New distributor for Sandvik Mobile Crushers and Screens in Malaysia

Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology is delighted to announce the appointment of Wedago (WDG) as its new sole distributor for mobile crushers and screens in Malaysia.

Sandvik’s world-leading mining and construction equipment offering needs no introduction; and now customers throughout Malaysia will be able to benefit from even greater levels of support through its new distributor WDG. WDG will not only be supplying Sandvik’s comprehensive range of mobile crushing and screening equipment, but full aftermarket support to their customers.

WDG Resources SDN. BHD, a member of Wah Seong Corporation Berhad, was formed by personnel with more than 30 years’ expertise and experiences in the power generation & construction equipment industries. WDG is an established distributor in the region and expects Sandvik’s industry-leading products to perfectly complement their existing offering.

WDG’s facility is located strategically in Bukit Kemuning and has a dedicated team of service personnel with eight branches throughout Malaysia, namely in Kelantan, Johor Bahru, Kuantan, Klang Valley, Butterworth, Sibu Kuching and Kota Kinabalu.

The appointment of such a well-established and experienced dealer reinforces Sandvik’s commitment to customer focus, through the provision of locally focused support, whilst at the same time allowing customers to benefit from dealing with a global company.

Paulo Prazeres, Sales Manager for Sandvik Mobiles in Asia says that working with such an established and respected distributor will open up new opportunities and enable Sandvik to strengthen our position in the market.

“We are delighted to work with such a trusted supplier. Their industry expertise and local customer knowledge provides great synergies with our products. This, combined with their strong aftermarket support, will enable us to take our growth to the next level.”

Mr Goh Eng Hooi, Group CEO for the Infrastructure Trading and Services Division that owns WDG Resources, says WDG is committed to providing the best products and services at all times.

"The appointment of WDG as a Sandvik dealer will have a positive impact on the Division’s structure in terms of product diversification that is synergistic to our existing market sectors. This aligns with our related business in building materials and infrastructure equipment as many of our current customers and suppliers also operate in quarrying, batching plants and related industries in which Sandvik has a presence.

“We recognize Sandvik as a respectable and reputable brand in the global market and would like to thank them for their confidence in the Group and for giving us an opportunity to represent them in Malaysia. It is truly an honour!"

The appointment of WDG Sandvik’s official distributor was effective from March 2019. The Sandvik Mobile Crushers and Screens team offer them congratulations and would like to welcome them as part of the global Sandvik family.
