Chris Hayton joins Mirage’s team in Australia as Technical Sales Manager

Mirage Machines, an Acteon company, are excited to announce the launch of a branch office in Australia.

Based in Perth, Western Australia, Mirage Machines are now supplying our full range of on-site machining technology, including industry leading flange facing machines, pipe cutting equipment and diamond wire cutting machines.

Mirage have invested a significant, six-figure sum to hold a wide range of equipment in Australia for both sale and rental. This will support the extensive requirements across the energy sector in Australia, including the construction, commissioning and maintenance of some of the biggest LNG production facilities in the world.

Richard Silk, Managing Director of Mirage Machines commented “The Australian market is a region where our machines are already widely used on a number of major projects. We felt it was important to support our customers with equipment, rental machines, accessories and technical support on hand, where they need it. We are excited about the potential in the region for the future, which is a huge opportunity for Mirage and our customers.”

Chris Hayton has joined Mirage’s team in Australia as Technical Sales Manager. Chris has an extensive background in on-site machining, with over thirty years’ experience in engineering. He has lived and worked in Australia for over a decade, with great industry expertise to help clients when they need it.

The opening of the new office in Australia follows the 2014 launch of the subsidiary company Mirage Subsea Inc. in Houston, Texas, which was established to better serve Mirage customers in North America, particularly those involved in subsea operations. In 2006 Mirage joined the Acteon Group, a global Oil & Gas conglomerate; providing strong foundations for international growth.
