Engcon grows Australian presence as tiltrotator awareness increases

ENGCON has revealed it is establishing a sales office in Australia to support growing demand for tiltrotators and quick hitches ‘down under’.

The new facility is located in western Sydney and includes technical sales support staff, an administration office, warehouse, spare parts and servicing. There will also be a demo area where customers can be trained on how to use Engcon products.

Engcon said it estimates that only 2-3% of the world’s excavators are equipped with a tiltrotator, meaning the untapped global sales potential is ‘huge’.

Stig Engström, founder of Engcon said, “We are a global company that has increased its presence in several geographic markets in recent years. For example, we see that we have had a successful introduction to the North American market recently and further strengthened our position in Europe. At the same time in the Pacific region and Australia we have over time seen a steadily increasing demand for our products.

“The potential in Australia is huge. The sales volume achieved so far in Australia is impressive, which may have to do with the fact that they are ‘early adopters’ and therefore accepted the technology quickly. The time feels right for us to establish our presence there.”
