‘McCloskey’s offer fits perfectly with our product portfolio and we’re confident it will help us to complete our offer for the quarry and recycling business,’ said Tomasz Jakubik, vice-president of sales and marketing at Tecnosumit North-East.
Toni Laaksonen (pictured), senior vice-president of McCloskey International, said: ‘Having AS Baltem on board further strengthens our distribution network globally. This market has huge potential, particularly in infrastructure development following the coronavirus pandemic.

According to Mr Jakubik, AS Baltem are in a strong position to support the sales of McCloskey equipment in the region. ‘With economic stimulus and recovery, we anticipate strong growth across sectors. Bringing McCloskey products to the market at this key time benefits our companies and our customers,’ he said.
