Scottish hauler manufacturer looks to increase French connections

SCOTTISH articulated hauler manufacturer Rokbak has announced plans to take part in France’s premier construction machinery roadshow Le Dig Tour for the first time this summer.

The 28-tonne Rokbak RA30 will appear at several Le Dig Tour events in Rennes, Mulhouse, and Brignoles, underscoring the firm’s plans to expand its presence in France.

“The 30-tonne trucks are a major part of the French ADT market due to ease of transportation to sites,” explained Paul Culliford, Rokbak regional sales manager EMEA. “Rokbak trucks are robust and reliable articulated haulers that will benefit construction projects in France and deliver new benchmarks in both performance and total cost of ownership.

“We will be on the ground during Le Dig Tour with an operator to display the RA30, allowing people to get up close and see exactly what we’re talking about via live demonstrations.”

Now in its fourth season, Le Dig Tour consists of five regional events in France. The roadshow is a manufacturer-led outdoor event centred on OEMs demonstrating equipment and solutions for public works specialists.

Rokbak currently works with three dealers in France. Manu Lorraine Group covers the north-east of the country, Framateq the south-east, and Griset Matériel the Rhône-Alpes region.”
