In 2017, Engcon formed its North American company with sales offices and warehouses in the US state of Connecticut.
Engcon says operations in Connecticut have focused on the nine easternmost US states, but orders have come in from all over North America.
The new office is being opened in response to the “geographical challenges” of handling all sales and large parts of the tiltrotator installations in Connecticut.
Morten Solgaard, managing director at Engcon North America, says: “The base for Engcon North America will remain in Connecticut. But with bilingual staff in place in Montreal, we are building closer relations with the Canadian market in several ways.”
Engcon Canada will initially be staffed by site manager Anthony Wolch and a salesperson to be recruited. A spare parts warehouse will also be built at the field office.
Wolch says: ”My role will first and foremost be to develop existing customer relationships and to create new ones, as well as expand the network of service partners. Right now, we have three service partners, and there will be more.”
He believes Engcon's automatic quick hitches and tiltrotators, combined with the company's smart tools, will provide contractors with new opportunities for more types of assignments.
"When the contractors discover the benefits of Engcon's tiltrotators and the automatic quick mounting system with EC-Oil, where the driver can connect hydraulic tools without stepping out of the cab, they will realize that our products will make their business even more profitable," Wolch adds.
