Viatec Expands to New Zealand Through Waimea Group
June 8, 2021

Viatec is pleased to announce its partnership with the Waimea Group for the sales and services of its flagship ePTO product SmartPTO in New Zealand’s utilities industry. The island nation has aggressive and focused initiatives around emissions reduction, including medium and heavy-duty applications – with increased interest and investments in this sector both by the public and private agencies. 

With 51 years in the trucking industry, Waimea Group is ideally positioned to distribute and service SmartPTO and continue to service infrastructure projects that are essential to New Zealand by providing specialized equipment to the utilities industry. We can now count SmartPTO among them.

Waimea Group expressed they are pleased to have secured the exclusive agency in New Zealand to distribute SmartPTO by Viatec.

“We had been making our own electric PTO, but when we found SmartPTO from Viatec, we knew this was so much more innovative and superior to anything else we had seen. We just wanted to be part of this journey,” said product specialist Gareth Deck.

“We are delighted to add Waimea group to our global family of partnerships,” said Anjali Deodhar, VP-Sales of Viatec, Inc. “They are focused on the right markets at the right time and bring years of experience and expertise in this field.”

Waimea is the largest manufacturer and distributer of insulated bucket trucks in New Zealand’s utilities industry and has already built a fully electric EWP with a Versalift boom, so the partnership with Viatec was a natural progression. With orders for SmartPTO’s already coming in and plans to retrofit them on their own hire fleet, this partnership with Viatec enables Waimea to lead the way in providing environmentally sustainable solutions which are also commercially viable for the utilities industry.
