McLanahan – which has been offering the global quarrying industry solutions in crushing, screening, feeding, washing and classifying, dewatering, fines recovery and tailings management since 1835 – has been distributing and selling the Anaconda line of tracked equipment in Northern Ireland since 2017.
Founded in 2008, Anaconda Equipment has developed a range of mobile tracked equipment, which includes scalping, screening, recycling and conveying equipment. This range is sold through a global dealer network.
In the past 10 years, Anaconda Equipment has sold more than 1200 units into more than 50 countries across six continents. Anaconda has also expanded its operations to include a sales and distribution office in Massachusetts in the northeastern part of the United States.
In Australia, Anaconda Equipment is distributed through Tricon Mining Equipment, based in Somersby, New South Wales.
Anaconda conveyors will be a key part of McLanahan’s new line of modular wash systems. Anaconda will also be adding larger size equipment, including track-mounted crushers.
According to McLanahan, both companies share many of the same values and approach to doing business.
“We looked into growing our line of tracked equipment in several different ways,” said Sean McLanahan, CEO of McLanahan Corporation.
“When it came down to it, we saw in Anaconda a company that was well established, had great employees and dealers, and had many of the same values and business principles as we do. Adding them to our family of companies seemed like a clear fit.”
Anaconda will continue to operate in the marketplace as an independent brand and its dealer network will remain and continue to support Anaconda customers around the globe.
Anaconda Equipment’s co-founder Alistair Forsyth will also remain with the company as group president and managing director.
“We’ve had a lot of offers over the years,” said Forsyth. “What I saw in McLanahan wasn’t a company that wanted to take us over, but a company that could and will help us grow.
“Anaconda will continue on as the brand we have always been, but we now have the backing of a company that has been in business for 184 years. They share our values and our loyalty to dealers and customers. We couldn’t be more excited about this partnership.”
