It has been announced that Mitch Avins will head the new Hydraulink Bunbury franchise, which will serve the South West region’s major industries, including mining, logging, agriculture, construction, marine and manufacturing.

"Mitch Avins is already widely known and respected as a top operator in the district as the owner of Maddax Heavy Equipment Maintenance, established in 2008, which is a seamless fit with Hydraulink’s skill set," WA state manager of Hydraulink, Andrew Lever, says.

"Mitch’s philosophy of ‘build ethical, reliable and responsible business relationships’ is highly complementary to the Hydraulink tradition of building lasting relationships through hard work and a level of service second-to-none in the industry."

Hydraulink supplies hydraulic hose, fittings and services through over 400 Hydraulink service outlets throughout Australia, New Zealand and the Asia Pacific.

"Our experience with some of the most complex and vital machinery operating in WA – and our knowledge of the different operating protocols on different sites – means we can integrate Hydraulink seamlessly into partnerships with clients in diverse industries," says Avins, whose extensive practical experience is complemented by qualifications in heavy diesel mechanical skills and advanced mechanical engineering.

"It is a great advantage for clients to have a maintenance team that will save them time and money by being already familiar with world standards of quality and safety compliance. Rather than have to learn partnerships from the ground up, we arrive on-site ready to work, wherever the work is," he adds.

The Bunbury operations include a 2,400 square metre service facility, incorporating a 800 square metre workshop, four on-site service utes and a F550 service truck.

"Mitch is highly valued by his clients because he knows what is possible and sets realistic, optimum goals of what is really achievable. He is a good listener to what clients want and happy to advise, if required, about any alternatives to reduce costs and drive value for the customer," Lever explains.

"It is also very reassuring to customers that the Hydraulink people serving their needs are already familiar with the specialised requirements of their machinery and worksites. Mitch has worked extensively on some of the biggest dump trucks, excavators and materials handling machinery going around, developing experience that translates into high on-site efficiency and which is also a great asset to high and uniform safety and compliance practices over many sites."

Hydraulink is extending its operations in Western Australia, with franchises already established in Perth, Southern and Central WA, including major mining and agricultural centres.
