Atlas Copco Construction Equipment Australia (ACCEA) and the distribution arm of CFC Group, CFC Distribution, have entered into an agreement that will expand Atlas Copco’s brand presence and product availability across Australia.
Under the agreement, CFC Distribution will distribute Atlas Copco’s Dynapac road construction equipment, asphalt range, portable compressors and generators, light compaction equipment and pump lines through its network of more than 60 distributors Australia-wide.
CFC Distribution incorporates Construction Equipment Australia (CEA) and Redstar Equipment. The Atlas Copco lines will be available through its CEA and Redstar Equipment dealerships.
Massimo Marchetti, Regional General Manager Australia and Oceania for Atlas Copco Construction Technique, says the distribution agreement will make it easier for customers to access quality Atlas Copco products and exceptional service and support.
“This agreement with CFC allows us to broaden our reach, and we’re excited to partner with a company that is dedicated to helping our customers grow, produce and succeed. For our employees, it opens doors for career development as CFC is a growing, forward-focused business,” he says.
Hylton Taylor, CEO of the CFC Distribution business, says the agreement is a strategic step that will help cement a national footprint that provides a strong support structure to customers as well as widens its product offering.
“The Atlas Copco range is renowned throughout the world for its quality products, so it’s a natural fit for the equipment we already distribute.
“CFC Distribution’s vision is about providing the growing Australian market with industry-leading, high quality products and excellent after sales support.”
Construction Equipment Australia will distribute ACCEA road construction equipment and light compaction equipment.
ACCEA portable compressors, portable generators, portable lighting towers and pump products will be available through the existing partnership with Redstar Equipment.
The distribution agreement came into effect on 1 January 2017.
