Mobicon reaches major milestone

  • Posted on Thursday 30th, November 2017.

Australian container handling equipment manufacturer, Mobicon Mini Straddle Carriers, has celebrated 20 years in business.

According to Managing Director and founder, Tom Schults, the first Mobicon Mini Straddle Carrier was designed and sold to PH Transport in 1997.

"Many of the challenges Mobicon faced back in the late 1990's are pretty typical of what most 'start-up' companies have to overcome," Shults said.

"However I believe the growth and success of Mobicon Mini Straddle Carriers can be attributed to one major factor: we have always stayed true to our product, and concentrated on making Mini Straddle Carriers only.

"Over the years I have seen other machinery brands expand into all sorts of markets. Where I have always believed in making only one type of machine - the Mini Straddle Carrier – and making the best one available on the market."

"Although 20 years seems like a long time to be running a business, I am still as excited today as I was back in the beginning. 2017 has been one of our busiest years so far, and with lots of exciting announcements set for 2018 I can't see myself retiring any time soon."
