Rowena Cairns, Business Manager at Galesafe Weighing, reports on the company’s history, new direction, and new products aimed at complementing your business.
Galesafe Weighing has been servicing the quarrying, cement, and concrete industries since the 1980s when the business was first established as the distributor of LOADRITE™ products in Victoria. Galesafe Weighing has also long been the Victorian and Tasmanian distributor of Robway products, which are overload prevention and data logging systems for fixed and mobile cranes, and pedestal cranes on offshore oil and gas platforms.
For over 30 years, Galesafe technicians have fitted and serviced LOADRITE™ weighing systems in wheel loaders all over Victoria. The LOADRITE™ brand has long been known for its market-oriented range of weighing equipment and for its longevity, reliability and accuracy.
The first generation of LOADRITE systems fitted by Galesafe in the 1980s were known as the LOADRITE™ ‘710’, followed through the 1990s and 2000s by the ‘LR810’, the ‘LR910’, the ‘LR915’ and ‘LR912’, and then more recently the LOADRITE™ ‘Pro’. These models have all since been replaced by the current range of products for wheel loaders, now referred to as the L-Series, and comprising the LOADRITE ™ L-2180 (top-of-the-range model), Express Force, and Sprint. To prove the reliability of the product, Galesafe is currently offering a prize for the oldest LOADRITE weighing system that we can locate within Victoria. Details are below.
In more recent years, the LOADRITE™ brand has expanded beyond wheel loader scales, and now LOADRITE™ offers a superior excavator weighing system (X-Series), conveyor belt scales (C-Series), waste collection systems (E-Series), and state-of-the-art reporting tools (IM-Series), which complement the loader scales in the marketplace. For a given site, we are now able to offer a “one-stop shop” for all mobile plant weighing needs, and we can, therefore, assist our customers’ operations in maximising efficiencies when the weighing systems are complemented with data monitoring and reporting tools.
The Galesafe team comprises Manager Jim Cairns, who started with the company as a Technician in 1998. Jim oversees operations and is the primary sales contact. Jim’s wife and Business Manager, Rowena Cairns, is based in our office. Galesafe also has three Technicians - Chris Game, Luke Mckee, and Brad Kirwen. The team of technicians are fully trained in the installation, calibration, repair and servicing of all LOADRITE systems, and we run a fleet of service vehicles fully stocked with spare parts at all times.
Galesafe Weighing are available whenever we are required, and generally with a rapid response time, to attend to your LOADRITE™ system and make repairs or adjustments as required. We also offer a service program to regularly maintain and service your range of LOADRITE systems. A regular service and maintenance schedule (six monthly or annually) can be provided to suit your requirements, ensure your weighing systems are running at their peak, and, therefore, reduce downtime for your business.
