Electric Tugs To Be Distributed By Biwa Across Hong Kong And China
MasterMover are pleased to announce the appointment of Biwa Development Ltd as a dealer. The Hong Kong importer and distributor was hand-picked to develop export business in Asia because of its expertise in providing customer support and after sales for materials handling equipment.
MasterMover machines can already be found in use across Asia but the appointment of Biwa Development Ltd gives the company a fixed presence in the region in order to service existing customers and open up new opportunities.
Biwa Development Ltd will look after MasterMover’s interests in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Macau and mainland China. The new agreement has been forged following a successful partnership over the past two years in which Biwa provided local support for MasterMover customers in the region.
MasterMover electric tug technology uses the principle of weight transfer to enable heavy loads to be towed by a single pedestrian operator.
Biwa Development Ltd believes that this versatility will make MasterMover tugs highly sought-after in a range of market sectors including aerospace, automotive, construction, logistics and mining equipment.
“We rely on customer-focused representatives around the world who have expert knowledge of their local markets but also know how to get the best out of MasterMover technology,” explains MasterMover MD Andy Owen.
“We have hand-picked Biwa Development Ltd because it is a highly regarded company which has the same commitment to excellence as we do,” he adds.
A close working relationship is central to the success of the venture, with Sales Director Hugh Freer making regular visits to Biwa Development Ltd in Hong Kong to learn more about the needs of the Asian market.
