Demolition robot manufacturer Brokk has opened its newly relocated distribution and service facility in New Jersey, United States of America.

The facility is 33% larger than the company’s original building and is located in the same industrial complex in Stanhope, New Jersey.

Its 900 sq m (9,600 sq ft) area houses 50% more stock, comprising nearly all the company’s models and attachments, including buckets, crushers, grapples, breakers and Brokk’s 110, 170 and 200 robot units. Brokk said the facility’s larger size would also enable it to offer onsite demonstrations for common applications such as concrete crushing, breaking and drilling.

Lars Lindgren, president of Brokk, said: “Part of the decision to move our Stanhope facility was the need to increase inventory to better meet our customers’ needs, but in addition, it gave us the opportunity to add an onsite demonstration area. The move allows us to better support our customers across the US and Canada and provides a perfect setting to experience the intelligent demolition power Brokk offers.”
