Quarrying, mining, and construction companies to benefit from Rokbak haulers through local dealer HMD

SCOTTISH articulated hauler manufacturers Rokbak, a member of the Volvo Group, have partnered with Heavy Machinery Dealership (HMD), providers of construction, mining, and quarrying equipment in West Africa.

Founded in 2003, HMD have established a strong reputation as a specialized distributor of premium heavy machinery and parts and are dedicated to contributing to Africa’s infrastructure development.


As an experienced local partner, HMD will help bring Rokbak articulated dumptrucks (ADTs) to an established customer base in Nigeria, Ghana, Senegal, Benin, Guinea, and Cote d’Ivoire, together with strong spare parts availability and after-sales support.

‘Rokbak have an excellent reputation, and our customers know and trust the Volvo brand,’ said HMD chief executive officer Matthew Khouri. ‘Rokbak haulers will complement our product portfolio well, offering the thriving mining, quarrying and construction industries in West Africa a reliable and efficient ADT.’

The construction market in Africa is currently estimated at US$58.42 billion and is expected to reach US$74.81 billion by 2029. West Africa’s construction industry, in particular, is experiencing substantial growth, driven by urbanization and infrastructure development, and the demand for reliable, high-performance machinery is at an all-time high.

‘Our partnership with Rokbak represents a significant advancement for our customers in West Africa and continues our vision to become the leading supplier of heavy machinery in Africa through customizing solutions to customers’ needs,’ said Mr Khouri.

‘Rokbak’s robust and reliable haulers are perfect for the region’s requirements. We look forward to working closely with Rokbak to enhance the capabilities of our customers and contribute to the development of the local infrastructure and important applications in the region.’

Rokbak’s managing director, Paul Douglas, commented: ‘We are delighted to partner with HMD in West Africa. Their reputation for excellence and customer satisfaction aligns perfectly with Rokbak and the Volvo Group’s values.

‘This partnership is testament to our commitment in expanding our global reach and supporting customers in even more territories in the construction, quarrying, and mining industries. Our high-quality haulers combined with HMD’s vast experience and local expertise will deliver exceptional value to our customers.’
