Astec partners with Unatrac to improve Africa offering

Through its Africa and Middle East business units, Astec Industries entered a partnership with Unatrac, which includes Mantrac group, one of the world’s largest Caterpillar (Cat) dealers, in November 2021. The partnership promises to enhance the supply, distribution, support, and after-sales service of Astec’s material solutions product range to numerous African countries, as well as in Iraq and Russia’s Ural and Volga regions.

The new distribution alliance will see Unatrac, including Mantrac and Delta groups, offering sales and support services in Nigeria, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Egypt, Iraq and the Ural and Volga regions in Russia for all the equipment in Astec Industries’ Material Solutions division.

Douglas Mouton, Astec Industries’ regional sales manager – East Africa & Middle East, commented, “This agreement demonstrates Astec’s commitment to exceeding the expectations of customers in these regions. We want to ensure that in addition to having access to Astec’s exceptional material solutions products, our aggregate and mining industry customers have the peace of mind, ease and convenience of an experienced and outstanding in-country presence.” Adding that the move also forms part of Astec Industries’ strategy to increase its global footprint.

M. Eltobshy, group technical manager at Unatrac, says that the organisation has well-established in-country partners across its territories, all of which have deep local knowledge, experience, and expertise. “Our aim is to offer mines and quarries in our Unatrac territories a full package, from earth moving equipment and crushing plants to power systems. The alliance will add enormous value for both Unatrac (including Mantrac Group and Delta Group) and Astec’s customers in these regions. We look forward to embarking on this exciting journey with Astec and know that it will be a mutual success.”
