Italian firm MB Crushers is now offering its products in Thailand following the unveiling of the line-up at the Intermat Asean 2017 construction equipment event. The show was run in Bangkok, Thailand, from 8th to 10th June 2017. According to MB Crusher, its attachments can be used with excavators, skid steer loaders, backhoe loaders, wheeled loaders and compact track loaders from a vast array of manufacturers. The firm offers a 12 model line-up and exhibited the BF70.2 crusher bucket, which is designed for use with excavators weighing 14tonnes and up. The company also showed its MB-S14 screening model, which is designed for use with excavators weighing from 20-35tonnes. Like other units in the range, the MB-S14 features modular panels with holes of different sizes and spacing for the production of different product sizes.
MB Crushers is keen to capitalise on the growing demand for equipment in South East Asia. Between now and 2022, the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) would need some US$60 billion to fulfil its infrastructure needs. An ASEAN Infrastructure Fund (AIF) was launched in April 2012 with an estimated total lending commitment of up to US$300 million/year. AIF is expected to fund about six key infrastructure projects/year.
