Creighton Rock Drill (CRD) is to distribute and service Breaker Technology’s (BTI) underground mining vehicles, rockbreaker systems, and hydraulic breaker attachments in the key Sudbury market as part of a recently signed agreement.
The move comes as both companies look to improve their customer service and support in the mining industry, BTI said.
Under the terms of the agreement, CRD will sell capital equipment and parts, as well as service BTI equipment from its location in Lively, Ontario. CRD has been BTI’s distributor for construction and aggregate equipment for the past 18 years.
Al Creighton, Senior Vice President of CRD, said: “We’ve had a location in Lively now for over three years and are looking to grow our team with people that can understand our key values of service first as a way to promote sales. We will do that through attention to detail, local parts stocks for fast turnarounds on order fulfillment and by listening to our customers. It is important to us to build the BTI and CRD brands together as a symbol of quality and reliability in the mining sector.”
BTI said Creighton will be promoting BTI’s line of underground equipment including the extensive range of rockbreaker systems such as the MRHLP low-profile model and the PB series for rockbreaking directly at the grizzly ore pass.
CRD will also promote BTI’s mining vehicles including its latest mechanical underground scaler, ScaleBOSS 3D/ 3DE, the Mine Runner underground utility vehicle (pictured), RMS Scaler, Vibratory Pick Scaler and Hammer Feed Scaler.
