HITACHI Construction Machinery (Europe) NV (HCME) have appointed Ergotrak SA as the exclusive distributor of their full range of construction equipment in Greece.
Having supplied Hitachi mining excavators and rigid dumptrucks since 2004, Ergotrak have now expanded their range to include Zaxis excavators (mini, medium, large and wheeled), ZW wheel loaders and Hitachi Sumitomo crawler cranes.
The company has 95 employees based at three locations in Athens and Thessaloniki. Facilities at the largest site in the Athens suburb of Mandra include sales and administration offices, workshops, a spare parts sales and distribution depot, and a training centre.
In 2014 Ergotrak reported a turnover of €17.7 million.
Ergotrak were founded in 1958 under the name of Gemsov and were initially active in the distribution of Soviet machine tools. In 2008 they was acquired by the Greek Sfakianakis Group.
In addition to mining and construction equipment, the company is active in three other sectors: heavy commercial vehicles (trucks, tractors, buses and coaches); forklifts and industrial trucks for material handling; and diesel engines for land and marine use, and power generation.
‘We have 30 years of experience in the Greek earthmoving market and are strengthening their position in this sector,’ said Ergotrak’s sales manager, Spiros Andarakis.
‘We are delighted to build upon our already successful co-operation with HCME. Our customers will now benefit from the full range of Hitachi construction equipment, which is renowned for its reliability and durability, and is therefore ideal for the tough conditions in our territory.’
