New Zealand-based quarry engineering company Rocktec is the latest distributor to join Terex Minerals Processing Systems’ (Terex MPS) global dealer network, which already spans the Americas, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Australia.
Terex MPS global director Simon Croker said the company was delighted with the addition. “This is a great opportunity for us to work with this highly experienced business to expand and strengthen our foothold in New Zealand as a crushing and screening solutions provider,” he said. “We are sure that the excellent reputation that Rocktec have for service and support will also enhance the customer experience.”
New Zealand is not a new market for Terex MPS but John Flynn, the company’s market area director for Australia and New Zealand, explained that the supplier had identified value in renewing its focus in the region and increasing the level of support available to its New Zealand customer base.
He added that Rocktec was well positioned to help Terex MPS achieve these goals, stating, “Rocktec is a well-established supplier to the quarry industry with specialist knowledge of the New Zealand quarry market and a high degree of rock processing expertise.”
Working hand in hand
Rocktec sales and marketing manager Jason Tapper said Terex MPS was “an excellent fit” for the business, which engineers and manufactures its own original quarrying equipment for the New Zealand and Australian markets.
“Our decision to distribute for Terex allows us to provide products that supplement and complement our own product offering,” he said. “The two companies work hand in hand. We can now supply additional plant beyond the original equipment we manufacture to provide a complete package for our quarry customers.”
The distribution deal came into effect earlier this month, and Rocktec exhibited the new Terex Cedarapids LJ-TSV6203 vibrating screen at the recent QuarryNZ conference in Hamilton from 15 to 17 July.
Founded in 1991 by the developers of the Barmac vertical shaft impact crusher, Rocktec is now owned by the Southern Cross Engineering Group. In addition to its Matamata-based head office and manufacturing plant in New Zealand, the company has a Brisbane office and distributes its original quarrying equipment worldwide through an international dealer network.
Terex MPS is a supplier of crushing and screening plant – including modular and portable equipment – that encompasses the Cedarapids, Simplicity, Canica and Jaques brands. It is part of the Terex Corporation, a global lifting and materials handling solutions company that services various industries, including the quarrying, mining, construction and infrastructure sectors.
