The EDI Team

Our team has over 100 years of combined service and experience in the earthmoving, mining and rental industries. This in turn means our clients receive an honest unbiased opinion along with good old fashioned service. Our aim is not to be the biggest, but just to have healthy relationships built through working hard to deliver value to our clients. EDI is about the people within the business and the common values we share – INTEGRITY, SERVICE, COMMITMENT & HARD WORK
