Astec Underground of Loudon, Tenn., last week announced the opening of Astec Underground North Atlantic in Long Branch, N.J. This new dealer will cover the entire state, targeting the underground, utility, irrigation, landscape and directional drilling markets.
Astec Underground offers a broad, complete line of underground construction solutions that includes three proven brands: Astec, American Augers and Trencor, the company says. The product lines consist of: utility trenchers, vibratory plows, horizontal directional drilling systems, boring machines, drilling fluid systems, maxi-rig HDD systems, specialty trenchers and heavy-duty rock excavation machines for virtually any underground application.
Astec will offer complementary underground products and brands including Mark V, Eclipse, Baker Hughes, Big Tow Trailers and Railhead. By partnering with these manufactures, the new dealership will be able to provide full-circle solutions to meet all its customers’ underground equipment needs.
The Astec staff is fully trained in the application, sales and service of Astec Underground products and to offer prompt and professional parts and service support from its Long Branch, N.J., location.
Astec Underground North Atlantic is in an urban enterprise zone, thus allowing the branch to make sales at 3 percent sales tax verses the standard 6 percent sales tax in the state.
