Sandvik Construction says that Komek Machinery, the existing distributor for Rammer premium hydraulic breakers, has now also been appointed distributor for Sandvik’s Mobile Crushers and Screens in the Urals.
Through continued collaboration with Komek, Sandvik says it aims to provide customers throughout the region with better access to these product ranges, which will be supported by the highest levels of aftermarket care.
Since its foundation in 2001, Komek Machinery has swiftly developed a reputation for excellence, supplying a wide range of specialised equipment and attachments for the mining, oil, gas and construction industries. From its head office located in Yekaterinburg, the company has rapidly extended its market coverage through a support network of 16 branch offices and workshops located throughout the Urals and Western Siberia. In addition, the company is able to offer a range of finance packages, including leasing options, as well as first class advice on equipment selection.
As one of the largest construction equipment suppliers in Russia, Komek Machinery was appointed Sandvik Construction’s authorised distributor for the full range of Rammer premium breakers towards the end of 2013.
Due to the success of the partnership between the two companies, Komek has now been appointed distributor in the Urals for Sandvik’s Mobile Crushing and Screening products. The Urals was chosen due to the extensive quarrying industry in the region, and hence the opportunities for Sandvik products.
Martin Friedl, vice president sales Area Russia, Sandvik Construction, said: “One of our key strategic aims in Russia is to provide extensive service coverage, especially in emerging regions with high rates of industrial growth. Additionally Sandvik identified an opportunity to expand our coverage for mobile crushing and screening equipment throughout the Urals and Western Siberia. Komek Machinery, with its extensive network of branch offices and workshops, as well as being the existing distributor for Rammer hydraulic breakers, was considered the best way to achieve this.
“Extensive marketing research has shown that customers in the region have increasing requirements for high-quality construction-quarrying equipment and services. By building on the existing partnership with Komek, with its vast experience of the local industries, and extensive knowledge of the regional customer base, will allow Sandvik to service businesses in the region.”
