June 1, 2017, John Deere announced its acquisition of the Wirtgen Group of Companies. Subsequently, October 1, 2019, SMS Equipment and Wirtgen Group of Companies announced their mutual
disassociation in the distribution of the Wirtgen product lines.
SMS Equipment continues to grow with and invest in the roadbuilding and construction industry as a leading, long-term, full-service dealership with new dealership agreements with two world-class manufacturers: BOMAG and Cemen Tech.
SMS Equipment President and CEO, Mike Granger, said, “SMS Equipment focuses on providing solutions and ensuring our road building and construction customers have access to the best products. We partner with world-class companies that also view customer support as their primary goal. Both BOMAG and Cemen Tech share our commitment to customer value, product innovation, and helping our customers thrive, and we look forward to growth through these dealership agreements.”
Effective December 1, 2019, SMS Equipment will become the BOMAG dealership, selling and supporting BOMAG compaction, milling, paving and reclaiming/ stabilizing equipment. BOMAG, founded in 1957, is the world market leader in the field of compaction technology and manufacturing of machines for the compaction of soils, asphalt and refuse, stabilizers/recyclers, land milling machines as well as finishers. Compaction equipment from BOMAG is used in areas as diverse as horticulture and landscaping through to the entire range of road construction and heavy dam construction. BOMAG provides special solutions for use on landfill sites of all sizes, as well as for recycling damaged asphalt pavement, and for soil stabilization.
“We are pleased with this new relationship and are proud to welcome SMS Equipment’s branches into the BOMAG network,” said Rob Mueckler, President of BOMAG Americas. “There is no doubt BOMAG has aligned itself with the most solutions and customer-service oriented dealer in the Canadian construction sector with its agreement with SMS Equipment. This collaboration will enable BOMAG to expand its position in the road building sector even more rapidly from coast-to-coast across Canada.”
Effective immediately, SMS Equipment will also sell and support Cemen Tech mobile concrete mixers, stationary concrete mixers, and cement storage silos for road building and construction. Cemen Tech has 50 years of manufacturing and engineering experience in the volumetric mixing industry. As the industry leader, the company strives to provide the highest quality concrete mixers to its customers. Cemen Tech currently operates in over 60 countries and services mixers across the globe. Their products provide the foundation and stability to meet the needs of a growing world in an environmentally conscious way.
“The relationship reflects Cemen Tech’s long-term goal to expand and strengthen its North American dealer network by partnering with seasoned, expert dealerships to serve the growing number of companies who want complete control over their concrete,” says Connor Deering, CEO & President of Cemen Tech. “We are certain our partnership with SMS Equipment will bring growth opportunities and unparalleled support to our Canadian customers.”
The addition of long-term agreements with these premier lines enables SMS Equipment to offer additional products and services that create value and growth in the road building and construction
sectors. Contact your local branch or sales representative for more information.
