideal for use in industrial, engineering, mining, oil & gas and manufacturing environments.
According to Coates CEO Murray Vitlich, the launch of the business comes off the back of demand from customers and will play a key part in the company becoming the “market leader in safe, smart and sustainable equipment solutions.”
Vitlich said, “The launch of Coates Power & HVAC is another key pillar in achieving that vision and ensures we can provide solutions to a broad brush of sectors and use cases across the country.”
Kurt Edwards, Coates Power & HVAC manager added that existing customers will be able to easily partner with Coates for additional project requirements; “We regularly work with building and civil engineering contractors to provide temporary power and ventilation solutions.
“We now offer a wide range of complementary hire solutions, such as hybrid power systems to support our portable building complexes, resulting in reduced greenhouse gas emissions and significant fuel savings for customers.”
Coates, which is part of Seven Group Holdings, has over 130 branches and 2000 employees in Australia.
