Epiroc has appointed WAC McCandless (Engineers) Ltd as the authorised dealer for its hydraulic attachment tools across the island of Ireland.
Donal Cunningham, Epiroc’s Sales Manager for Ireland said “With a reputation for combining customer focus with product knowledge and expertise, WAC McCandless has successfully grown Epiroc’s share of the market for hydraulic breakers and other excavator attachments in Northern Ireland. We are confident that their continued investment in sales, service and local stockholding of attachments and parts will enable the McCandless team to offer the same level of customer support south of the border.”
Epiroc’s Hydraulic Attachment Tools (HAT) division has been a technology leader for more than 50 years. The hydraulic breaker was originally developed in 1963 by the German company Krupp Berco Bautechnik, which became part of Atlas Copco in 2002. The product range today includes 100 different hydraulic attachment tools, and is designed to ensure that customers can always find the right tool for their specific application and excavator.
The division manufactures excavator attachment tools such as hydraulic breakers, cutters, pulverisers, bucket crushers, shears, grapples, drum cutters and magnets. Among others, the division manufactures the HB 10000, the largest serial hydraulic breaker in the world – every punch equals the weight of 130 elephants.
Ciaran Carvill, Managing Director of WAC McCandless, said, “Epiroc’s comprehensive and robust product range, combined with our commitment to holding the full range of spare parts, supported by our fully trained workshop and field engineers makes this the perfect partnership. We are delighted to now be representing Epiroc’s market leading range across the island of Ireland, offering fast and reliable back-up service to new and existing customers.”.
Donal says, “We are looking forward to continuing to work in partnership with Ciaran and his team, to sell and support our wide range of hydraulic attachment tools throughout Ireland.”
