Coleman’s Equipment was officially established in August 2008, by Managing Director Mark Coleman, however the business had been a dream of Mark’s since growing up around the family earthmoving business.
The idea grew when Mark entered the work force, initially as a Trainee Parts Interpreter for an Ag Machinery business in Central West NSW.
Skills, Knowledge, Relationships and Experience was gained over the first 10 – 15 years working for a number of small, medium and large enterprises, all centred around heavy Civil and Mining Equipment, in sales, procurement and asset management.
Prior to formerly commencing the business, Mark assisted both his employers and some close family with the procurement and sale of equipment until the business was established.
Initially starting from a home office with 1 employee, the business quickly grew within its first year, firstly into a rented office, the addition of administration support, logistics and operational staff, deep and ongoing relationships with mechanical, transport, freight and import companies (all still remain with the business). In 2012, Mark decided to purchase a block of land in a new Industrial Estate in his hometown Orange with plans to build a small facility with growth potential.
In 2014, Coleman’s Equipment moved into a modern purpose built head office and workshop facility, featuring large office, workshop and wash bay and large hard stand display yard.
In 2017, the business outgrew the existing display yard and secured the adjoining block which is utilised for additional storage and display area. In 2018, development has continued with an additional bay built onto the shed to house a paint booth, along with additional concrete area for external machine preparation.
Further expansion is planned for the business, recently securing a 3rd adjoining block which will enable Coleman’s Equipment to continue to provide customers with Quality Used Equipment for Sale and Rent, Water Carts and Attachments, along with other complementary services such as full maintenance, refurbishment and rebuild services in the future.
