STG Global pledges to shake-up parts of the vocational truck market with a new range of garbage trucks and has revealed exclusive rights to bring Aebi Schmidt sweepers to Australia.
The Melbourne-headquartered specialised equipment manufacturer’s move marks the addition of the waste vehicle market to an offering that already counts water, vacuum, service and tilt tray trucks.
According to STG, The Bandit side loader, The Claw rear loader, and The Tusks front loader bodywork designs “bring added safety, automation and efficiency to waste collection”, and are already being trialled by one of Australia’s largest municipal waste collection services.
“Australia’s population continues to grow, bringing greater demand on collection services, and the market has been looking for someone new to modernise and streamline the industry processes,” STG Global MD Ross Yendle says.
“We’ve seen COVID-19 destroy many industries, but waste management is stable – no matter what, your bin gets picked up once a week.
“We’re happy to bring automation, reliability, and customer-first after-sales service and support that will benefit everyone in the industry, right down to the ratepayer putting their bins out on the curb.”
Corematic engineering director Scott Hansen led development of the new garbage truck range, and says early-stage feedback from operators has been “incredibly positive and encouraging”.
“Existing waste collection trucks do the job, but the technology is quite old, and we wanted to bring new life into the industry,” Corematic engineering director Scott Hansen says.
“Rubbish collection is a critical part of our daily lives, and things haven’t changed a lot over the last ten or so years, so we wanted to be able to act on feedback from within the industry to build a better truck.
“Our focus is on the end-user, and because of that, STG Global’s new range of garbage trucks will set the standard of what people will be asking for in waste collection.
“They truly are trucks for the future.”
STG Global will also distribute the Aebi Schmidt Group’s latest airport equipment and street-sweeping vehicles, the Street King 660 and Airport Sweeper 990.
“Aebi Schmidt has a long history and experience in services for the treatment of mission-critical infrastructure, after first entering the sweeper market back in 1954,” Aebi Schmidt Group area sales manager Nehmetallah Abi Saber says.
“The Street King and Airport Sweeper are produced in Germany to the highest standard and feature a continuously-improved design.”
