Sandvik Construction sales network to promote CDE washing equipment portfolio in Brazil
CDE have announced the establishment of an alliance with Sandvik Construction Brasil which will see the promotion of the CDE washing equipment portfolio through the existing Sandvik sales network in Brazil.
The announcement follows the formation of CDE do Brasil Ltda earlier this year as the Northern Ireland-based company seeks to expand operations in Brazil and the rest of Latin America.
Commenting on the agreement, Stefan Hunger of CDE do Brasil said: ‘This new alliance provides us with an opportunity to quickly identify opportunities that exist for the upgrading of the existing minerals washing equipment infrastructure. Our aim is to establish CDE as the premier choice for mineral washing plant in Brazil.’
A delegation from CDE do Brasil recently attended an open week in England to visit a construction and demolition waste recycling plant installed by CDE for the Sheehan Group.
The delegation included a number of representatives from Sandvik Construction Brasil as well as a group of potential end-users of CDE equipment identified by both parties over the last few months.
‘The visit to England allowed us to demonstrate to the visiting companies the quality of the CDE equipment and its ability to handle even the most difficult materials,’ said Tiago Carvalho of Sandvik Construction Brasil. ‘I am sure that over the coming months and years we will identify many opportunities in Brazil to introduce CDE equipment.’
According to Stefan Hunger, the alliance between the two companies is ideal for both parties as the equipment they offer is complementary.
‘Sandvik are recognized throughout the world as a brand associated with high-quality and performance in the crushing and screening arena,’ he said. ‘Adding our washing equipment to their portfolio completes the circle and allows us both the opportunity to further develop market share in Brazil.’
