Nov. 19, 2019, Regina, Sask. – The Brandt Group of Companies has announced the formation of a new division, specifically designed to serve the needs of the Canadian aggregate industry.

The new business unit, Brandt Mineral Technology, will operate across a Canada-wide footprint through the company’s Brandt Tractor locations, now the country’s only coast-to-coast-to-coast construction equipment network.

In support of this new division, Brandt has also announced plans to open two Mineral Technology centres of excellence; one in Milton, Ont. and the other in Calgary, Alta.

“Brandt has built strong working relationships with many Canadian aggregate contractors through our John Deere business over the years, but we wanted to do more for them.” says Brandt president and CEO, Shaun Semple. “For the aggregate market, we’ve worked hard to assemble the best possible combination of equipment and industry expertise to do what we can to ensure success for our customers.”

Following on the heels of the company’s recent appointment as the exclusive Canadian dealer for Wirtgen Group roadbuilding and aggregate equipment, Brandt’s Mineral Technology division will focus specifically on sales and support services for John Deere construction equipment along with the Wirtgen Group’s line of Kleemann aggregate crushing/screening/washing machines. A global market leader, the Kleemann line is known industry-wide for cutting edge performance and environmental technologies, including innovative processes for noise and dust suppression

To support the division’s lineup of premium equipment, Brandt has assembled a team of experienced industry professionals; highly-specialized and focused exclusively on this business. And, aggregate contractors now have access to over 100 service points across the country as a result of Brandt’s recent acquisition of Nortax Canada on October 28, 2019.
