Companies sign strategic co-operation agreement for delivery of SQ fully automatic coupler systems
INMALO, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of hydraulic excavator attachments, have signed a co-operation agreement with Swedish tiltrotator and quick-coupler maunfacturers Steelwrist for the supply of fully automatic couplers and attachment interfaces.
With many years’ experience supplying hydraulic demolition equipment, INMALO will now be offering the range of quick-couplers and attachment adaptors from the Steelwrist SQ-system product line, which is suitable for all types of excavators.
‘We are very pleased to announce this agreement with Steelwrist to become a UK dealer for their SQ system,’ said INMALO director Charles Polak. ‘We are a leading supplier of demolition attachments and dust-suppression systems, so the synergy between our current equipment and the Steelwrist coupler is clear. We have chosen Steelwrist due to their leading product innovation, safety features and compatibility across the broadest range of attachments and carriers.’
Steelwrist quick-couplers are well known for safety features such as their Front Pin Lock and their robust cast steel design. The conpany’s SQ systems offer increased safety and the ability to change hydraulic-powered work tools in seconds without leaving the cab.
‘INMALO´s focus on high-quality demolition attachments, fast support and service to the customers is a good platform for success. We see rapid growth for our fully automatic coupler systems in all our markets and have for some time been working within ECY Haulmark,’ said Stefan Stockhaus, chief executive officer of Steelwrist.
‘With yet another strong player like INMALO now joining the SQ fully automatic coupler train, we can give the UK demolition sector increased access to efficient solutions and great support from a well-known and respected company in the market.’
The agreement allows INMALO to offer the SQ fully automatic interface for demolition tools and Steelwrist SQ quick-couplers for excavators. Steelwrist’s SQ system follows the global S-type industrial standard with the addition of fully automatic hydraulic couplers.
‘Following visits to the factory, we know we have both a premium product which ticks many boxes around safety, reliability and value for money, plus a reliable and proven supplier in Steelwrist,’ commented Charles Polak.
