Sandvik Mining and Construction gave customers and operators an opportunity to get an up close look at its latest equipment as it held the Sandvik in North America Construction 2010 event Oct. 19 and 20 Eureka Stone Quarry in Rushland, Pa.
Kemper Equipment was instrumental making the smoothly run event a reality after receiving a call from Sandvik Mining and Construction U.S. Vice President Jeff Heinemann.
“We only had six weeks to put it together when I got Jeff’s call,” said Gary Donecker, president of Kemper Equipment. “But I knew I had the perfect place in mind to hold the event. Eureka Stone’s a great, family-run business and they were a huge help to us in making the whole thing happen.”
While the live demonstration in the quarry’s bed featured Sandvik equipment drilling, breaking, crushing and screening, the event also provided a chance for Sandvik representatives to discuss the sometimes overlooked support system the company has in place to help its customers and operators get the maximum use from its equipment. Sandvik had full, multi-media displays of its aftermarket offerings and capabilities available — complete with Sandvik representatives offering further details —throughout the two-day event.
