Powerscreen has had a long and very successful history in Norway. Many of the very first Powerscreen machines exported from Northern Ireland went to Scandinavia and many of these customers have continued to buy Powerscreen machines since.
Official Powerscreen dealer for Norway is Scandia Maskin and this week they brought a delegation of 50 customers to Northern Ireland to spend time getting to know the Powerscreen machines, manufacturing centres of excellence and support teams.
Powerscreen Marketing Manager, Dearbhaile Mulholland said, “It has been a pleasure to this week welcome our friends from Norway. We are very grateful that busy people have taken time away from their quarries, mines and operations to spend this time with us. Through the decades Powerscreen has developed and maintained many strong relationships with Norwegian companies. By participating in our Customer Experience program and enjoying local hospitality at our Irish party in Belfast I’m certain these bonds have been strengthened.”
Andreas Arnesan is CEO of Scandia Maskin and firmly believes in the importance and value of these types of events. “Powerscreen screening and crushing equipment in Norway has a very strong reputation. We still have machines in Norway which were commissioned in the 1970s and which are operational to this day. Scandia Maskin hosts these trips to allow customers to see the scale of precision manufacturing at Powerscreen and to see the skill which goes into crafting every machine, making them some of the hardest wearing in the industry.
He continues, “customers are also very impressed when we visit the enormous global spare parts hub with millions of items in stock for quick dispatch when required. Seeing is believing and this customer support is second to none.”
Powerscreen Headquarters in Dungannon is just 1 hour from both Belfast airports and 2 hours from Dublin airport. Existing and potential customers can participate in the Powerscreen Customer Experience program, more details on factory visits are available from local Powerscreen dealers worldwide.
