Focused Technology Solutions (FTS)—a Marmon/Berkshire Hathaway Company—has entered into another international market sector by partnering with Freightquip, a distributor located in Australia, FTS President Peter Bartek announced.
Freightquip will carry FTS’ flagship product, the SpikeEase. This comes on the heels of FTS partnering with LaTech Rail Technologies, a distributor with clients in Mexico. The company also has a partnership with Canadian reseller Davanac.
“Freightquip is a company that shares our desire to innovate while providing our customers with quality, cutting-edge technology,” Bartek said. “We’re excited to work with them and to bring the SpikeEase to Australia.”
“The SpikeEase offers rail maintenance workers a safer, lighter and easier alternative to traditional methods of pulling rail spikes,” Mario Susic, Parts Manager of Freightquip, said. “Once an operator tries it, they won’t want to use anything else.”
