New Russian dealer for Rammer brand

By Lindsay Gale30 January 2014

Sandvik has appointed Komek Machinery as official dealer for its Rammer brand hydraulic breakers. The move is intended to strengthen the brand's position in the Urals and western Siberia and at the same time provide better access to the range for customers throughout the country, supported by a high level of aftermarket support.

Komek, established in 2001, supplies a wide range of specialised equipment and attachments for the mining, oil, gas and construction industries and is now one of the largest construction equipment suppliers in the country.

According to Martin Friedl, Sandvik Construction’s vice president sales area Russia: “One of our key strategic aims in Russia is to provide extensive service coverage, especially in emerging regions with high rates of industrial growth. Now we see a great need for expansion in the Urals and Western Siberia.”

He went on: “Rammer hydraulic breakers are some of the most demanded items in Sandvik Construction’s product line, and extensive market research has shown that we needed to expand our [breaker products] dealership in these regions to satisfy the growing customer need for high-quality products and services. Hence it was decided to establish a partnership with a company [Komek] which has vast experience in the construction field, established customer support facilities, and knows the specifics of regional enterprises from the inside.”
