Berco, a global producer and supplier of undercarriage components for many of the world’s main manufacturers of tracked earthmoving machinery, has launched Berco Aftermarket.
Berco says the new company exclusively serves the aftermarket requirements of construction machinery worldwide, except for North America. This region will be covered by Berco of America, a standalone company 100 per cent owned by Berco.
Piero Bruno, chief executive of Berco, says the quality and performance of the company’s many components found in original equipment machinery will now be available for the replacement parts industry.
At the same time, Berco Aftermarket plans a significant extension of its current product portfolio – far beyond the existing Service Line – to include additional many other undercarriage-related components.
As part of this strategy, the new company is running its recently opened own 12,000m² warehouse in the northern Italian city of Bologna. There, Berco Aftermarket will be partnering with Gruber Logistics, a transport company with expertise in moving heavy loads and special cargo worldwide.
Diego Buffoni, managing director of Berco Aftermarket, noted that the new warehouse will serve as a buffer between the world's largest undercarriage plant and the company’s dealers who require flexibility and short lead-times when purchasing from Berco’s extensive product range.
Berco has been part of the thyssenkrupp group since 1999 and joined the group’s Forged Technologies business, a supplier of components and systems, in 2018.
