Win-win for OTEL, NZH Wednesday, April 24, 2013


ONEHUNGA Transport Engineering Limited (OTEL) has a fine record of doing engineering work for the “high end of the market”.

Auckland-based OTEL, established in 1995, now specialises in building line and aerial device trucks servicing the power and line and tree trimming industries, as well as all types of crane trucks. It also builds other types of truck bodies and trailers and does associated transport work and repairs on trucks. In December 2006 OTEL acquired the sole New Zealand agency for American company ALTEC.  This resulted in the start-up of OTEL Utilities Ltd to deal with this segment of OTEL’s market.

The new company, as well as a growing mutually beneficial relationship with NZH, has been a starting point of steady organic growth within the company. Says OTEL owner Craig Pierce: “We’ve built around 40 to 50 bodies this year…a demanding workload. NZH provides us with a total package of hydraulic solutions, which in turn helps us provide our customers with a time and cost-effective total transport engineering solution. “They’re our preferred provider and easy to deal with – we use a range of NZH products, which is comprehensive, well thought out, and comes at good prices.” The two companies have a recent but successful history of working together on hydraulic issues.

“NZH also assists us with hydraulic schematics drawing if required…these synergies save the customer more time and money, with the added peace of mind that all responsibility and accountability are now under one roof,” Craig says.
