Long-serving and highly respected marine industry identity Chris Guppy has signed on with Power Equipment, the authorised Distributor of Yanmar and JCB diesel engines.  For Chris, this appointment represents a return to home, having worked for Power Equipment a decade ago.

While Chris has a wealth of experience in diesel and petrol engines, his talent at Power Equipment is to be channelled into the Power Products division.   Chris Guppy has been appointed to the role
of Power Products Area Manager for Queensland.

“I will be working with OEM, trade customers and end users to assist them with their needs with the Yanmar and JCB line of diesel engines,” Chris said on his appointment.

“As a small farmer, I can very much relate to the needs of people who work on the land.”

Returning to Power Equipment, Chris noted that the multi-faceted growth which has occurred in the company and their products over the past decade has been incredible.  “I’ve watched at arm’s length the changes at Power Equipment over the past decade and its nothing short of mind-numbing.  The expansion of the Yanmar range both in terms of engine models and the gen set range is staggering.“

“Another important factor that drew me back to Power Equipment is that the company is very soundly based and administered.  Management is very sincere in its focus on customers and dealers, delivering 100% support on a first-rate product.”

Commenting on his appointment to Power Equipment, Business Manager Noel Heritage can’t speak more highly of Chris Guppy.

“We were looking for a high calibre candidate to replace Geoff Tickle who has retired,” Noel Heritage said.

“Geoff has been with Power Equipment for a long period of time and was highly valued by both our customer base and everyone at Power Equipment.   Chris is the ideal person to move into the role vacated by Geoff.”

“Chris spent ten years in the role of National Service Manager for Suzuki.  He is well qualified with engines and a good fit for Power Equipment.”
