By Steve Ducker22 November 2021
Netherlands-based Demarec and Steelwrist of Sweden have signed a cooperation agreement for the SQ range of fully automatic quick coupler systems.
The announcement comes as the two companies report growing global demand for fully systems for excavators in demolition and construction, and the range of products covered includes the SQ90, recently launched by Steelwrist as its biggest model so far.
Other models in the agreement are the SQ60, SQ65, SQ70, SQ70/55 and SQ80. All follow the Open-S industry standard for fully automatic couplers for excavators.
Demarec has more than 25 years of experience in the sector and managing director Marcel Vening said: “We know the advantages of the fully automatic couplers in combination with our demolition and recycling equipment like no other.
“In the past few years, supply and demand in the market of automatic quick coupler systems has undergone a significant change.
“Nowadays, more suppliers of such systems are active on the market to meet the continuously growing demand for fully automatic systems.”
Steelwrist CEO Stefan Stockhaus added: “Owners and operators are really starting to adopt to the fully automatic coupler technology, and in the demolition industry it is moving toward a must in many countries.
“With the Steelwrist SQ and Qplus technology we can support Demarec directly from the factory. With its focus on quality products and support, Demarec is a manufacturer that we are very happy to work with.”
