Conplant acquires Compaction Australia

  • Posted on Monday 5th, February 2018.

Compaction specialist, Conplant, has acquired Queensland-based business, Compaction Australia, expanding its fleet.

“Compaction Australia is a proven leader with a great reputation for excellent customer service and quality equipment,” said Conplant Managing Director, Ian Coleman.

“Their culture also perfectly matches our strong reputation for delivering reliable compaction products with no-nonsense, specialist advice.

“We've known the owners for almost 20 years, and we've always respected and admired the way they've operated and grown their business. Through this purchase, we’ve gained some very experienced and dedicated people and as we all know, even quality products struggle to deliver without good people supporting them.  The transaction was a very logical and natural fit for us,” he said.

Conplant has also acquired the company’s fleet including Ammann, Caterpillar and Hamm rollers, low loaders and field service vehicles.

“The increase in fleet size will provide a more diverse pool of products for major projects and contractor needsn as well as improve availability,” said Coleman.

“With the acquisition becoming official as of Thursday 1 February 2018, we have been busy merging the two operations aiming for minimal impact to customers. 

“We’re already operating with the combined support of the two teams at our largest Queensland plant located at Darlington Park Industrial Estate on Peachy Road, Yatala. All fleet and transport is being serviced and delivered from this well run and efficient Conplant facility,” he said.
