Machinery dealership’s big plans

Forbes will soon be home to the biggest machinery dealership in New South Wales, according to Case IH McClintock’s director Matt Goodwin.

Mr Goodwin said the company, which currently has a dealership in Junction Street, had submitted a Development Application to Forbes Shire Council to build much bigger premises on land near council’s Central West Livestock Exchange.

Case IH McClintock’s have purchased two adjoining blocks in stage one of the industrial subdivision at Daroobalgie and plan to build a structure with up to 3500 square metres under roof.

Mr Goodwin said the proposed new facility would be six times larger than the Junction Street premises and would feature an overhead gantry crane.

It would allow the company to expand by displaying a greater range of machinery, stock more spare parts and undertake maintenance and repairs more quickly, safely and efficiently.

Mr Goodwin said the dealership would also employ more staff.

He said the proximity to the Newell Highway, provision of an access road suitable for B-double trucks and within sight of the livestock exchange, made the subdivision ideal.

“This location is part of the attraction of this facility, which will service a far greater client base,” Mr Goodwin said last week, discussing plans with Forbes Shire Mayor, Cr Phyllis Miller and Acting General Manager, Alan McCormack.

Mr Goodwin said the purchase of two blocks on the estate would allow the dealership to reserve a portion of land for machinery demonstrations and the large structure would boast space for training and conferencing for Case-IH and its franchise companies.

“Our Forbes branch manager, Mark Ross, and staff are all looking forward to the new facilities,” Mr Goodwin said.

“Machinery is just getting bigger and at Junction Street we are restricted with our access and land, so this is going to be very productive for our business,” he said.

Mr Goodwin said the plans still had to be approved, but said Forbes Shire Council had been very cooperative in encouraging the move to the industrial estate.

“We are very happy with the support we’ve received from Forbes Shire Council on this development,” he said.

Acting General Manager Alan McCormack said blocks of land on the industrial subdivision had been selling well.

Mr McCormack said five blocks in stage one of the Daroobalgie development had been sold and two lots in stage two.

He said the original subdivision in 2009 allowed for 49 lots so adequate land is available for future use.

The proximity to the CWLE and to the Newell Highway were key features of the subdivision.
