Indeco is widening its range of shears and pulverisers
Indeco is widening its range of hydraulic attachments for use on excavators, part of a major investment in its overall business operations. The company is also setting up a new manufacturing facility close to its HQ in Bari, Italy, which will be used to make the demolition shears and cutters.
Marketing manager Michele Vitulano said: “We are increasing the range and starting on the development of new products. We will come out next year with an even bigger hammer. We had a request for a higher level of productivity.”
The current top-of-the-range breaker weighs in at around 11 tonnes, but Vitulano said that the new unit will be 30% more powerful. This will suit use on carriers weighing from 100-150 tonnes, “but the best match will be for a 120-tonner”.
The unit will suit duties in extraction operations, as well as for breaking up slag in steel production facilities. Also under development are new demolition cutters and pulverisers, as the company is seeing growing demand for these units. And Indeco is developing hydraulic attachments for other market segments also, as well as buying a small business that makes attachments. Vitulano said: “This is the commitment from Indeco to change from a hammer manufacturer to a company with a tool for every job.”
Meanwhile the firm is expanding its presence worldwide, setting up new dealerships in additional territories around the globe.
This new plant and broader product range is coming at a time when Indeco is seeing healthy demand for new units. Vitulano concluded: “The market is going well for everybody.”
