SMT GB secures K-Tec scraper distributorship

SMT GB has announced it has been appointed the official distributor for K-Tec articulated hauler scraper boxes on mainland Britain.

K-Tec currently offers four sizes of scraper. SMT GB will be responsible for sales and after-market support.

“We are delighted to have been appointed as the official distributor for a product that complements our existing brand of construction equipment products,” explained SMT GB’s CEO Nick Allen. “We have worked with K-Tec Earthmoving Inc for a number of years and this agreement formalises our relationship with the Canadian-based company.

“Their range of scraper boxes, designed to be pulled by articulated haulers, is compatible with most of the Volvo range of trucks and will add another dimension to our existing product offering.”

Mike Palitsky, president and CFO of K-Tec Earthmovers added, “We could not be happier to welcome SMT GB to the K-Tec family. During our visit to SMT’s head office in Duxford, we were extremely impressed with the team and knew immediately that a partnership of the two organisations would be a great fit. The marriage of Volvo ADT’s with the K-Tec scrapers has proven to be an excellent one and we are continuing to promote this very cost effective and efficient concept worldwide.

“This agreement solidifies K-Tec’ s expansion into the UK market and we are very proud to be partnered with SMT to position both companies for future growth. We look forward to a long and successful relationship.”
