French manufacturer Haulotte has appointed Centrocar as its aerial lift distributor in Angola and Mozambique, taking its independent distribution network in Africa to 14 partners.
The two Centrocar companies are part of the Portuguese-based distribution group which was established in 1973, opening operations in Angola in 2008 and Mozambique in 2011. Both companies also sell Bobcat telehandlers, a range of earthmoving equipment and forklifts from Doosan along with Deutz Fahr tractors.
Centrocar Mozambique is based in Maputo (Matola) with a second location in Beira. Centrocar Angola is based on the east side of Luanda.
Didier Mertens, general manager at Haulotte Africa, said: “We are very excited about our new partnership. With this new collaboration the subsidiary will be able to better address the African customers’ needs. Centrocar is a trusted partner and is recognised for its commitment to customer service excellence."
