Sandvik Construction Dealer Conference at New Centre of Excellence

From the 12th-15th January Sandvik Construction Mobile Crushers and Screens held a Dealer Conference at its new centre of excellence in Ballygawley, Northern Ireland. The event saw dealers from all over the world join Sandvik for a series of seminars, workshops and presentations, as well as hearing about the latest developments concerning the world-leading Product Line.

Delaer ConferenceSandvik Construction Mobile Crushers and Screens hosted its inaugural Global Dealer Conference with 75 people from almost 50 dealers from across the world taking part. The program of events took place from the 12th – 15th January, and consisted of an agenda of keynote sessions and workshops held at the Slieve Russell hotel in Ireland. This was followed by an impressive product display at the new Centre of Excellence in Ballygawley, Northern Ireland.

The Dealer Conference also provided the opportunity to bring together the global network of experienced dealers to discuss key areas of business growth in 2015. This opportunity of bringing together such a breadth of industry experience ensured that the preferences and requirements of the global customer base continue to be met, and exceeded.

The final day of the conference saw the guests transported to the new Centre of Excellence in Ballygawley. This impressive site is now the major hub of manufacturing for Sandvik mobile crushing and screening equipment in the UK. The guests were able to undertake a tour to fully appreciate the modern production facilities, and see the complete manufacturing process from start to finish.

Mobile units on displayArrayed across the centre was an outstanding product display of eight machines from the market leading range of mobile equipment of jaw, cone and impact crushers, screens and scalping equipment. The display represented only a fraction of the product portfolio available, but showcased some of the bestselling models from the range, all built and developed to meet the needs of Sandvik's global customer base.

Crushers on display included the bestselling QJ341 jaw crusher, the largest in the Sandvik Premium range of tracked jaw crushers, the innovative QH331 Hydrocone and QS331 "S" type gyratory cone crushers, as well as the high performing UH440i cone crusher from the HD range of equipment. The hanging screen system, an optional feature of the QI341 Prisec™ impactor, was also showcased. The hanging screen allows customers an even greater return on investment through the facility to produce accurately sized products for immediate use.

From the range of pioneering screening solutions the new QA441 Doublescreen was a major attraction; this being the largest two deck tracked mobile screen equipped with Sandvik's patented, world class Doublescreen. This unique system has two high velocity screens working independently to each other, offering both primary and secondary screening on one plant. Customers are able to benefit from the exceptional flexibility and massive throughput.

The Dealers were also introduced to two new additions to the Premium range to be launched later this year: the QE441 scalper and QA335 Doublescreen which utilise the very latest in screening and scalping technology.

Eugene Lyons, Global Sales Director for Sandvik Construction Mobiles, commented on the event: "We were delighted that so many of our global dealers were able to attend our conference in Ireland. This event provided the perfect platform to share our goals and vision and to be open and honest about our targets for 2015 so we can work to grow the business together".

Overall, the conference represented not only Sandvik Construction's commitment to its dealer network and their mutual success, but also reinforces its position in the marketplace as a key manufacturer of mobile crushing and screening equipment. The Centre of Excellence represents a step forward for the business with a continued commitment to quality, service and equipment, designed and manufactured with customers' needs in mind.
