Montabert USA Opens Expanded Rebuild and Distribution Facility
Montabert USA has added remanufacturing and repair capabilities to its 50,000-ft2 (m2) distribution facility in Nashville, Ill., is pleased to announce the grand opening of its expanded Distribution and Rebuild Facility. Officially set to open in September, the expanded facility will allow in-house repair and other services for Montabert’s North American operations.
Prior to the Nashville facility expansion, rebuilds and repairs of Montabert breakers in the United States were handled in a partner facility in Tennessee. Relocating this work to the Montabert Distribution and Rebuild Facility provides several benefits that enhance the company’s factory-certified rebuild program. The expansion contains a 10-ton crane, service pit with lift table, and a hydraulic power unit for breaker testing prior to shipping.
“We now have the capability of lowering breakers up to 15,000 lbs [kg] into a pit for safe extraction of power cells and to perform inspections and maintenance,” says Amanda Carpenter, Sales Office, Warehouse and Distribution Manager for Montabert USA “We have also added a factory-trained breaker technician who is dedicated to working on Montabert equipment. The in-house rebuild center offers more visibility into scheduling, allowing accuracy of quoting and timely completion of customer rebuilds.”
Aaron Scarfia, General Manager for Montabert USA, adds that with the addition of a rebuild and repair center strategically located within the company’s existing US distribution facility, “we are now taking our already industry-leading product support capabilities to the next level. This expansion will enable us to more efficiently support our customers with preventative maintenance of their Montabert products, protecting their investments into the future.”
Scarfia explains that current capabilities for the facility include in-house rebuilds of Montabert’s complete line of hydraulic breakers. In the future, the company will also offer rebuilds for Montabert drifters and its Silent Demolition line of equipment.
Future plans for the facility include adding an industrial parts washer, paint booth, and a second lift table.
