31 July 2013

Turners Auctions signs three year deal with multi-national Transfield Services

Operations, maintenance and construction services company Transfield Services have signed a new multi-faceted deal with Turners Auctions. The three year contract will see Turners provide a wide range of disposal services for Transfield Services, both on and off site. The agreement is also the second commercial deal announced by Turners Auctions in July.

Turners will manage all disposals for Transfield Services including vehicles, machinery, mobile plant and general goods and will also facilitate all on-site and excess stock disposals in order to maximise the value of Transfield Services’ assets.

Michael Bourke, Group General Manager Assets at Transfield Services says strong and effective partnerships are essential to the success of his company.

“The complexity of Transfield Services’ operations requires a high level of competency from our partners. Turner’s ability to offer complete transparency and accuracy of reporting and direct and live communication was a major factor to this deal. We are delighted to have forged this new agreement as we strive to achieve maximum efficiencies for our operations.”

“We hope this is the first step to a long and productive relationship”, says Mr Bourke.

Turners' CEO, Todd Hunter, says the exclusive agreement was built on the ability of Turners to deliver a range of complementary services for Transfield Services.

"We are delighted to have signed this deal with such a well-respected company. Transfield Services offer a wide range of diverse services to their customers and it has been our ability to understand and deliver to their requirements that has been key to this new partnership. The agreement is a significant opportunity for Turners in a highly competitive market. We look forward to forging a strong and close relationship over the coming years.”

Transfield Services operate a global business in the resources, energy, industrial, infrastructure, property and defence sectors and employs more than 24,000 people across 20 industries and 11 countries. Turners Auctions will play a vital role in Transfield Services’ goal to deliver continuous improvements in asset performance and sustain long term relationships with Transfield Services’ clients and partners.

Turners kicked off the partnership with a Transfield Services Clearance Auction today at the Wellington Branch of Turners Auctions. On sale was a wide range of commercial vehicles and machinery. For more information, visit
