Sandvik appoints Fredheim Maskin AS as its new distributor for Mobile Crushing and Screening for the construction segment in Sweden

Continuing the development of the Scandinavian market, Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology is proud to announce the extension of the agreement with Fredheim Maskin AS to sell its Q-Range, U-440 and U-300 series of mobile screens and crushers into Sweden.

Sandvik has successfully been working with Fredheim Maskin for the sales and aftermarket support of its mobile crushing and screening range in Norway since 2015. As an established and reputable name throughout Norway for the supply of heavy equipment, Fredheim will be a great asset to further its growth of these specific products into the construction and contractor sectors in Sweden. The agreement covers Sandvik’s Q-Range, U-440 and U-300 series models.

Fredheim Maskin will stock a wide range of Sandvik Mobile crushers and screens providing quick delivery times, long- and short term rental agreements, as well as supplying aftermarket, technical support and finance. Spare- and wear parts will be shipped daily from their main stock in Spydeberg to customers in Norway and Sweden and a stock of new machines is already in place and available for immediate shipment at their facility in Karlstad.

On the appointment Marcello Pupino, Area Sales Manager for Sandvik Mobile Crushers and Screens commented “Our relationship with Fredheim Maskin has grown successfully over the past few years and we are delighted to extend their agreement to include Sweden. With their investment into the Swedish market, we will be able to provide faster delivery times to meet customer demand.”

Per Olav Fredheim, Managing Director of Fredheim Maskin said “Sandvik represents a very strong brand within the crushing and screening industry in Norway, Sweden and globally. Our team will do the utmost to make our appointment as Sandvik Mobiles' sales representative for the Swedish market a great success.”

On 6th and 7th May Fredheim Maskin will display the UJ440i, US440i and QJ341 for customers and members of the press at their facility in Karlstad. Anyone who is interested is welcome to visit from 10.00 until 15.00 on both days.
