Blastcrete rolls out new distribution partnership

Alabama-based shotcrete, gunite and concrete pump maker Blastcrete Equipment has created a distribution and service partnership with Italian concrete equipment manufacturer Mecbo Srl, creating Mecbo America.

Mecbo America, a division of Blastcrete, will provide customers in North, Central and South America access to its products, enhance the Blastcrete offering with new models designed around Mecbo pump technology and ensure a solid parts and service support network throughout North America.

Blastcrete said it will leverage Mecbo-designed products with its capability to modify and customize the equipment design to customer specifications; it also plans to integrate Mecbo pump technology into its own trailer-mounted pump designs to meet customers’ needs in pool installation, deep foundation installation and other high-volume applications.

Among Mecbo America’s line-up: the Benton Cap concrete mixer and the CARTRACK P6. The Benton Cap is a mixer-pump installed on an axle with a crawler undercarriage, and the CARTRACK P6 pumping unit can be installed on crawlers, wheels, trucks or tracks.

Both models allow customers to choose between an electric or diesel engine, with a sound-proof option for diesel. Each also contains a work and maintenance station, water tank, and radio control for handling. Mecbo Americas will also offer the Scorpion, Robotrack, and Car Cingolo.

“Blastcrete is well known and trusted in the North American market and has a team with specialized knowledge in concrete pumping and placement as well as servicing concrete pumps,” said Mecbo Communications Director Daniella Tarozzi.

“This partnership will ensure customers get the best product solutions for their application and local support and service.”

“We are incredibly excited to partner with Mecbo. This agreement allows us to expand our quality equipment offerings to our customers,” added Blastcrete Co-CEO Scott Knighton. “It’s a win for Blastcrete, for Mecbo, and most importantly, it is a win for our current and prospective customers across the Americas.”
