First publishedin Aggregates Business Europe
McCloskey International has officially named High Power Equipment (HPE) Africa as its sole Southern Africa distributor for its full line of crushing, screening, stacking and recycling equipment.
The company says that HPE Africa will stock and distribute the entire range of McCloskey International equipment, which is divided into four main product groups that include stock-piling conveyors, crushers, trommel screens, which are aimed at the organic and recycling markets, and vibratory screeners, which are aimed at the aggregates market.
For McCloskey International Africa is a key target market, notes vice president of sales John O’Neill.
“To date, McCloskey International has only had a small presence in Africa. Due to the comprehensive product range that the company boasts, the decision was made to have full dealer support through HPE Africa in order to ensure that local customers are being provided with full value added service,” he says.
“The McCloskey International range of equipment augments HPE Africa’s current offering to all of its existing markets,” says HPE Africa McCloskey sales manager Alan Straw.
“As the sole distributer of the McCloskey International brand in Southern Africa, HPE Africa has committed itself to being a full stocking dealer, and will be furnished to provide the support that is required to properly maintain the McCloskey International range of equipment and its customer relationships. HPE Africa will also be keeping a full backup of stock to service all of these machines, while McCloskey International has committed itself to providing in-depth and comprehensive training to all HPE Africa technicians in order to ensure that they are fully certified on the entire range.”
The McCloskey International range has only been available to the local market through HPE Africa for a matter of months and to date it has imported two direct feed screens for a customer in Durban in addition to two jaw crushers and three S-Type hopper fed screens for another customer in Johannesburg.
HPE Africa became the sole South African distributor of Hyundai earthmoving equipment under the leadership of Alan Grady, in 2000, and it also distributes Astra off-road, articulated and rigid dump trucks; Soosan hammers and drills and MB Crusher buckets.
