Astec Industries, Inc. through its regional office Astec Industries Africa Middle East and Aramine have signed a distribution contract at the beginning of June 2020, appointing the French company Aramine as the official dealer of Astec Material Solutions products in a number of strategic countries in West Africa (Mauritania, Mali, Senegal, Guinea, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, Benin, Togo, Niger) and the Maghreb (Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco).
According to Jaime Martel, Key Regional & Product Manager and Head of Distribution Partnerships at Aramine: “The confidence of Astec Industries, Inc. is a recognition of our longstanding partnership which has so far only been with the BTI range of rock breaker and boom systems. The extension of the offer to all products of the Material Solutions Group, previously known as the Aggregate and Mining Division, will enable us to respond more broadly to the needs of our customers on the African continent.”
In addition to its recognised expertise and technical service, Aramine relies on its subsidiaries and partners in the region and says it is “doing its utmost to strengthen the presence of Astec Industries, Inc. in the countries concerned by this agreement.”
“With the expansion of the Astec portfolio distributed by Aramine, this is an important evolution in our commercial relations, as we collaborate in very active and demanding markets in West Africa and the Maghreb. With this partnership, we are developing a new customer proximity offer, combining expertise, services and quality products,” said Vinesh Surajlall, Director – Material Solutions, at Astec Africa Middle East.
