Metso Outotec has expanded its distributor network in South East Asia, with the appointment of Phu Thai Cat (PTC) as an official dealer of its aggregates product range in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.
Serving customers across the region, PTC employs around 380 people across fiver branches.
It is the sole authorised distributor for Caterpillar in Vietnam and provides construction and mining equipment, as well as genuine parts, maintenance, repair, warranty services.
The new deal Metso will see PTC offer the manufacturer’s mobile, portable, and stationary crushing and screening equipment, which Metso said will enable to meet a growing demand in the region.
According to Metso, which earlier this year launched its e-Power range of hybrid Lokotrack equipment, the “demand for aggregates in the territory is estimated to grow significantly in the coming few years thanks to the implementation of major infrastructure projects.”
Shaun Fanning, vice president of distribution management for Asia Pacific at Metso Outotec, said: “The combination of high market demand for aggregates solutions in the region and a professional partner like Phu Thai Cat, we look forward to an effective cooperation to grow our business.
“Most importantly we expect that with the cooperation our aggregates customers will enjoy better availability of our aggregates solutions and products, complemented by PTC’s strong local resources and support.”
PTC will offer the manufacturer’s Lokotrack and Nordtrack track-mounted equipment, its NW Series wheel-mounted equipment, and its Nordberg C-Series jaw crushers and GP and HP-Series cone crushers.
In addition to Metso’s NP-Series and Barmac impact crushers, HRC grinding rolls, vibrating equipment, and conveyor belts, PTC will also provide related wear parts and parts, such as crusher wears, O-Series wears, Trellex screening media and Contender Series parts.
“The cooperation allows us to provide alternative, high-efficiency solutions to aggregates customers,” said Trinh Duc Thang, general director, Phu Thai Cat.
“The combination of high quality Metso Outotec aggregates solutions and our already proven product support capability will benefit the customers and help us to develop another profitable business by expanding the customer base while finding new opportunities with existing clients.”
