DEALER AGREEMENTS WITH MACHBERT CO. (BRAZIL), STEWART & STEVENSON (COLOMBIA), AND KANU EQUIPMENT (SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA), TO PROVIDE WIDER REACH & IMPROVED SITE SUPPORT FOR GLOBAL CUSTOMERS 

As the mining world prepares to meet next week in Toronto for the annual PDAC convention, MacLean Engineering (“MacLean”) is pleased to announce the expansion of its global service and support platform, through the signing of three new in-country dealer agreements that will extend and enhance the company’s market reach in Brazil, Colombia, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Tanzania, Ghana, Zambia, Botswana, and Zimbabwe . 

The newly announced strategic alliances in South America and Africa will enable Maclean to offer its innovative underground mining vehicles and support services to the growing mining markets in these mining regions. Maclean has been operating in Latin America since the early 1990s, with branches in Peru and Mexico, along with in-country dealer partnerships in Chile (HRI), Ecuador (IASA), and Guatemala (Prosain). On the African continent, MacLean has been established in South Africa since the early 2000s, with branches in Parys and Phalaborwa, facilities and operations that continue to this day. 

“With their strong local technical and commercial knowledge, we are confident that through these collaborations we can meaningfully expand the reach of our value proposition in the global mining industry for Ground support, Secondary Reduction, and Production Support mining vehicles,” notes Stella Holloway, President, MacLean. “What’s more, we can also offer up battery electric mining vehicle (BEV) optionality across the majority of our product line, with 20+ models electrified to date, 60+ BEVs in the field, and 400,000+ hours logged since the launch of our Fleet Electrification program in 2016.” 

“Latin America and continental Africa are significant growth regions for us, and they both have huge potential for mining development and equipment innovation,” remarks said Tony Caron, Vice President, Global Sales, Maclean. “We are excited to partner with Stewart & Stevenson, Machbert, and Kanu Equipment, three well-established and reputable companies that share our vision for providing safe and productive mobile equipment solutions to the underground mining sector around the globe.” 

“We have been successful to date in growing our fleet presence outside of our home base in South Africa and have already expanded into underground mining hubs in Southern, Eastern, Central, and West Africa,” adds John-Paul Theunissen, General Manager, Africa, MacLean. “But to continue this growth curve outside of South Africa where we have an established branch network, we need to partner with in-country support specialists, so this is why our collaboration with Kanu Equipment makes so much sense as we pursue a common objective to support safety and productivity across the African mining sector.” 

Stewart & Stevenson Colombia is part of the Kirby Corporación group of companies and has 234 employees in Colombia. It provides heavy equipment service and parts support coverage across Colombia through five branches, with clients in the Mining, Oil & Gas, Agriculture, Transportation, Marine and Naval, Construction and Infrastructure sectors. Stewart & Stevenson will be the exclusive distributor of MacLean products in Colombia, as well as providing technical, spare parts, and training support. 

Machbert has been providing sales and aftermarket support in the Brazilian mining sector for over 30 years. The company was founded in 1992 and has been the exclusive distributor of Furukawa Rock Drill in Brazil since 2014. Machbert also offers a range of other hydraulic accessories for excavators, such as compactors, crushers, shears, and drills. Machbert will be the exclusive distributor of MacLean products in Brazil and will provide technical support, spare parts, and training. 

Kanu Equipment is a specialist in the supply and support of world-class earthmoving, mining, construction, road construction, agriculture, and forestry equipment. With spare parts distribution centres across the continent, Kanu Equipment has the people and the infrastructure in place to deliver customer service & support to MacLean as MacLean expands its continental fleet footprint on the African continent in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Tanzania in particular.
