Mecalac Intensifies Its Business Development in the Americas
Export development is one of the priorities for the Mecalac Group, which has been designing, manufacturing and selling machines dedicated to urban construction sites for more than 40 years. On May 16-17, Mecalac welcomed its dealers from the US, Canada, Mexico, Colombia, and Chile to France for a close-up look at the product manufacturing process.
In 2016 Mecalac North America, a new commercial subsidiary of the Mecalac Group, was established. The company’s first dealer, LHE of Boston, launched the sale of Mecalac excavators from the MCR range of crawler skid excavators. From that time the distribution network has been extended with the aim of maximum coverage across both North and South America. Sales have since extended to the entire Mecalac Group product range, from wheeled excavators and loaders to backhoe loaders, dumpers, and compactors.
The meeting with the American dealers provided an opportunity for each of them to visit the French factories where the excavators are made. The tour included Mecalac’s Albens factory to view mechanical welding and hydraulics, and the Annecy-le-Vieux factory to see the machine assembly. There, the visitors also enjoyed face-to-face meetings with regular contacts within each of the departments.
For Mecalac, this meeting was a pledge for the solid collaboration in markets with a potential to bring increased globalization to the Group.
