Engcon has expanded its presence in North America with a larger headquarters.

Engcon North America (Engcon NA) has moved to new, larger premises with a larger warehouse, and has named Morten Solgaard managing director.

Solgaard comes from Scania, the Swedish OEM for heavy trucks and buses, where he held various roles for the past 22 years, primarily in the sales and service field.

Engcon says its business continues to grow despite the ongoing pandemic contributing to one of the worst quarters in modern history.

“Engcon North America is in an expansive phase right now," says Anders Smith, regional director at Engcon. "We grew significantly in 2019 and had a very successful participation at Conexpo, one of the world's largest trade shows. There, visitors got to test drive excavators equipped with Engcon's tiltrotator and our other smart products. Interest in our products has increased since then, which means that we are now shifting to a higher gear with a new head of Engcon NA and new premises.

"We have moved both offices and the central warehouse to a new facility in Hamden, Connecticut, to handle our continued growth," Smith says. "The new premises are approximately 13,000 square feet, three times as large as the previous one. But above all, the new building is adapted for our business.”

Despite the pandemic, orders to Engcon North America increased by 50 percent from January to June 2020, compared with the same period last year. Sales have increased to both small and large companies and to all sizes of excavators. Unlike last year when they were mainly sold to small machines, this year the demand has been for the entire range of excavators from 1.5 to 33 tonnes, the company says.

”There is an enormous potential to streamline excavation in North America," Smith says. "All players will benefit if the excavators become more efficient, more environmentally friendly and safer. Fitted with Engcon's tiltrotator and smart accessories our goal is to 'Change the world of digging' and hope that as many people as possible join us."
