Benelux – Heavy Handling, the Belgian distributor of heavy machinery, is set to open a new branch in Antwerp next month which will act as a prime location for distribution and service for Belgium and Luxembourg.This ‘natural expansion’ into new territory will be supported by the company’s supplying brands, such as material handling and port cranes from Mantsinen and wheel loaders from Ljungby Maskin. Both equipment and parts will be available for sale and rental. Together with the headquarters in Oudenaarde, Heavy Handling will offer a ‘central hub’ for service, spare parts and stock of machines in Antwerp.
Through the expansion, Belgian customers will gain ‘a single contact point’ while further specialisation can be achieved by bundling technological knowledge.
‘Putting Heavy Handling on the map has been my life’s work,’ says managing director Christophe Crombez. ‘I am extremely proud that the long-standing relationships with our customers and suppliers have been able to continue to develop in such a way.’
