Astec Industries signed a distribution contract designating Aramine its official dealer in several countries in West Africa.

Previously Aramine offered strictly the Astec BTI range of rock breaker and boom systems.

The partnership allows Astec Industries Africa Middle East to develop a new customer proximity offer, the company reported. “With the expansion of the Astec portfolio distributed by Aramine, this is an important evolution in our commercial relations, as we collaborate in very active and demanding markets in West Africa and the Maghreb,” Vinesh Surajlall, director, material solutions, Astec Industries Africa Middle East, said.

Under the contract, Aramine will be the official dealer for Astec Industries in Mauritania, Mali, Senegal, Guinea, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, Benin, Togo, Niger, Algeria, Tunisia and Morocco.
