The new partnership between the two companies means that Engcon UK will supply their range of machine hitches, tiltrotators, control systems and other products to The Scot JCB Group.
The collaboration between Scot JCB and Engcon will enable The Scot JCB Group to install tiltrotators to its’ range of JCB excavators offering customers a full-service solution from order to delivery.
Engcon tiltrotators maximize the excavator’s capability by reducing fuel consumption, environmental costs and machine wear while allowing for quick and easy tool changes and allowing the end-user to perform different types of work in a shorter time.
Iain Bryant, Joint Managing Director of The Scot JCB Group commented, “This new partnership with Engcon is another key development in our strategy to be the industry-leading construction solutions provider in Scotland and the North of England. Our ranges of JCB excavators are class leaders however the addition of the Engcon tiltrotator makes the machines much more versatile to the end-user. We have over 100 factory-trained Engineers available across our territory who will ensure Engcon tiltrotators are supplied, fitted, and tested ensuring they are ready for use from delivery. The market for tiltrotors in the UK is growing and we are in a great position to help meet the demand thanks to this new partnership.”
Andre Nordström, MD of Engcon UK also commented, “Engcon UK Ltd is pleased to announce the agreement with The Scot JCB Group whereby we will both have the opportunity to increase the productivity and profitability for our mutual customers. This is another important step for Engcon and the tiltrotator concept in the UK where we will be able to access Scot JCB’s network for sales, service and support throughout Scotland and the North of England”.
