Successful US dealer visit to Allu factoryPublished 15/9, 2017 at 10:33
Allu’s recently appointed North American soil stabilization equipment distributor Equipment Corporation of America has visited the Finnish company’s manufacturing facilities.
Leading members of the ECA management team embarked on a visit to Finland to see how the Allu equipment is manufactured at first hand. During their stay they were able to inspect the Allu factory and meet with Allu management and staff. “We were delighted to host our colleagues from ECA,” said Allu marketing manager Marjut Lindroos. “During our factory tour we were able to show ECA that the Allu equipment is manufactured to the very highest standards.”
ECA is a leading supplier of foundation construction equipment in the Eastern US and Eastern Canada for nearly a century. To provide its customers with more advanced equipment solutions, ECA expanded its offering to include the PMX Power Mixer and PF Pressure Feeder Soil Stabilization Systems from Allu. The agreement gives ECA exclusive rights to sell and rent these systems in the Eastern United States and Eastern Canadian Provinces.
The components, including the pressure feeder, power mixer, control system, and 3D positioning system, collectively function with an excavator to provide mass stabilization of low quality soils. The process involves mixing binder into soft soils such as peat, clay, sludge, and slurry to provide a stable layer for access. It can also encapsulate and process contaminated soils.
“Having ECA as the Allu stabilization equipment distributor will provide end users with the best service in the industry, specialized knowledge, and the finest equipment for soil stabilization and remediation,” said Allu North America president Edgar Chavez, “ECA and Allu share the same values when it comes to business ethics, customer satisfaction and retention, so this is an excellent partnership and we are excited to work with ECA as our long-term partner.”
