26th March 2021

Anaconda Equipment are very pleased to announce the appointment of Vermeer Equipment Suppliers (Pty) Ltd as the exclusive distributor for Southern Africa. Vermeer Equipment Suppliers will supply the extensive Anaconda Range including Crushing, Screening, Feeding, Washing Equipment and Conveying Equipment.

As with all Anaconda dealers Vermeer will stock genuine Anaconda spare parts within their facility to provide a professional, competitive and supportive service mechanism to all customers within their region. The countries within Southern Africa which Vermeer will serve include South Africa, Lesotho, eSwatini, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia.

Currently Vermeer Equipment Suppliers are exclusive distributors for the US-based Vermeer Manufacturing Company. They offer a full line of high-quality utility, pipeline, surface mining, tree care, landscape, recycling, forestry and agricultural equipment. With 17 years expertise in these sectors Vermeer Equipment Suppliers have now decided to broaden their offering with the complete Anaconda Equipment range of Crushers, Incline Screens, Scalping Screens, Trommel Screens, Washing Equipment and Mobile Conveyors.

Joe McCormack, Anaconda Equipment – International Sales Manager said:

“We are very excited to be working with Frank and everyone at Vermeer Equipment Suppliers. Vermeer have established themselves for 17 years now as a reliable partner of choice with strong relationship building and dedication to their customers. I look forward to seeing Vermeer build a strong network across the recycling, quarrying and mining sectors of Southern Africa. Vermeer possess all the key values and core qualities we look for in a partner and I am eager to continue developing a long-standing working partnership over the coming years.”

Frank Beerthuis, Dealer Principal at Vermeer Equipment Suppliers had this to say on the partnership:

“We have been in business for nearly 20 years in Southern Africa and the recent economic developments in region had reduced our opportunities for organic growth within existing fields of operation. I sensed a lot of cultural similarities between the Anaconda organization and ourselves and I think we share the same business ethics, passion for product, passion for customer engagement and a desire to grow each of our companies. Anaconda and ourselves joining forces with a can-do mentality will certainly lead to a successful partnership. The Anaconda range broadens our offering and complements our existing Vermeer range of continuous surface mining machines perfectly. There are many opportunities for Crushing, Screening, Washing and Stacking equipment in the mining, quarrying and aggregate industries. We look forward with genuine confidence to finding and capturing these opportunities as we extend our market reach with this young vibrant and forward-thinking company – Anaconda.”
