Business developments in Narrabri are further consolidating the town and district as a major regional hub.

One of the most recent, Alfabs Hire, identified Narrabri as a strategic centre from which to service and support North West, West and Border region clients and established premises in Narrabri in March last year.

NSW and Queensland operations manager Nathan Adams has confirmed that the move has met the growing company’s expectations.

“Narrabri is a key centre. We are on a pleasing trajectory, even trading ahead of our business plan,” Mr Adams said.

“This is despite the wettest year in three decades and the covid pandemic,” he added.

“The support from the community has been fantastic.”

Alfabs operates across a wide area of the North West and West from its Cooma Road premises, investing last year in adjoining properties to house a growing inventory of equipment.

Alfabs is in the business of plant hire, large and small, for industry, mining, building, agriculture down to the home handyman and is an agency for market-leading Hyundai forklifts, TVH and Bepco parts and accessories for materials handling, industrial, construction and agricultural spare parts.

“Alfabs made the decision to establish in Narrabri as a central location, and from here we service centres like Inverell, Moree, out to Breeza, west to centres like Coonabarabran and north to the Queensland border,” said Mr Adams.

Alfabs has been in the right place at the right time as a provider to major developments like the Sydney University Wheat Research Institute, the Bunnings Narrabri store project, the CSIRO’s Australian Cotton Research Institute expansion and numerous commercial enterprises.

“We service clients’ needs from the backyard to big business and everything in between,” said Mr Adams.

“We are well supported by local tradies across the region.”

Now, Alfabs is building on its regional footprint with the acquisition of a Tamworth outlet which will open in the coming weeks.

“Alfabs has bought 11 assets from Monitor Lifts in Tamworth and will operate from that site,” said Mr Adams.

The acquisition of Monitor Lifts will add a significant new capability to Alfabs’ inventory with a range of lifting platforms from 12 metres to 43 metres.

Again, Alfabs Tamworth site will span equipment hire and be an agent for Hyundai forklifts and TVH and Bepco spare parts ranges.

“Narrabri and Tamworth will be the two hubs which will allow us to offer comprehensive hire service and support for clients across the wider region,” said Mr Adams.

“We will be appointing a North West regional manager to oversight the operations of both centres.”

Ongoing acquisition of new equipment underwrites Alfabs service, and the company has added a new 12-tonne truck to the fleet to further complement delivery performance.

“Alfabs is confident in the growth of Narrabri as an important regional hub and looks forward to being part of the community’s exciting future,” said Mr Adams.
