The company offers a broad range of best-in-class earthmoving equipment. The addition of McCloskey crushers, screeners and stackers is a natural extension for the company as it continues to expand its products and services in the mining, aggregates, construction & demolition, recycling and infrastructure markets. In addition to the equipment itself, Kemach Equipment distributes a full range of genuine parts, while skilled field service technicians and expert product support engineers ensure that assistance is available at all times.

On announcing the new dealership for McCloskey equipment, Les Lothian, Chief Executive Officer, Kemach Equipment noted,

“Adding McCloskey to our range of leading brands enhances our ability to satisfy the growing needs of our customers, while also creating the opportunity to strengthen our position of being a total solutions provider to the markets we participate in.”

“Having Kemach Equipment on board further strengthens our distribution network globally. Southern Africa is a market with huge potential, particularly in infrastructure development which is a key part of South Africa’s economic response to the coronavirus pandemic. These unprecedented times present some unique situations that we anticipate will contribute to growth in the marketplace,” said Toni Laaksonen, Senior Vice President, McCloskey International.

“Kemach has excellent relationships in both the public and private sector and working together will benefit not only our companies but – more importantly – their customers.”

Kemach is in a strong position to support the sales of McCloskey equipment in the region. Lothian concluded that “with sustained and strong growth in the population and the required infrastructure, we anticipate equally strong growth in the aggregate sector. Bringing McCloskey products to the market at this key time benefits our companies, and our customers.”
