Hitachi appoints new dealer in Greece
Hitachi Construction Machinery (Europe)/(HCME) has appointed Ergotrak to be the exclusive distributor of its full range of construction equipment in Greece.
Having supplied Hitachi mining excavators and rigid dump trucks since 2004, Ergotrak has now expanded its range to include Zaxis excavators (mini, medium, large and wheeled), ZW wheeled loaders and Hitachi Sumitomo crawler cranes.
The company has 95 employees who are based at three locations in Athens and Thessaloniki. In 2014 it reported a turnover of €17.7 million.
Facilities at the largest site in the Athens suburb of Mandra include sales and administration offices, workshops, spare parts sales and distribution depot, and a training centre.
Ergotrak was founded in 1958 under the name of Gemsov and was initially active in the distribution of Soviet machine tools.
In 2008 it was acquired by the Sfakianakis Group. In addition to mining and construction equipment, the company is active in three other sectors: heavy commercial vehicles (trucks, tractors, buses and coaches); forklifts and industrial trucks for material handling; and diesel engines for land and marine use, and power generation.
“Ergotrak has 30 years of experience in the Greek earthmoving market and is strengthening its position in this sector,” says Spiros Andarakis, sales manager.
“We are delighted to build upon our already successful cooperation with HCME. Our customers will now benefit from the full range of Hitachi construction equipment, which is renowned for its reliability and durability, and is therefore ideal for the tough conditions in our territory.”
