Agder Gruppen will join Powerscreen’s strong global network of distributors to supply the full range of Powerscreen’s crushing, screening and conveying equipment, genuine spare parts, and machinery maintenance throughout the Nordic region.
Agder Gruppen is a total supplier to the construction industry in Norway with a head office based in Kristiansand, and service points in Bergen, Trondheim, Flekkefjord, Sandefjord and in the Oslo area. The company has around 100 employees and has a wealth of technical, electrical and mechanical engineering expertise.
Stephen McLarnon, Powerscreen territory manager for Norway, said: “Agder Gruppen is a welcome addition to the Powerscreen family. Their extensive industry experience and impressive network of service centres mean that we can count on them for reliable customer support. Powerscreen has an enviable range of reliable solutions for the crushing, screening and conveying industry—this, along with Agder Gruppen’s excellent reputation across Norway, will contribute towards a strong partnership in the future.”
Svein Arne Uppstad, CEO of Agder Gruppen, said: “We are enormously proud to have been selected as the agent for the well-known brand Powerscreen. Agder Group emerged as the first choice in competition with several established suppliers who wished to represent this strong brand. Powerscreen is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of mobile crushing and screening machinery, and Agder Group will now become the principal supplier of this brand in Norway.
"Agder Group will assume responsibility for sales, service and parts sales for the entire range of Powerscreen products. This is an extremely important initiative in Norway and will provide Agder Group with the opportunity to achieve our vision of becoming the preferred full-service supplier to contractors in the Nordic countries.”
