In 2017, McLanahan Corp. began a partnership with Anaconda Equipment of Northern Ireland to distribute and sell Anaconda’s line of mobile track equipment. As the relationship between the two companies progressed, it became clear that their values and business styles were closely aligned. This week, the two companies announced that Anaconda Equipment will officially join McLanahan’s family of companies upon legal closing within the next 30 to 60 days.
“We looked into growing our line of track equipment in several different ways,” said Sean McLanahan, CEO of McLanahan. “When it came down to it, we saw in Anaconda a company that was well established, had great employees and dealers, and had many of the same values and business principles as we do. Adding them to our family of companies seemed like a clear fit.”
Founded in 2008 by Alistair Forsyth and Martin Quinn, Anaconda Equipment has spent the last decade developing their extensive range of mobile tracked equipment. The range includes scalping, screening, recycling and conveying equipment, which is sold through a global dealer network. In the past 10 years, they have sold over 1,200 units into more than 50 countries across six continents.
