United Expands into Central Queensland

1 September 2021

As part of our commitment to be a national leader in the industry, we are pleased to announce our expansion into Central Queensland through the acquisition of two successful local businesses. From today, 1st September 2021, we will be opening these two regional United branches in Mackay and Rockhampton.

The first business acquired in Mackay was ABEC Forklift Industries. Located at 7 Ginger Street in Paget, ABEC is a well-established company with a strong reputation in the local forklift industry. The business has provided sales, hire, service and parts to Queensland’s Central Coast region since 2009.

The second business acquired in Rockhampton was CQ Automatics. CQ was a dedicated auto-repairs and material handling business servicing the local Rockhampton area. This new branch will be located at 44 Dunlop Street in Port Curtis.

These two new branches will enable us to offer a greater service to our existing customers. Furthermore, it will allow us to expand our customer base in this growing Queensland region through our extensive range of products, services, processes, and capabilities.

“As a business focused on quality and customer excellence, we look forward to welcoming our new customers in Central Queensland into the United family.” said David Maxwell, Managing Director of United.


The expansion into Central Queensland extends our national footprint to 11 branches and enable us to strengthen our market position in the industry. This greater national coverage will also ensure our customers receive the best possible experience, wherever they are throughout Australia.

Stay tuned for more updates as we transition and establish these United branches over the coming weeks.
