The three distributors - Franco Clò and Centro Macchine Operatrici in Northern Italy, and CT Macchine in Sicily - will represent the complete range of EvoQuip crushing, screening, shredding, and conveying equipment and offer their industry expertise and local service and support for these products in their respective regions. 

Franco Clò was founded in 1963 as a workshop for agricultural and industrial machinery. It now occupies a headquarters located in Belluno on an area of over 30,00m2, where a wide range of machines and equipment are available for hire. Franco Clò is a renowned name in the machinery distribution business, known for its strong customer relationships and vast experience in the Italian construction and earthmoving industry. With their extensive knowledge of the Italian market, they are poised to provide expert guidance and support to EvoQuip customers in the region. Franco Clò will cover the Northern area of Italy.

Andrea Clò said of the partnership: “We are delighted to become an EvoQuip distributor for Northern Italy. EvoQuip design and manufacture innovative and superior equipment that will enable our new and existing customers enhance their operations. We look forward to building a strong working relationship with this premium brand.”

Centro Macchine Operatrici (CM)) was founded in 1990 to offer compact-line earth-moving machines. The company recognised there was room for growth in the diversification of products, including the sale and rental of operating machinery, and now offers its many customers an efficient and modern range and quality service. CMO’s dedication to customer success and EvoQuip's product line will undoubtedly be a winning combination for Italian customers seeking high-quality compact crushing and screening equipment. Centro Macchine Operatrici will also cover the Northern area of Italy.

CMO’s Paolo Entrade commented: “EvoQuip is a prestigious brand and one we are looking forward to getting out there to our market. We are confident this will be a fruitful collaboration and our customers will be keen to add EvoQuip to their operations.”

CTMACCHINE was founded in 2012 by the Pappalardo family with experience in the earthmoving sector and has grown to become the official distributor of many leading brands.  They have always worked with construction companies, farms and earthmoving companies, priding themselves in offering customers reliability, professionalism and assistance. Their motto is to ‘create a CT Machine Family’.  Their focus on delivering efficient and innovative solutions mirrors EvoQuip's commitment to excellence, making them a valuable addition to the EvoQuip family. CT Macchine will cover Sicily.

Giuseppe Pappalardo of CT Macchine said: “We are excited to become the EvoQuip distributor for Sicily. This is a growing market and one that EvoQuip equipment is the perfect fit for. Our ethos corresponds well with the EvoQuip family and I am certain this will be a long, successful relationship.”

Alex Young, sales Graduate from EvoQuip, commented: “The establishment of a presence in Italy is an exciting development for EvoQuip. This is the first time we have had representation in Italy, and we are thrilled to work with these esteemed distributors, who share our passion for quality and customer service. Together, we will serve the Italian market with world-class compact crushing and screening equipment."

EvoQuip has a growing, versatile equipment portfolio that is designed for a wide range of applications, including construction, demolition, recycling, and landscaping. The addition of these three new distributors will make EvoQuip products more accessible to customers throughout Italy, providing them with the high-performance and reliable solutions EvoQuip is known for.
