Kobelco strengthens French dealer network
Kobelco Construction Machinery Europe is continuing its European network expansion with the addition of two new French dealers.
Solomat and Agricane have been appointed as authorised Kobelco dealer partners, and help to improve the servicing of Kobelco customers on mainland France and Réunion Island in the Indian Ocean.
Established in 1960, Solomat is a family-run business specialising in construction machinery rental. It has 11 outlets covering central France and the Paris area, and Kobelco says its prime location will enable Kobelco to service customers within a wide geographical area more efficiently. Meanwhile Agricane has been appointed to service Kobelco customers on Réunion Island, a French colony off the east coast of Madagascar. The company has specialised in the distribution of agricultural equipment since 1964, but recently expanded its product offering to include small construction equipment.
“Both appointments are particularly important to KCME as they enable us to enhance our service offering geographically, and further develop important customer bases in these regions,” says Philippe Le Bourhis, general manager EU, Maghreb, Russia, CIS sales & field marketing department.
