Allu has appointed a new dealer in southern Africa. Egelquip (Pty) Ltd will be supplying a comprehensive range of Allu Transformer and Processor attachments, and in conjunction with Allu, provide full aftermarket care, spare parts and dedicated customer service.
Egelquip is a South African company with a history stretching back to 1983. It now supplies construction equipment throughout southern Africa, and is seen as a premium service provider within the plant and machinery industry. The company offers a range of services ranging from machine sales to plant hire, all based on reliable, quality manufactured, heavy duty equipment. These must be able to operate across a broad field of application types including mining, construction, waste management and waste disposal.
Egelquip was established in 2013 by Kieron Geoghegan as a ‘new’ version of his original business, Conquip Plant Hire, which began trading in 1983. Once retired from his position as an international director of this highly successful firm, Geoghegan decided to start up a more modern interpretation of this highly successful business model. As a result of this, Egelquip was created with the intention of embracing the changed business environment with a fresh outlook in order to strike competitively within the industry and related markets. This approach has led directly to taking on Allu Transformers and Processors throughout southern Africa.
The appointment of such a professional and experienced industry distributor reinforces Allu’s commitment in providing even greater levels of customer focus. It also further enhances locally focused customer support, while at the same time enabling customers to benefit from dealing with a truly global company.
In practical terms, this means that as well as providing ‘point of contact’ customer support in southern Africa, when the situation requires it, Egelquip will be able to call on round the clock assistance from Allu’s Finland based technical support department. This will further enable customers to benefit from the specialised advice and assistance that has made Allu the world leading supplier of material processing attachments: namely the Transformer and Processor series.
“The opportunities in southern Africa are staggering, with Egelquip having the know-how, expertise and contacts to show how the Allu Transformers can help with surface mining and other material processing applications,” says Jeroen Hinnen, Allu’s vice president of sales.
“I would like to welcome Egelquip to the Allu family, and look forward to working with them over the coming years. I know they are keen to get started and help transform customers’ businesses.”
