Multiquip Inc. last week finalized an agreement with Switzerland’s Ammann Schweiz AG to serve as the exclusive distributor for Ammann’s tandem vibratory rollers in North America, plus in several Latin American and Caribbean nations.
Under terms of the agreement, Multiquip will market 1.5- to 5-ton weight class tandem and combination rollers. The rollers are the next generation of Ammann’s AV Series asphalt rollers and feature high-frequency vibration, operator comfort, advanced safety features, and a maintenance-free service concept, the company says.
“We are excited about this opportunity as it completes the MQ line of confined area and medium range construction equipment,” said Roger Euliss, Multiquip president.
Marketed as the AR Series tandem vibratory rollers, the units will carry the MQ/Rammax brand name to complement Multiquip’s full line of light and medium-sized compaction equipment, which already includes rammers, plate compactors, and trench and asphalt rollers.
Based in Carson, Calif., Multiquip is a supplier of compaction equipment, concrete and masonry cutting, placing and finishing products, power generation equipment, dewatering pumps and other construction equipment.
