MacLean Engineering expands global footprint

MacLean Engineering has signed three new in-country dealer agreements that will extend its global service and support platform.

The newly announced strategic alliances with Machbert Co. (Brazil), Stewart & Stevenson (Colombia), and Kanu Equipment (sub-Saharan Africa) will enable Maclean to offer its underground mining vehicles and support services to the growing mining markets in these regions.

“With their strong local technical and commercial knowledge, we are confident that through these collaborations we can meaningfully expand the reach of our value proposition in the global mining industry for Ground support, Secondary Reduction, and Production Support mining vehicles,” said MacLean President Stella Holloway. 

“What’s more, we can also offer up battery electric mining vehicle (BEV) optionality across the majority of our product line, with 20-plus models electrified to date, 60-plus BEVs in the field, and 400,000-plus hours logged since the launch of our Fleet Electrification program in 2016.” 

MacLean has been operating in Latin America since the early 1990s, with branches in Peru and Mexico, along with in-country dealer partnerships in Chile (HRI), Ecuador (IASA), and Guatemala (Prosain). MacLean has been established in South Africa since the early 2000s, with branches in Parys and Phalaborwa, facilities and operations that continue to this day.

“Latin America and continental Africa are significant growth regions for us, and they both have huge potential for mining development and equipment innovation,” said Tony Caron, vice president, Global Sales. 

“We are excited to partner with Stewart & Stevenson, Machbert, and Kanu Equipment, three well-established and reputable companies that share our vision for providing safe and productive mobile equipment solutions to the underground mining sector around the globe.”
