partnership excavator US UKCompany Wrench Ltd., a Carroll, Ohio-based specialty equipment sales, rental, parts and service company with 13 locations in the U.S., has partnered with Kocurek Excavators Ltd., Ipswich, United Kingdom. According to Company Wrench, the exclusive Kocurek dealership agreement will allow it to expand its products and services deeper into the demolition market segment in the U.S. and Canada.

Company Wrench has its own fabrication and manufacturing facility in CW Machine Worx Ltd., based in Carroll. In recent years, the company says the facility has been inundated with orders for producing custom fabricated products, high-reach machines, long-reach machines, cab extensions, auto dismantlers and other specialty equipment for Company Wrench, as well as completing customer machine modifications and custom high-reach machines for its specialty demolition customers.

Kocurek Excavators Ltd. says it was looking for the right partner to take its high-reach and long-reach fronts into the North American market. Brian Carroll, Kocurek general manager, says, “The timing of this agreement is perfect. The U.S. has been very slow to adopt high-reach demolition equipment that is standard equipment here in Europe. But having been pioneered by a few forward-thinking contractors, the concept is really starting to gain momentum in the US. And with its long history of supplying the U.S. demolition sector, Company Wrench is ideally placed to take maximum advantage of that market potential.”
