Brokk Add New Service and Training Center and Fleet Managers
Published: 17/6, 2019
Brokk has opened the doors to its new Demonstration and Service Center in St. Joseph, Mo., expanding its North American coverage and bringing the number of Brokk locations to three. Randy Glidewell and Mike Brott join the Brokk team at the new facility as fleet service manager and service technician, respectively. With the acquisition of Aquajet Systems AB in 2016, Brokk realized there was a need for a centralized location in the Midwest to demonstrate machines from both companies. The 10,000 ft2 (929 m2) facility incorporates an outdoor proving ground with various concrete structures to prove out the power and precision of Brokk and Aquajet products, including simulated U.S. Department of Transportation materials and steel reinforcement configurations. The building houses an extensive inventory for both companies, including a Brokk service fleet of more than 20 machines, for demonstrations, purchase, or lease, giving customers the opportunity of a hands-on experience to help them choose the Brokk and Aquajet models and attachments best suited to their needs. The facility also offers a complete service complex with a wash bay, workshop. and welding station, allowing for more convenient access and quicker turnaround on service. Brokk reports that several customers have already sent in their older machines for refurbishing. The new facility will also offer exclusive training opportunities.
