By Euan Youdale31 March 2011
Zoomlion has appointed Global Crane Sales as its exclusive distributor for crawler cranes in the USA and Canada.
The agreement was signed at the ConExpo exhibition in Las Vegas last week. Global has been worldwide representative of Zoomlion rough terrain cranes for a year and is exclusive dealer for tower cranes in the USA.
The company will be promoting four ANSI-certified crawler crane models: the 80 tonne capacity QUY 80, 160 tonne QUY 160, 260 tonne QUY 260 and 350 tonne QUY 350.
Uri Toudjarov, Global Crane vice president, said: "We've had a great first year with the Zoomlion rough terrains, with significant deliveries worldwide and a full order book. Zoomlion has recognised what we have achieved in partnership with them, and we are really excited that our relationship is being further developed with this additional distributor agreement."
Speaking to IC at ConExpo, Toudjarov said Global had an eight acre facility with spare parts worth US$1 million. There is capacity for up to $5 million in spare parts once distribution increases.
Talking about rough terrains, Toudjarov added that the company had sold 45 machines to Brazil, Chile, Africa, Russia and USA over the last year.
