Doosan and Engcon investing in Europe together

Doosan and Engcon have entered into an agreement regarding increased collaboration in Europe. The first Doosan excavators factory-fitted to be equipped with Engcon’s tiltrotators, control systems and hitches are being delivered during the autumn.

The collaboration means that excavator manufacturer Doosan will be factory-fitting its excavators in Europe for control systems, hitches and tiltrotators from the manufacturer Engcon. The first tiltrotator-ready Doosan excavators will be rolling off the production line during autumn 2019.

“The advantage for our end customers is that they will enjoy much faster deliveries – the excavator they buy will be prepared for an Engcon tiltrotator. This is an important step in our efforts to continually improve our service,” explains Krister Blomgren, CEO of Engcon.

A tiltrotator can make excavation work up to 50 per cent more efficient. Moreover, aspects such as improved safety and a reduced impact on the environment are strong arguments for using the tiltrotator technology. More and more markets are recognising the potential embodied within Engcon’s products and the way they streamline and develop the work. The long-term goal is to increase collaboration from only covering Europe to encompassing the world.

“Our products have long been a Nordic phenomenon, and we are now witnessing a clear trend whereby Europe is starting to open up to the use of both tiltrotators and our systems. As a result, preparing excavators is a smooth way of reaching more end customers,” says Krister Blomgren, CEO of Engcon.

Both Doosan and Engcon view the excavator as a tool carrier that replaces other machines. Using an automatic quick hitch in combination with a tiltrotator makes it easy to change tools, providing a more flexible and efficient way of working

Doosan Infracore Europe Marketing Communications Manager, Kevin Lynch, commented further. "We are pleased to use Engcon as one of our partners for control systems and tiltrotators. Due to the strong growth of this market, our partnership will provide greater working efficiency in responding to the demand of our dealers and customers" 

The collaboration also means that Doosan and Engcon will be participating at various trade fairs and events together. The first official joint appearance will be at Quarry Days, near Prague in the Czech Republic, on 17-19 September. The event is for specially invited dealers from all over Europe, giving them the opportunity to try out various machines, learn more about new technology and ask questions about the products.
