Hitachi appoint Latvian dealer
Japanese manufacturer strengthens distribution network in Latvia with appointment of Repa
HITACHI Construction Machinery (Europe) NV (HCME) have announced the appointment of a new dealer for their customers in Latvia. Riga-based Repa SIA have taken over from the previous dealers Laadur OU, and are a subsidiary of the Mono Group, one of the largest enterprises in Latvia with businesses specializing in highways engineering, transport and finance.
The Latvian construction market has grown significantly since 2010, with increases across all product categories including crawler and wheeled excavators and wheel loaders. The mini excavator market experienced the largest increase, and Hitachi believe the overall market provides ‘a great opportunity for HCME and their new dealer’.
Repa Managing Director Yuri Ivanov said: ‘We are delighted to be the official Hitachi construction machinery dealer for Latvia. The brand is well known in our country, but there is still huge potential to increase market share, particularly in the general construction, road construction and quarrying sectors.
‘We have 21 years of experience in the industrial equipment market, so we will initially start by offering Hitachi products to our existing customers. Our future strategy involves participating in domestic trade shows and exhibitions, working directly with potential customers and supporting customers with used Hitachi equipment.’
