TRT Celebrates the 100th TIDD PC28 Milestone

The first and the 100th TIDD Cranes next to each other, being celebrated

TRT recently celebrated a milestone event at our head office and manufacturing facility in Hamilton, New Zealand, celebrating the completion of the 100th TIDD PC28 Crane. This particular crane is being delivered to Brolga Cranes based in Gladstone, Queensland, and will be their first TIDD Crane.

Brolga Cranes provides customised and effective crane solutions for projects of all sizes. With experience spanning across a range of industries and prioristing safety above all else, the TIDD Crane is the ideal choice, specifically engineered and designed to maximise operational safety.

The celebrations extended to our Brisbane branch, where we live-streamed the event to unite the TRT team in commemorating this significant milestone.

TRT’s Managing Director, Bruce Carden says, “From the start, the development of the TIDD Crane was intended to set new standards in articulated crane performance, and we continue to focus on how we can advance this to provide the best possible solution for our customers. From the first TIDD PC25 to the cleaner, stronger, and safer TIDD PC28-3G, the evolution of the TIDD Crane reflects our commitment to innovation and adapting to the changing landscape of the industry.”

“Reaching the 100th sale of the TIDD PC28 marks a fantastic milestone for TRT since its introduction in 2019. With more Australian operators choosing the TIDD Crane, it reflects the industry’s growing trust in our crane. We extend our gratitude to all our customers and look forward to many more years of providing their teams with the right solutions to make things possible.”

“Lastly a huge thank you to our team involved in the manufacturing process, it’s their hard work, dedication, and commitment to detail that has made the demand for our TIDD Crane product so strong. Not to mention all those who contributed along the journey, leading to this significant achievement. Without them none of this would be possible”

For more than two decades, Gary Webber, TRT’s Manufacturing Projects Manager, has been an integral part of the company. He surprised Managing Director Bruce Carden with a meticulously crafted 3D model of the TIDD Crane, a project he had dedicated himself to for a couple of months. This thoughtful gesture recognises the importance of this moment.
