Piling equipment specialist Piletec has set up a separate division to focus on multi-purpose attachments to meet ever-increasing demand.
The company already offered excavator-mounted vibrators and pile breakers under the Piltec banner but the range will now be expanded. The hydraulic attachment range is expected to include mini crushers and shears, multi-processors, grabs, hydraulic compactors and hammers, and digging and re-handling clamshells.
Piletec has said that the move is partly designed to open up new markets in a bid to become the leading attachment supplier in the £60M UK market within three years.
“Previously we had focused on supplying equipment allied to the piling industry but we found we were losing hires because people wanted a one-stop-shop for attachments which are increasingly being used to save costs,” said Piletec director Bill Gorton.
“This new business is a natural extension to our current offerings within Piletec and as well as meeting our customers’ needs also gives us access to revenue sectors which will benefit from the decades of experience our personnel have built up offering guidance on the best solutions.”
