Brokk AB, a manufacturer of remote controlled demolition machines with a U.S. office in Monroe, Wash., has added James Catalanotto as its new regional sales representative for New England. Catalanotto owns and operates EMCAT LLC, a manufacturers’ representative company in Boston.

Catalanotto has been assigned by Brokk to strengthen relationships with current customers while developing new connections for Brokk in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.

“Cat (Catalanotto) brings a wealth of experience to meeting the needs of our customers in the northeastern region of the United States, and we’re delighted to welcome him to our sales family,” says Peter Bigwood, vice president of sales and marketing for Brokk in North America. “Cat is going to be a dependable asset for customers in terms of information about the unusual tasks our machines handle and the value Brokks bring to a wide range of demolition and construction projects.”

Catalanotto has more than 22 years of sales experience in both distribution and direct lines, and his company represents numerous brands of equipment and attachments.

Prior to launching EMCAT in 2012, Catalanotto was the northeastern U.S. sales manager for Husqvarna Construction Products for nearly 12 years and before that was a sales lead for Pro-Companies, Waltham, Mass.

“Brokk machines have proven their unique capabilities on some of the largest projects in the world,” Catalanotto says. “Brokk is also the largest and most experienced specialty robotic equipment company in the industry and it has earned its reputation as the cream of the crop for support after the sale. I’m proud to be on the front lines with our customers in the field.”

Brokk has been a maker of remote-controlled demolition and construction machines and attachments for more than 30 years. The machines can be used in construction, demolition, mining and tunneling, cement and process, nuclear and other specialty applications. More information on the company can be found at
