Keestrack has appointed Song Yik Chong as its new area sales manager for Southeast Asia

With over 29 years of experience within several multinational construction companies like Ammann, Caterpillar and Wirtgen, Song will bring 'extra knowledge and professionalism' to the Belgium-headquartered crushing and screening plant manufacturer's regional market offer. His main focus will be business management, development, and sales, including after-sales.

A Malaysian citizen with a permanent residence based in Singapore, Song is looking to establish an extensive dealer network to cover the complete product range of Keestrack in Southeast Asia.

Keestrack CEO Frederik Hoogendoorn says he is very excited Song is joining Keestrack. "Song brings a huge knowledge in road construction which benefits Keestrack to grow our markets in existing and new products."

"I believe I can build on my network and relations, my long work experience within the construction industry, and my drive to help Keestrack improve its position in the market", says Song.

As well as Southeast Asia, Song will cover the Papua New Guinea, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, and Mongolia markets.

"Keestrack will keep growing its product range in width and depth in the coming years, and I look forward to being part of this innovative company," continues Song. "In 2012, Keestrack introduced electrically-driven equipment with on-board diesel/gen-set in the mobile crushing and screening market, followed by a drop-off diesel/gen-set unit which could be placed on the frame of the chassis of the crusher or beside the machine on ground level. 

"At bauma 2022, Keestrack introduced the tracked engine/generator units. A tracked platform on which the drop-off unit can power connected Keestrack e-drive crushers, screeners and stackers directly with electricity in case there is no plug-in connection from the grid, resulting in huge economic savings of the complete production train as it is powered by only one engine.

"One step further is the ZERO range, Keestrack mobile crushers and screens sold without a combustion engine. They can be powered by mains or via any external generator, whether a tracked engine unit, a Keestrack e-driven crusher with an on-board gen set and plug-out connection, or any generator on site.

"Either way, Keestrack has a full package to convince all customers with the most economical equipment in its range. Whether customers are still depending on diesel-hydraulic, with load-sensing hydraulic technology or going fully electric, Keestrack can provide the best solutions."
