Deal confirms Doosan as sole supplier of new wheel loaders for CEMEX’s European operations
DOOSAN Infracore Europe B.V. have announced an order for around 100 new Doosan wheel loaders from CEMEX.
Under the newly agreed deal, Doosan have been confirmed as sole supplier of new wheel loaders for CEMEX’s European operations, covering facilities in France, the UK, Germany, Poland, the Czech Republic and Spain.
Commenting on the order, Gilles Bendaoud, vice-president of sales and marketing for Europe with Doosan Infracore Europe, said: ‘We are delighted to finalize this agreement…for the supply of new Doosan wheel loaders for CEMEX operations in Europe.
‘We are very pleased in the confidence shown by CEMEX in Doosan as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of quarrying and construction equipment and in the Doosan range of wheel loaders.
‘Doosan intend to build a long-term partnership with CEMEX for their construction equipment requirements.’
The new agreement covers Doosan wheel loaders with bucket capacities from 2.2 to 6.0 cubic metres, to meet a wide range of loading and handling applications.
The first wheel loader, a DL550-5, was recently delivered to La Ventrouze in France, the first CEMEX production site to take delivery of a new machine under the agreement.
CEMEX say the new relationship with the Doosan Group is part of their strategy to reduce their cost base through challenging traditional operating practices and the development of new solutions.
