Atlas Copco recently appointed Parts Sales Botswana as a distributor of Atlas Copco Road Construction and Construction Tools equipment in Gaborone, Botswana, where major infrastructural developments including an extensive road network upgrade, the construction of two dams, an extension of the power station, hospitals, stadia and the massive upgrade of the Sir Seretse Khama Airport are all underway.
“For many years, Botswana’s diamond mining activities have made a major contribution towards the country’s GDP, but this is changing and construction activities are making a significant impact on GDP figures” said Mike Denbury, managing director for Parts Sales Botswana.
Parts Sales Botswana will market and provide aftermarket support for the full range of Dynapac road construction equipment, including the light and concrete range of products, as well as Atlas Copco’s extensive range of hydraulic, pneumatic and petrol-powered construction equipment.
“This is a partnership that will provide Botswana’s construction industry with access to an extensive range of quality construction equipment and aftermarket support from a well respected service provider in the region,” said Bill Jenkins, business line manager for Atlas Copco’s Road Construction Equipment division in southern Africa.
Parts Sales Botswana was established in 1987 employing only six people. It has grown into a business that currently employs nearly 60 people.
