Volvo partners with Allied for breaker sale and support
Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo) and Allied Construction Products LLC (Allied) have entered into an agreement for the sale and support of Allied hydraulic breakers. The partnership was created to offer customers more options in breakers and other aftermarket attachments in North America, and results in the addition of 40 models to Volvo dealer product offerings, including the Allied flagship Rammer and Hy-Ram hydraulic breakers and Ho-Pac and Skid-Pac compactor/drivers. Comparable Volvo-branded products in North America will be discontinued with this new partnership.
"We understand that the availability of a broad range of high quality breakers is important to our customers. Instead of competing with industry leaders like Allied, who exclusively sell breakers, we can work together to better serve our customers," said Mark Mohn, director of attachments, Sales Region Americas, Volvo. "This partnership will help our dealers strengthen their ability to serve customers with an expanded range of products and best-in-class support from the breaker specialists at Allied."
Headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, Allied brings more than 75 years of experience and expertise in the breaker market to the partnership. Allied offers a product line that includes 33 boom-mounted hydraulic hammer models and seven boom-mounted vibratory compactors/drivers.
Volvo dealers will order and receive breakers and relevant parts directly from Allied. Allied will provide service, parts and warranty support, and will also support the existing population of Volvo-branded hammers in the field.
"We are pleased to offer Volvo and its dealers the market-leading products and support from Allied. Rest assured this is all we do — we pay attention," said Philip M. Paranic, president and CEO of Allied.
