The Brandt Group of Companies has made a significant expansion to its underground offering with the recent addition of the American Augers line up of horizontal directional drills and auger boring machines and Trencor trenchers. These two complimentary product lines include the largest units in the industry and are a perfect complement to Brandt’s current Ditch Witch offering.
The deal ensures Canadian contractors have easier access to the largest equipment available, from auger boring machines with up to 1,200,000 lbs of maximum thrust, to industry-leading directional drills with up to 100,000 ft-lbs of maximum torque.
“The addition of these products is an important step for Brandt and the Canadian drilling industry,” says Brandt President and CEO, Shaun Semple. “It means that contractors can now get everything from entry-level units to the biggest, most powerful equipment for any job from one dealer.”
American Augers has been a fixture in the underground utilities and pipeline industry across North America for over 50 years. They design and manufacture the largest category of horizontal drills in the industry along with a full range of auger boring machines. Developed and hand-crafted in the United States, with the rugged user in mind, American Augers’ rigs are built to last and backed with 24-hour worldwide support.
Since 1945, American Augers’ Trencor line of large-scale trenchers has been a key player in the pipeline industry. Their rock-solid structure makes them the longest lasting underground equipment line in the world. Many active machines in the field today have logged more than 40,000 hours.
This announcement is especially significant in that the deal will deliver more than just unmatched access to premium drilling and trenching equipment; it guarantees the highest level of support across the entire range of products.
“Our focus is 100 percent on the customer and how we can help them succeed beyond the start-up of their equipment,” adds Joe Smith, American Augers’ Director of Sales and Marketing. “They require a proactive approach to product support and Brandt’s significant branch network and 24/7 commitment to customer care makes them a perfect match for American Augers.”
“Canadian contractors can expect better-than-ever uptime to keep them digging, even in the toughest conditions,” concludes Van Wall, Brandt Tractor’s Vice President of Sales. “Brandt’s reputation for a single-minded commitment to our customers’ success goes back decades and American Augers takes the same approach; everyone wins here, especially contractors.”
Brandt will begin taking delivery of American Augers and Trencor equipment in June.
